“MY BABY serve up acid-fried country stompers that will haunt your dreams for weeks.” Q MAG

“Psychedelic tapestries of sounds to drilled down beats, classic songwriting to a keen exploration of sound.” CLASH

Fresh from the success of their first major headline tour across the UK and Europe and appearances on major festivals such as Glastonbury, Wilderness and the German Reeperbahn, Amsterdam based psychedelic/shamanic/folk/rock trio MY BABY is ready for the next round. The trio will be heading to New Zealand, the home for guitarist Daniel “daFreez” Johnston and by now the band’s second home in support of their album ‘Shamanaid’. Expect their swampy blues, roots and funk inflected sound and be ready to what they call “a voodoo ceremony”.

MY BABY have been rightly celebrated by Q Mag, Clash, The Sunday Express, BBC Radio 6 and 2, Classic Rock Blues Mag, Balcony TV, Artrocker, Amazing Radio and more. Earlier this year brother-sister-duo Joost ‘Sheik’ (drums) and Cato van Dyck (vocals) plus faithful guitarist Daniel supported blues legend Seasick Steve, playing 14 major venues (including the legendary Hammersmith Apollo) throughout the UK and gaining many new fans along the way. They put in similarly transcendent appearances at Brighton’s The Great Escape and International Live Music Festival. They also played Glastonbury Festival and could be seen at Wilderness, Rhythms Of The World, Lodestar and many key festivals throughout Europe..

MY BABY latest release ‘Remedy II’, a newly re-recorded alternative version of the track originally found on their second album ‘Shamanaid’ received support from Clash magazine, COMPLEX, BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson, Amazing Radio and over 20 regional radio stations. Its stomping, sultry groove evokes the likes of The Allman Brothers, Delaney & Bonnie, The Black Crowes, The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, Dungen and Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac. Bewitching vocalist Cato van Dyke weaves her beguiling incantations atop the song’s hypnotic rhythmic repetitions, answered by the cracking, howling guitar of Daniel “daFreez” Johnston. With this song, MY BABY demonstrate an uncanny ability to distill hallowed influences into a sound that is wholly, unmistakably, powerfully now.

The tour is set to kick off end of January 2016.
