Forming in Boston in 2018, Canadian-American indie rock outfit Mom Rock combines the forces of Curtis Heimburger, Wilson Reardon, and Tara Maggiulli. They got their start taking Boston’s college party scene by storm, and have since stolen the hearts of show-goers with electric live sets, infectious original tunes, and signature themed get-ups.
Mom Rock’s discography is a whip-smart and poignant Bildungsroman, written in real time as the band kicked their way through a pandemic, an unprecedented global recession, the creeping influence of the metaverse, and—perhaps most daunting of all—college.
The band’s catalog begins with their rosy, jangle-pop-inflicted singles “Conversation” and “Grand Romantic Life” and is followed by the more angsty stylings of 90s alternative-inspired “I Am The Same” and “Xylophone.” They’re not afraid of getting emotional, either; “Flinching” is a break-up anthem that decries the toll a fading love takes, and “if i had better friends” examines the bleak loneliness that comes with self-isolation. Altogether, their catalog is a crash course in young adulthood and all that comes with it—friendship, heartbreak, self-love, self-loathing, and the very human need to belong.
With nothing but organic grassroots efforts, Mom Rock have surpassed 7,000,000 streams on Spotify alone and have reached a global audience of over 600,000 listeners. They’ve released four EPs to date, and have been slated to play on stages of festivals like Shaky Knees, Music Midtown, Osheaga, and Mile of Music. They were recently featured as Rolling Stone’s Hot Band in their 2022 Hot Issue, and are a 2023 Salt Lick Incubator grant recipient. Mom Rock are currently based in Nashville, and are available for any Little League games you need players for.
