"Soul 'n Roll from the heart of North Carolina..."
Jive Mother Mary is not the typical story you see in Rock N' Roll these days. They were not created to take an easy ride to the top. They're the type of band that comes from long friendships, 500 mile van rides, and honing your skills for 15 years in smoky bars, which is miraculous when you take into account that the founding members are less than 30 years old. Steeped in the Southern Rock tradition, this band is the culmination of that magic blend of blood, sweat, and soul that sticks to your ribs like a sunday dinner.
Since 2006, North Carolina natives and long-time friends Mason Keck (guitar/vocals), Seth Aldridge (drums), and Tyler Schulz (guitar/vocals) toured over 30 states and 6 countries; sharing the stage with legends such as Buddy Guy, Leon Russell, Grand Funk Railroad, and current powerhouses like Blackberry Smoke, The Steel Woods and Drive-By Truckers. Originally formed as a power-trio, the band put out two albums win 2007 and 2009 with Grammy-nominated producer John Custer(Dave Grohl, Corrosion of Conformity, Dag). Years in Los Angeles, CA at Musician's Institute sharpened their skills and resulted in 2013's Big City Blues, and the 2016 release Home Is Where The Heart Is was an amalgamation of two years in Athens, GA.
As of 2021, the band has released their third full length album, "8 Tracks" with bassist Keith Ingalls on board for his second album with the band. With things slowly getting back to normal after the COVID-19 pandemic, the band is poised and ready to hit the road and take these new tunes to the people.
