Mama’s Black Sheep

Mama’s Black Sheep is the soulful collaboration of singer – songwriters Ashland Miller (guitar/vocals) and Laura Cerulli (drums/vocals). Together, this duo creates a blend of hit worthy originals and covers with a unique spin. Each song allows you to travel with time, whether you’re swinging to Country, Rocking to Pop, Grooving to Soul, or swaying to the Blues; there’s always something to move your body and stir your soul! Touring together since 2008, Miller & Cerulli (veterans of the singer – songwrite r circuit), have created a sound all of their own . Mama’s Black Sheep is driven by Miller’s versatile guitar grooves, Cerulli’s innovative percussion, and two voices that blend like honey & whiskey in perfect harmonious balance. These ladies rock to their own beat, sharing songs of life and love, and empowering the listener to live boldly beyond the barriers. Mama’s Black Sheep has four well received CD’s to their credit ( Unmarked Highway, 2010; Drivin’ On, 2011; Live @ The Bevy, 2016; The Sheep Save Christ mas, 2018 ), and a fully illustrated kids book based on the title track of their Holiday recording , “The Sheep Save Christmas” was released in 2019. The band’s newest single “OCEAN” is available as a digital download and was used as a vehicle for fundraisin g for four non – profit organizations in St. Croix, USVI, where the duo travels each winter to perform. Mama’s Black Sheep ha d been touring full – time throughout the continental U.S. and the Caribbean, playing nearly 200 shows a year prior to the COVID19 pand emic . In March 2020 they found themselves unemployed practically overnight as the country went into lockdown. As many other musicians in the same situation, Mama’s Black Sheep began doing virtual online shows, and finding other creative ways to share their music and talents during quarantine. As venues have gradually reopened, they have continued playing virtual events, a s well as Covid – safe outdoor events. While much of their touring is done as a duo, they are occasionally seen as a trio, or full band wit h the addition of Helen Hausmann on violin and/or Christine Havrilla on bass. Ashland and Laura , produce magical tapestries of songs, weaving energetic color and rich texture to create an infectious and lively conversation between guitar and percussion. Th is thought – provoking duo will tantalize your aural appetite, regardless of your musical taste buds, with a diverse blend of blues, soul, country, pop, and more by unapologetically dipping into the well of all music genres. It’s called soulful, poetic story telling with an irresistible groove.
