Biography

My bubba

Scandinavian folk duo My bubba will be releasing their second album, BIG BAD GOOD. Recorded with Shahzad Ismaily (Will Oldham, Jolie Holland) at his Brooklyn studio Figure 8 Recording (the hideaway where Richard Hell, Pussy Riot and Nick Zinner converged to record “I Can’t Breathe”), the album will be released on April 15 on Cash Only Records. BIG BAD GOOD is a record so intimate and raw, it’s the sonic equivalent of feeling skin-on-skin — as the album’s sensual, black and white nude artwork illustrates. This gorgeously bare sound is the result of My Bubba choosing to write the songs in the studio and record them as they emerged, working intuitively and fearlessly.

My bubba (My Larsdotter (pronounced mee) and Bubba Tomasdottír) has toured with Damien Rice, co-written music with Matthew E. White, recorded with Noah Georgeson, gone karaoke singing with Gillian Welch—and racked up over 5 million Spotify streams along the way.

Bubba and My met by chance when they became roommates in Denmark in 2008, forming an immediate and effortless musical connection. Soon after, they were invited to tour in Italy – and ended up making their first album; ‘How it’s done in Italy’.

Several adventures later, the duo followed up with Goes Abroader, produced by Noah Georgeson (Joanna Newsom, Devendra Banhart). They recorded in two LA studios—the first off Skid Row, the second, Charlie Chaplin’s old mansion, and the album was released in 2014 on Fake Diamond Records (Oh Land).

My bubba toured Europe with Matthew E White in 2013, which led to My co-writing the gorgeous, grooving song “Love is Deep” on White’s Fresh Blood album. In 2014, My bubba met Damien Rice, Sam Amidon and Shahzad Ismaily at a music festival in Iceland; the musicians jammed together, swam together and discovered a creative affinity. When Shahzad invited My bubba to make a record in his newly-opened studio they intuitively decided to go for it.
