2019 New Release 

"Great Big Mama Sunshine"

 “Great Big Mama Sunshine” emerged from the influence of tireless sun and intense heat, forging a new sound of Southwestern Soul.  

From the cacti to tumbleweeds comes a gritty album full of jangle and covered in dust.  The record is a timeless road trip through the Southwest on a horse with no name.

"Great Big Mama Sunshine offers food for some foot-tapping thought, and it will leave you a little wiser—and more grateful—than you were before.." 


- Musically Speaking- ABQ, NM

"... a New Folk of the American West that captures in a bottle the dust storms and tsunamis of the heart.." 

"" ..a deliberate and welcome sense of hope and positivity, which we probably all need a little of right now.. ""

"" .. If Johnny Cash was a Girl from Alaska.." 

Fan Review - Fort Benton, CO 

"" ..TRUE GRIT! .."

- KINK FM- Portland, Oregon 

". . (Great Big Mama Sunshine).. serves as a light in a world of pessimism while standing firmly in being true to yourself, a message this country needs desperately.."

- Glide Magazine 2020

Moody Little Sister has met and magnetized audience’s imaginations since the debut album Wild Places appeared in 2015, produced by folk-rock icon Pete Droge, and propelled by the drumming of Jay Bellerose (Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Joe Henry, Elton John).


This unique songwriting style has been described as “masterly” (Oregon Music News) and “earthy and approachable” (Bitch), these are not songs charging towards the mainstream; this is not a band spraying buckshot for new fans.

Moody Little Sister has built a loyal communit the old-old-old fashioned way: one listening room, house concert, front porch, and campfire at a time.


Between a Catholic confessional and big tent revival, dusty and delicate. In Sparrow’s dexterous voice there is both the familiar warmth and soul sensibility of 70’s singer-songwriters like Leon Russell, and the lyrical daring of folk-pop singers like Patti Griffin or Anais Mitchell. 


Moody Little Sister is a New Folk of the American West that captures in a bottle the dust storms and tsunamis of the heart.

This, along with igniting listeners to live life fearlessly, Moody Little Sister, is meeting our 21-Century Emergency with an urgent intimacy.
