Mama's Blue Dress
Mama's Blue Dress is an all-female country quartet featuring airtight harmonies and vocal chemistry, blazing twin fiddles and a hint of soul. As one fan said, "I haven't heard a group of women play and sing together this well since the Bush administration."
Since their first show in January 2012, the band has played to numerous sold-out rooms across the Southeast, often receiving standing ovations for their dynamic performances, stellar songwriting, gorgeous harmonies - and for the homemade baked goods and cakewalks that accompany each show. Mama's Blue Dress has performed at the 30A Songwriters Festival, Folk Alliance, the CMA Music Festival, and the Nashville date of the Country Throwdown tour, where they took the mainstage. The group was recently featured on WSM Radio's "Coffee, Country & Cody".
Each member is an accomplished songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist in their own right:
NICOLE WITT (vocals, fiddle, guitar) has written songs for numerous country stars including George Strait, Lauren Alaina, Rodney Atkins and Terri Clark, and Christian artists such as Mandisa and Natalie Grant.
VANESSA OLIVAREZ (vocals, percussion) is a Dora Award-nominated vocalist who wrote and recorded a Top 10 pop single in Canada. She wrote several songs recorded by Sugarland (including "Sugarland" on their multi-platinum hit album "Enjoy the Ride"), and was recently featured on PBS' Sun Studio Sessions. She was also a Top 12 finalist on the second season of American Idol.
ELIZABETH ELKINS (vocals, guitar) is a Grand Prize Winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest whose songs have been placed on numerous television shows. You may have seen her in Guitar Player magazine and on several PBS programs.
