Following the viral and radio success of their debut singles "Come By Me" and "Down By The River", MOM + THE REBELS return with an another feel-good banger, true to their refreshingly-unique pop sound!


Set for release Wednesday June 14th "SWAYZE" has the same banjo and bass-driven foundation that fans have grown to love from MOM + THE REBELS but with a strong 80's disco influence on the production.  Lyrically it tells the story of two people realising that they are destined for each other and just leaning into the feeling.


Dedicated to the fans that made their debut single "Come By Me" go viral back in 2020 alongside a meme of Patrick Swayze dancing to it "SWAYZE" may just be the SONG OF THE SUMMER 2023!




"My most-played artist on Spotify 2022"

Louise Duffy, RTE Radio 1


"The best use of banjo on the radio since Mumford and Sons"

Chris Greene, 2fm

“I am obsessed! My favourite"Track of the Week" on Spin SW, maybe ever!"

Louise Cantillon, SPIN South West

"Just so cool! I love it!"

Doireann Garrihy, 2fm

"I haven't been this excited about a new Irish group in years!"

John Toal, BBC Radio Ulster

“Between the banjo touches and the smooth lo-fi breakdown... and each singer contributing their own excellent performances before fusing perfectly together on the hook, which has been stuck in my head since I heard it... yeah, I'm satisfied." (14.4.21)


7-time All-Ireland champion harp and banjo player, Lisa Canny, from Co. Mayo met Bristol-born producer and bass player Dejay Edmund in a studio in London in 2016.  When their two worlds collided something magical happened.  They spent the next 3 months living and working out of a tiny studio with just one microphone and a whole world of fusion to explore.  Now with a catalogue of dozens of songs ready for release in their unique pop sound MOM + THE REBELS are here to have their say!


The duo will tour UK and Ireland later this year and early 2024.  Tickets go on sale in July.
