Mother Mother plays a tune on a public piano


Another video is in from the folks at Big Smoke Productions who are releasing the Keys to the Streets series of videos of professional musicians playing the public pianos. This one’s with Mother Mother and here’s what the producers had to say about it:

We met up with Jasmin and Ryan on a hot afternoon in July, immediately after the shadow of the Cambie Bridge had moved far enough to soak the piano in the scorching heat of this glorious Vancouver summer. Between the street art and the spectacular view of the city, this is probably one of my favourite pianos to film, and as a resident of the Cambie Village neighbourhood I’ve come across countless impromptu performances of all shapes and sizes on my sea wall-strolls.

Mother Mother are one of the busier touring acts in the series this year and their professionalism showed as we were treated to a beautiful one-take rendition of ‘Worry’. The pair wrote this song 8 years ago, although it has never been recorded and only ever played live. By that token, consider this something of a Keys To The Streets exclusive!
