Mama Gina / Press

“It's hard to believe that Mama Gina is still a relatively new artist in the world of Pagan music. With her third album, Solitaire, due to be released very soon, she is soon to be no longer be known as the new kid on the block, but rather take her place in the pantheon of Pagan music royalty. Solitaire has depth and character. Gina'a soulful voice shines in this well mixed and engineered album. The addition of backup players and singers brings a 1970's pop feel to her song "Goddess Walking". I honestly was reminded of the band America. Since they are one of my favorites, that's a good thing. "Old Ways" takes an intimate look at the spirituality in modern times. "Weed" shows off her bluesy side while telling a great tale. She gets to her tribal roots with the powerful "Old Snake Woman" and gives the listener a smile with "Mama Gaia's Going Through Menopause". Solitaire is a strong album, and a must for your collection. ...”

“If you're looking for strong powerful goddess infused music this is it!”

“… a concert with Mama Gina, whose guitar and lyrics both moved the crowd, as well as created a jovial mood by her natural entertainment qualities … another treat for anyone who can attend her concerts … Mama Gina totally brought down the house …”

“Beautiful, Old Soul and Amazing Musician!!! Mama Gina rocks our world! She is a multi-talented singer-song writer! You know how most musicians sound better on CD than they do live? Well, her CD will hook you by the first song AND she brings something even more special to her live concerts (if you can believe that after hearing the CD =) !!!!! She is not only a soulful musician, but also a bard telling of her travels along the way and is a master of multiple instruments! The only musician I know that can make you laugh and cry in the same song. Absolutely spectacular! Her voice is hauntingly beautiful and the world is better place for having her in it!”

“It was a night to remember. Super intimate ... full of stories and songs you might not otherwise get to hear, with lots of love, laughter and heart. If Mama Gina LaMonte is anywhere near you, GO to her show, you will not be disappointed! On 8/2014 House Concert with Mama Gina”

“Mama Gina performed at the Beltane gathering in Texarkana, and we all fell in love with her and her music. Her songs will bring a tear to your eye and a smile to your lips. Her music is heartfelt and soul-stirring. She is a true treasure!”

Cheryl M. - Facebook

“The amazing, upbeat, eclectic sound of Gina LaMonte on acoustic guitar and drum compliment her melodic lyrics. Each song with a heartfelt story behind it will touch your heart and send your toes to tapping and your hands to clapping.”

“Mama Gina did a concert at our Metaphysical Shoppe, and was amazing. Her music is beautiful, and brought tears to our eyes, and the stories behind the music were amazing! Her music has stuck with all of us!”

“Gina LaMonte's music stays in your mind long after the concert is over!”

M. Wells Smith - Facebook

“I had the pleasure to spend a beautiful Solstice with Gina LaMonte. Spending the day listening, drumming and sharing the gift of music with her was one of the highlights of my year so far. Listening to her haunting voice singing against her drum will send chills down your spine.”

Jim Horncastle - Facebook

“Mama Gina's voice and gift for songwriting have combined to make this album (Goddess Kiss'd) a delight to listen to. I love to turn it up, throw back my head, and sing out loud. Her lyrics make me laugh, cry, and celebrate my spirituality. "Come Trance with Me" is playful and reminiscent of my childhood spent sneaking out of the house at night to frolic in the trees. "Sisters Waiting" is powerful enough to invoke images of ancestors watching over you. There isn't a song that isn't a joy to listen to, for pagans and cowans alike.”

“This was the most AWESOME concert!!! This woman is truly an Angel. With nothing more that a guitar or a drum and her wonderful voice and she ROCKED IT!!!”

Shari Y. - Facebook

“... you really must see her perform some where, anywhere! Her music is of Love, Life, Loss and so much more, Indeed a spiritual journey, as if you were walking in her shoes. I can reach out and touch the very soul of her muse as I listen. We are all indeed blessed to have such a wonderful and talented soul amongst us ...”

"Mama Gina is well poised to be one of the names brought up when discussing modern Pagan music. If there is such a thing as an “A” list of Pagan musicians, Mama Gina is well on her way to being in some very good company with The Undertaker's Daughter. This is a powerful album and she is welcome among the best." David Banach, The Magick Jukebox: Pagan Music and Media from Around the World witchesandpagans.com (3/2014)

“... fabulous, soul moving, earth shattering, chills-down-to-the-bone moving music. CRM comments on 1/24/2014 concert at The Self Center, Winter Haven, FL”

“I can't believe Mama Gina is not famous. The music she writes flows out of her in a way that touches the listener, makes you FEEL. "Come Trance with Me" is my favorite song of all time. Mama Gina's music makes me laugh, cry, and sing out loud with joy.”

“… She's a fantastic story-teller, singer/songwriter in the vein of Joanie Mitchell and Joan Baez, but she also has a powerful, yet bluesy and sultry voice like Anne Wilson. Goddess Kiss'd demonstrates just how multi-talented Gina is … brilliant story-telling, comedy, tender moments and, of course, superb exemplifications of honouring deity. Song of Atonement touches my spirit, … The PSG Song and Flicker and Flame touch that part of me that revels in a fantastically vivid story with just the perfect amounts of humour sprinkled throughout. Goddess Kiss'd was a huge treat to listen to and I look forward to hearing more and more from Mama Gina.”

“Mama Gina is Goddess Kiss'd ... Mama Gina gives her listeners a taste of the divine and the humorous with her debut CD. From the first track “Summer of the Fae” I was hooked. ”Summer” shows Gina’s light side while “Come Trance with Me” shows her spiritual side. “Sisters Waiting” will bring a tear to your eye and “The PSG Song” will leave you laughing. “Come Trance with Me” is a wonderful little piece to help get you in the mood for meditation, exercise or ritual. It will soothe the spirit just enough to get you into that perfect start of a trance state. Or, you can just listen to it to listen to it. “The PSG Song” is very fitting for anyone who has ever attended a large outdoor Pagan festival that has the freedom of body that PSG and other similar festivals do. It could almost be renamed the “Pagan Festival Song” and fits right along with Loke E. Coyote’s “Pagan Polka”. ...”

“Oh, what a night! When the rain came the shop began to fill, and fill. Would there be enough seats? A woman who at first didn't purchase a CD because she hadn't heard of Mama Gina, asked the person next to her to hold her seat as she slipped out to purchase her CD. A couple who could "only stay for about 30 minutes because of a prior commitment" wound up staying for the entire concert, bought two CDs, gave us their email address so we could "let them know when she returns again." We had a drawing at the end of the concert for ticket holders. One of the winners asked if she could trade her gift for a CD...LOL! People were commenting on how they felt transfixed during the concert, how they were held spellbound by the presence of the Gods, how through her story telling they were able to understand they too can know them on a very real personal and spiritual level. Thank you for sharing your bright spirit-filled Soul Gina, the experience was amazing.”

“[Mama Gina spent] ... the better part of two hours entrancing her audience with her music, spurning laughter, love and at times even tears, as we journeyed with her down the road singing of birth, life, unity, and even a celebration of those lost to us. Switching easily from guitar to djembe to two different frame drums, the music and the voice blend went in all different ways for each song, with each as diverse and different as the last. Seemingly one with the instruments and the songs, she performs music that touches the heart.”

“I had such an amazing evening with such beautiful souls at Mama Gina's concert tonight. Every song was so enchanting. Spirit has a beautiful way of blessing us with gifts to express our Divine nature; Mama Gina is one of spirit's great outlets for magical music and enchanted storytelling.”
