Hailing from the icy river banks of Minneapolis / St. Paul, Mama Caught Fire is an all-female trio whose music explores harmonic intricacy, lyrical emotion, and the power of voice.

Band members Abigail Tuominen, Molly Sowash, and Julia Hobart met as students at Macalester College through an extra-curricular a cappella group. After discovering their mutual adoration of folk and blues music, the three embarked on their first musical project, calling themselves Chicory.

Since its 2013 origin, the group has shifted its focus to creating and recording original work as Mama Caught Fire.
