Bad Mother Nature visits KDRT June 21 at 4 p.m. (International Music Day)

Friday, June 21, is International Music Day - so let's celebrate with one of Sacramento's premier rock bands: BAD MOTHER NATURE.

Bad Mother Nature, an original band formed in 2016, consists of guitarist/bassist duo Axel Ahrens and Corey Allred, pianist Ryan Allred, and drummer Jon McCann. Inspired by the classic rock titans of the 1960s and '70s, they balance driving guitar-riff work with the nuanced, progressive piano that allows their music to range from soft to rocking - often within the same song.

Their debut EP “Strange Weather,” featuring Colin Curtin on drums, presented a range of styles from the upbeat blues-rock Honey Rider, to the instrumental guitar piece Persephone, to the anthemic ballad I’ll Make You a Thief. UK rock magazine Fireworks profiled the album and the band.

Their latest feature LP “Porcelain Martyr” was released Feb. 8, 2019. A departure from the raw guitar-heavy style of the previous EP, the album is a conceptually thematic overture of progressive rock, utilizing more backing vocals and harmonies, piano-driven riffs, and instrumental experimentation.

This broacast will also be streamed live on kdrt.org.
