“Mama” Background:
“Mama” is the 3rd song off Cas Haley’s latest 13 track album La Si Dah.

Here’s what Cas Haley had to say in regards to the song:
“Mama was written by my good friend Dave Willingham, who has played music with me for a while. I love the vibe of the song and the message. This is one of the tracks on the new album that Michael G from Easy Star came in to help on the mix, to bring some deeper dub vibes to it.!”

The 13 track album, La Si Dah, will drop May 28th via Easy Star Records. The album was produced by Haley himself under the consultation of good friend & Grammy Award winning producer Rob Fraboni. On the recording process, Haley shares, “The first thing we did was take away all elements of separation. All the instruments and most of the vocals were recorded in the same room at the same time with no isolation and no headphones. Fraboni is from the day when capturing the sound of the performance was the goal versus manipulating them”.
