About

Your generous support helps us sustain a life in music in an evolving industry that has shifted to a "stream it for free" model. You are helping us pay our studio collaborators, make videos, and promote our tours and albums. It's amazing!!

Our latest two albums, Sunshiner (2017) and Nonet (2020) were self-produced and patron supported.

Thank you, Patrons! We hope you feel as proud as we do.

Current Patrons are able to access Nonet and  Sunshiner (and all bonus songs singles which didn't make the albums) plus an expansive archive of concert recordings, song demos, personal journals, original lyric sheets, album sneak peeks and more.

A dollar is all it takes to get on board and the tiers are only suggestions. (In fact, at your request, we've added a bunch more tiers!)

You can pledge any amount and easily change your monthly subscription level at any time: to make a "custom pledge" click Become a Patron (and scroll down) instead of simply "Selecting a Tier."

AND we highly recommend downloading the Patreon app for receiving updates, engaging, and general ease-of-use. 

With thanks + gratitude we invite you to come be a part of our ongoing musical odyssey. We will make you proud!  Let us know if you have any questions. You can write to us with any questions at heymammals [at] gmail dot com. 

Love,

Mike + Ruthy ( The Mammals)

“Nonet marshals the defiant spirit needed to heal a damaged world” - No Depression

”Escapism that feels almost illegal in today’s atmosphere of isolation.” - American Songwriter

“Nothing short of sublime. 9/10”
- Americana UK

”[Nonet] is big and free and uplifting me at the perfect time! A great f***in’ record.” - Ani DiFranco

“The Mammals are solid-gold-hearted and their music is too. Check this one out. ” - Anais Mitchell

“Transcendent new album from a brilliant group. Do yourself a favor and listen please. Joy-generator right here.”
- Rhett Miller

"What was likely written as an album about where hope resides in a strange political season, reads now as an album about all the reasons to put our selves aside and protect our neighbors. After all, we humans are capable of all of this when we get together—the hope but also the layers of sound, the ability to turn darkness and fear into something you can crank up with the windows down. Something that can feel a little like freedom, even when you’re not leaving the house.” - Kim Ruehl, Folk Alley

“Protest folk records are usually reactionary, but somehow Mike + Ruthy seem to have predicted this moment with their new album.” - WMBR “Pipeline”

"The Mammals don’t suffer from multiple genre syndrome, they celebrate it as if gleefully aware that the sound barriers separating old-timey music, vintage pop and contemporary folk are as permeable as cotton.” - Washington Post

“'[Nonet] is dose of good medicine right when we need it . . . a reminder that we can face daunting challenges together, even if all we have is a teaspoon to dig into a mountain.  – KCBX Program Director

"In a time of uncertainty and fear, The Mammals are gushing with light and hope and honesty. It's evident throughout their new album, Nonet, and especially on the single Radio Signal. In a time when the way to cooperate and protect one another is so counterintuitive - be separate, not together- Radio Signal reminds us that we are surrounded by the hopeful. It's in the wind, it's in the light, it's in the spring songs of the birds, it's in US!. There's a mountain of challenges that we face, so let's get to work. As the song says, "Here’s your tea spoon, let’s start diggin’ “ - Bob Weiser, WOMR 'The Old Songs' Home' Folk and Acoustic Music
