The Sirens of Spring Tour on WTJU’s “Wild Women and Friends” May 12
Baltimore Based Mama’s Black Sheep and Philadelphia based Christine Havrilla will stop by the WTJU studios on Thursday May 12th from 11am-12pm EDT during their 4th annual SIRENS OF SPRING TOUR.
The SIRENS OF SPRING TOUR is a 22-day, 14-city tour featuring female singer-songwriters. SIRENS OF SPRING started as a co-bill tour with Mama’s Black Sheep & Christine Havrilla, and has now grown to include other artists in select cities along the way.
Mama’s Black Sheep is the soulful collaboration of singer-songwriters Ashland Miller (guitar/vocals) and Laura Cerulli (drums/vocals). Together, this duo harmoniously blends soothing tones, quilted with diverse flavors palatable for every ear. Touring together since 2008, Miller & Cerulli (veterans of the singer-songwriter circuit), will make you feel like every aspect of their journey is in Real-Time. Creating a sound all of their own, Mama’s Black Sheep is driven by Miller’s versatile guitar grooves, Cerulli’s innovative percussion, and two voices that blend like honey & whiskey in perfect harmonious balance. This thought-provoking duo will tantalize your aural appetite, regardless of your musical taste buds, with a diverse blend of blues, soul, country, pop, and more by unapologetically dipping into the well of all music genres. It’s called soulful, poetic story telling with an irresistible groove.

Award-winning Philadelphia native Christine Havrilla brings her “well-built, catchy, smart tunes” (Upstage Magazine) to audiences everywhere, touring nationally and utilizing the soft gritty texture of her vocals to express warmth and honesty listeners quickly embrace as well as her aggressive, raw, trash-style guitar playing and looping. Main Line Today Magazine lists Christine as one the 25 “Power Women” ready to lead (October 2015). “Christine Havrilla is a creative, talented powerhouse wrapped up in one complete package!” exclaims Nor’easter Magazine (Aug 2015). Named “One of the Top Ten Indie Artists” by The Advocate Magazine, The Washington Post writes, “(Havrilla’s) songs are intelligent and moving, the arrangements are incisive and colorful, and, best of all, Havrilla consistently comes across as a confident and seasoned performer.”
