Mother Mother is an indie rock band based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The band consists of Ryan Guldemond on guitar and vocals, Molly Guldemond on vocals and keyboards, Jasmin Parkin on keyboards and vocals, and Ali Siadat on drums. Longtime bassist Jeremy Page left the band in 2016. In 2015, they independently released their self-titled debut album under the name Mother. They later changed their name to Mother Mother, and re-released the album on Last Gang Records in 2007. Retitled Touch Up, the reissue also featured several new songs. The band began in Heriot Bay in January 2005 when Ryan was at music school and wanted to start a band based on vocal-driven pop songs. He recruited his sister Molly along with a friend from college, Debra-Jean Creelman, to accompany his own vocals for songs he had written the trio played as an acoustic act before adding drummer Kenton Loewen and bassist Jeremy Page.
