Danielle Caruana is an Australian singer songwriter of Maltese descent, better known as Mama Kin.

Early life

Danielle was born in Melbourne Australia and is the youngest of six in a Maltese musical family. The Caruana family has been entertaining the Maltese community in Melbourne for years, fronted by their father Nicol Caruana. It is not surprising that Danielle’s older brothers went on to become career musicians - Nicholas Caruana, better known as Nicky Bomba, and Michael Caruana.

Danielle became central to the John Butler Trio entourage after she married front man and vocalist John Butler. She steers The Seed Fund – a philanthropic foundation established to support emerging musicians and artists.

Musical career

Mama Kin is known for her unique blend of foot-stomping soul and heart wrenching ballads. Her brother, musician Michael Caruana, is an integral part of Mama Kin’s band, together with Matty Witney and George Servanis.

Mama Kin tour extensively and have performed for audiences from the Woodford Folk Festival to WOMADelaide, Byron Bay Bluesfest and the West Coast Blues’n’Roots Festival.

Danielle is married to Australian musician John Butler and they have two children, a daughter named Banjo and a son, Jahli. They reside in Fremantle, Western Australia.
