THE MORNING BIRD:
share this video
“Sweet Wine” recorded live at Mindrocket Studio Emerging from the eclectic Cleveland music scene, The Morning Bird fuse Indie Folk, Alt-Country and Rust Belt Blues with authenticity and conviction. Becoming a band in 2018, the quartet have quickly honed in a sound that sounds like they’ve been together for a decade. One shining example of this is the song “Sweet Wine,” performed live for their Mindrocket Session and also a standout cut from their debut EP, “Lonesome Leaving Sound.” The track oozes desperation and a longing for connection and balance. “Tell me all your wildest dreams, your insecurities and fears. I want to feel every scar dear, each wound, it makes you who you are. Come and drink me like sweet wine. I need you to take away my doubts,” is crooned across the track’s second half, while really driving home the song’s sentiment. All the while, these lyrics are delivered underneath cool and balanced blues riffs packed full of emotion.

Mindrocket Recording Studio, home of Mindrocket Sessions, sits between Cleveland, Ohio and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on the OH/PA state line.
In 2014, Mindrocket Engineer Josh Roman joined forces with independent music podcaster Jimmy Martin. The duo began to produce live session videos featuring regional and touring bands from all across the US, as well as bands from Europe and Canada. Finding themselves in a growing live session arena with studios such as Audiotree, KEXP, and NPR’s Tiny Desk Sessions; Roman and Martin tagged their original live Sessions The Mindrocket Project. They would go on to record over 50 sessions featuring bands like The Vindys, Teenage Bubblegums, The Multiple Cat, J.D. Eicher, and many more.
More recently, the guys from Mindrocket recruited Rebreather bassist Steve Wishnewski and his bizarre video art, infusing a new layer of artistic video imagery into the session-videos, calling these live in-studio performances, Mindrocket Sessions.
