The mockingbird’s call is distinct and one of the loudest in North America. It is the state bird of Tennessee and Texas and one of the only birds that has been known to sing straight through the night.
Meet Mockingbird Sun:
Lead singer and lead guitar player Charlie Berry is another in the long-standing tradition of Texas-raised troubadours. He is a graduate of SMU, where he shined on the gridiron as a defensive tackle. Now, after years as a working musician, Charlie is as comfortable under the stage lights as he was under the stadium lights.
Brown-eyed soul singer and Gibson picker Brett Taylor, also from Texas, graduated from TCU and chased the neon rainbow all the way to Nashville after wearing out the dancehalls in Ft. Worth. A poet from his youth, Brett has found his voice as a songwriter in Music City with songs about pain and restoration, in the city and in the hills.
Renaissance man Truck Roley plays guitar, B3 organ, banjo, mandolin and a little bit of any other instrument you might put in front of him. The son of a musician, Truck was born into a life on the road, has shared his music in all four corners of the U.S, but will always call Nashville home.
