Mockingbird,the third album from the Austin-based outfit. Mike And The Moonpies solidified themselves over the past several years as Austin, Texas’ premier honky-tonk band. Maintaining weekly residencies at iconic venues like Broken Spoke, White Horse and Hole in the Wall all while touring Texas every weekend has made the band tighter than they’ve ever been. The growing regional popularity of their 2012 release The Hard Way and this nonstop touring schedule has allowed them to take the entire Texas music scene by storm. Produced by frontman, Mike Harmeier and longtime friend and musician Michael Kingcaid, this album features 10 brand new original songs all written by Harmeier and performed by the Moonpies. Several guest performers that appeared on 2012’s The Hard Way returned for this one, including Warren Hood (Lyle Lovett), Jenn Miori Hodges (Carper Family), and Pete Weiss (Leo Rondeau). The album was recorded at the legendary Cedar Creek Studio in Austin by John Silva (the Trishas) and mixed at Good Danny’s in Austin by Max Lorenzen. Mockingbird is sure to make a huge impact on the Texas Country scene and place the Moonpies in a position to break into the Americana.
