Seaside Summer Concert Series - Mockingbird Sun - Wednesday, June 8th
The Merchants of Seaside are excited to welcome Mockingbird Sun as the second artist to perform during the SEASIDE SUMMER CONCERT SERIES on Wednesday, June 8th at 7PM!
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 Matthew “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.
The boys came together through collaborations with veteran country songwriter and sage Tom Douglas, and alongside him have cultivated their first EP.
Charlie, Brett, and Truck have been strongly influenced by a variety of music icons from Hank Williams to Tom Petty. Their distinct voices and styles weld together in three-part harmony. They draw from the slow blue heat of vintage country to solder whiskey-washed folk with classic American rock and roll. They write and play what they love with a Texas twang and a Tennessee twist.
