Mouse Dog Bird is an ambient indie-folk band from Phoenix, AZ. It is the principal recording/performing vehicle for Johnny Raincloud and Jarod Land, two self taught Singer-Songwriters who grew up writing and playing in Phoenix.
Mouse Dog Bird's sound is focused around minimalism - simply structured songs with grand haunting melodies that kick you in the chest. Mouse Dog Bird is simply the documentation of life, with all the pain, sorrow, and occasional triumphs.
Mouse Dog Bird Is a collaboration of ghosts, with Johnny being at the front. Johnny performs with acoustic guitar layered over digital and analog sound channels. John sings in falsetto and utilizes his lower range to create beautiful aching melodies and deeply personal lyrical structures. Mouse Dog Bird has recieved musical comparisons to Thom Yorke, Sigur Ros, and Elliot Smith.
Mouse Dog Bird is currently booking shows in AZ.
YabYum Music and Arts (Jan 25th, 2017)
"The emotional energy builds in a really subtle and beautiful way as the song sweeps you along from beginning to end, never really breaking from the intentionally placid water but only rippling across the surface. This is definitely an artist I want to hear more from."
Independant Clauses (Jan 22, 2017)
"Slowcore minimalist tendencies, but with the vocals front and center instead of off in the corner somewhere."
