Monocle Bird is a multi-generational band that formed in 2010.
Although the members had widely varying ages and musical backgrounds they shared a common interest in classic rock and a desire to create original music. This collaboration resulted in songs that employ elements from various genres against a classic rock canvas.
From the swing feel of Walkin' the Dane, the Spanish Guitar intro to True Colors, the spiritual influence in Life Goes On, the Middle Eastern scales used in Where to Now? and forays into country and folk, the music appeals to a wide audience.
Originally released in September 2012 as a US-only CD and digital downloads, international interest in the music resulted in this re-release of all nine original Monocle Bird songs as a Global Release. This version of the album was made using the same master recordings as the original distribution.
Due to licensing restrictions the Monocle Bird cover of "Linus and Lucy" by Vince Guaraldi could not be included and remains available only within the US.
