This is Paul McNees' solo project. The first album was called "Songs and Other Delusions" and is available on CDBaby. On that album, Paul played most of the instruments and included members of his former band, Bass Line Dada. Paul was also a member and songwriter for the Bay Area band, Hoarhound whose other member Ari Fellows-Mannion went on to form Loretta Lynch with Val Esway (Ramona the Pest). The new album, Lacuna, was produced by Mark Growden and is intended as a tribute to Paul's father who passed away in May of 2011. The record includes a group of exceptional musicians and was engineered by the brilliant Myles Boisen. You can purchase the new record now on CDbaby! http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/themockingbirds1

He is currently pursuing his Phd in Philosophy with a focus on Music and the Evolution of Consciousness. The Mockingbirds is a labor of love that gives expression to Paul's dedication to music and the alchemy of collaborative participation.
