MorningBird is singer-songwriter Rob Wheeler, violinist Jill Burkes, and upright bass player Josh Palmi -all from the Northern Minnesota area. Burkes started off playing Finnish folk music on the violin when she was a child, and then moved into more classically trained music. Wheeler has played guitar since he was a teenager, beginning with heavy metal riffs, but he expanded into old country music and eventually all genres. Palmi is a singer songwriter himself and joined the band February 2023 on the upright bass. The three harmonize together on classic folk covers and originals. They recorded their first EP Cosmic Escape at Birch Bay Studios in 2021. Their new single and video, Old Missabe Road, was released in January 2023, recorded at Sparta Sound Studios.
