Mother Falcon Details
Mother Falcon is an orchestral indie band born in Austin, Texas that has quickly become an award winning recording act and a top concert draw, performing in rock clubs while maintaining a presence in the performing arts scene scoring plays and films. The group began to coalesce around multi-instrumentalist and composer Nick Gregg while the members were still teenagers, coming together via orchestral and chamber music classes. Composing as a collective, the 18 piece ensemble includes several multi-instrumentalists and most of the players contribute vocals. Guitarist/pianist Claire Puckett, accordionist/pianist Tamir Khalifa and percussionist/saxophonist Issac Winburne form the creative core along with Nick Gregg, though all members contribute musically.
Still Life, the debut EP, was released in early 2010 and spawned the local hit “Marigold.” Mother Falcon’s first full length, Alhambra, was released in February 2011 and gained immediate raves and heavy spins on the influential public radio station KUT, charted in the top ten on several college stations and hi #61 on the CMJ chart.
