Mouse Dog Bird is an Experimental indie-folk band / solo project from Phoenix, AZ. It is the principal recording/performing vehicle for Johnny Raincloud, A songwriter who grew up in and began crafting his style and musical approach in downtown Phoenix spots like The Willow House, Modified Arts and The Trunk Space.

He Studied art and music at University, then returned to Phoenix with a clear artistic goal. His art was going to be simply what he always was. His life, what he sees, what actually happened to him, and most importantly how all those things made him feel.

His sound is focused around minimalism - simply structured songs with grand haunting melodies that kick you in the chest.  The writing 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 synths and analog cassette tape loops. John sings in falsetto and utilizes his lower range to create beautiful aching melodies and deeply personal lyrical structures.  Mouse Dog Bird has received musical comparisons to GSY!BE, Sigur Ros, and Elliot Smith.


Mouse Dog Bird is currently booking shows in AZ.
