No lemon. No salt. No chaser. Melbourne’s Tequila Mockingbyrd are a shot of straight up rock n roll packing a high energy punch that will hit you from the first explosion of sound until long into the after-party.  Comprised of Louisa Baker (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Jacinta Jaye (Bass, Backing Vocals) and Josie O’Toole (Drums, Backing Vocals) the band are rapidly becoming known for their explosive live shows and punk rock sound. With an arsenal of catchy riffs and memorable choruses, Tequila Mockingbyrd pump out party anthems like ‘Good Time’ and their disco-punk ode to Melbourne’s iconic Esplanade Hotel ‘Never Go Home’, then rip into bottom-heavy stomping tracks such as ‘I Smell Rock n Roll’ and ‘Everyone Down’.

Since their inception in 2012, the trio has toured Australia multiple times and earned killer support slots with international acts such as Cherie Currie of The Runaways and punk icon Richie Ramone whose management hand‐picked the girls for the slot having heard their cover of The Ramone’s classic “Somebody Put Something in my Drink”.

At the end of 2015 the T‐Byrds spread their wings internationally for the first time, having the honour of visiting The Middle East on a Government-sponsored “Tour of Duty” to entertain the troops.

Their debut album “Fight and Flight” was self-released in May 2016 in Australia/NZ and debuted at No. 10 in the Australian AIR Charts. Debut single (and fragrance!) “I Smell Rock n Roll” was named Team Rock “Track of the Week” and earned the trio two month’s A-list airplay on the UK’s biggest rock station Planet Rock radio. It also scored the girls a coveted live studio performance on Australia’s leading commercial rock station Triple M.

Late 2016 saw the trio take to international stages once again, hitting the ground running with more than 40 shows across the UK and Europe including festival appearances at Hard Rock Hell and Planet Rockstock. They continued to build momentum in 2017 with two more UK/Euro tours to coincide with the international release of their debut album through Off Yer Rocka Recordings, notching up another 50 shows including festival appearances at Stonefree, Steelhouse, Wildfire and a return to Hard Rock Hell. In between all this they managed to squeeze in a triumphant return to Australia for a mini-tour supporting the likes of The Darkness and Nashville Pussy.

The trio are currently back in the studio with new music (and shows) scheduled to land early 2018. Look out world; these Byrds cannot be caged.
