Formed CA, United States
Members: Nancy Brown (vocals), Tom Brown (vocals, guitar), Michael Patrick Moore (drums).
"High Flying Bird" was written by Billy Ed Wheeler, a country-folk singer-songwriter in 1963.The song was covered by many folk and rock artists and bands like Richie Havens, Jefferson Airplane, HP Lovecraft,The Wizards from Kansas and others.
Note from band member: My name is Michael Patrick Moore. I was the original drummer for Rejoice. We were signed by Jay Lasker, president of the Dunhill label at the time, and we originally went into the studio with Terry Melcher as producer.
That was April 1968. While in the middle of our third or fourth song, Terry's father passed away and Terry was gone for about a week. Eventually, we went back to Marin County. Months later, Tom and Nancy Brown, the singers and main songwriters, went back to L.A. with Steve Barri as producer and completed the Rejoice album using studio musicians: Hal Blaine (drums), Joe Osborne (bass) and Larry Knechtel (piano).
