Brock was so moved by Lacy's songs he is releasing Mimicking Birds' self-titled album on his own Glacial Pace records. Originally, the teaming came about because of a third party, a friend of Lacy's. "I didn't actually send in a CD personally, a friend of mine did," Lacy says. "We've been aware that Isaac [had] a label and it had been going for a little while, he had Mason Jennings on there. [It] seemed like a good opportunity."
The soft-spoken Lacy is very unassuming about the opportunity to work with Brock. "It seemed like a pretty neat place to be as an artist," he says of recording on Glacial Pace. "We definitely have a lot of interests stylistically and substance-wise."
The two got to explore those similarities last year when they toured together, and Lacy naturally learned much during that run together. "There's a lot that I've learned more or less, subtly little things here and there that add up to just really how to approach situations and performing aspects of everything," he says. Brock found his touring mate to be a quick study. "He got better and better every night," Brock says. "It was really cool to see. I don't think I did personally figured out how to fix things I was doing live nearly as quickly as I saw him [do it]."
Brock is a very proud label boss, putting out 'Mimicking Birds.' "I'm really glad that it worked out we are working together 'cause it would've been sad not to have gotten to be involved in it," he says. "He's a really easy guy for me to get along with and I like to work on projects that I actually just want to listen to in general."
