Black Wine is comprised of these 3 people: J Nixon on bass guitar and vocals, Jeff Schroeck on guitar and vocals, and Miranda Taylor on drums and vocals. They share songwriting responsibilities. They sound like a lot of bands that you have heard of, but they like to think of themselves as "no-core." As in, no particular brand of music. They play all kinds of music and prefer to not be forced into sounding like one thing. Some frequently visited song topics include: myths, hoaxes, ghosts, Catholicism, Halloween, time-travel, comedians, misanthropy, past mistakes, and cats. They are signed to Don Giovanni Records and have all been playing in the area since the 90's.
