My Morning Jacket
The reason and meaning behind the band name remains somewhat of a mystery, a list of possible explanations can be found here though.


An Omnichord is an electronic musical instrument, introduced in 1981 and manufactured by the Suzuki Musical Instrument Corporation. It typically features a touch plate, and buttons for major, minor, and diminished chords. The most basic method of playing the instrument is to press the chord buttons and swipe the touch plate with a finger or guitar pick in imitation of strumming a stringed instrument. (Also, see Laser Harp)

Pooch is a poncho-wearing stuffed bear that follow My Morning Jacket around, keeping the band company on stage and performing other important tasks. 


Reverb is the persistence of sound in a particular space after the original sound is removed. A reverberation, or reverb, is created when a sound is produced in an enclosed space causing a large number of echoes to build up and then slowly decay as the sound is absorbed by the walls and air.

Alternative definition: The bands sixth member, according Tom "Two-Tone Tommy" Blankenship (Z EPK).

Sam Ericksson
Photographer, director
Ericksson has photographed the band extensively through the years, he also directed 2006 concert movie Okonokos. Other major projects include Still Moving, a collection of his portraits of the band—many shot while filming Okonokos.

The Sound Strike
On June 28 2010 My Morning Jacket joined the Sound Strike, which at the time consisted of a group of musicians taking a stand for civil and human rights in a collective decision to boycott Arizona and to make a call to other artists to Boycott Arizona due to the passage of the law SB1070. Later the strike grew to contain people from other areas of society as well.

The Battle Plan
