[From Myspace] Sporting the long hair and scruffy beards of their musical forefathers, The Sheepdogs create old school rock and roll that moves and grooves. Taking their cues from the Allman Brothers, Creedence, Humble Pie and the Stones, these prairie boys have a sound that is completely faithful to their 70s rock roots, while remaining thoroughly original and fresh. Powerful vocals, a twin guitar attack, stacked harmonies, moody keys and steady grooves all blend together to form an engaging batch of originals. After securing the reputation as the most exciting band to see in their hometown of Saskatoon (and being voted favourite local band by the readers of Planet S magazine), The Sheepdogs have taken their show on the road, touring from coast to coast in Canada and down into the US. They have opened for Matt Mays, the Arkells and Tricky Woo, and have played at Junofest, the Western Canadian Music Awards, Canadian Music Week, and the Red Gorilla festival in Austin, TX. They have independently released three full-length albums, all of which have charted on Earshot’s national monthly top 200 chart, with 2010’s “Learn & Burn” reaching as high as 21. In the summer of 2009, their album “The Sheepdogs’ Big Stand” was nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award for Independent Album of the Year, and the band was nominated for Artist of the Year on XM radio’s The Verge. With no intentions of letting up, summer 2010 sees The Sheepdogs playing a slot at NXNE, and touring across Canada, and heading back into to the studio to record even more 70s grooves.
