Track Dogs comprises 2 Irishmen, 1 Englishman and 1 American. The band came together in 2011 to make their unique brand of acoustic music.
Featuring a veritable 4x4 of voices and instruments, their style is a dynamic fusion of folk, Latino, Americana & bluegrass.
Since their blistering Costa del Folk debut in 2018, Track Dogs have been barnstorming the UK. This includes some major festival appearances and collaborations as well as surprising music lovers with “sun-shiny songs thriving on dark themes behind irresistible rhythms”. 2019 was a pivotal year, including playing to a heaving, rocking Trafalgar Square. It was also the year and the surprise on-stage participation of Steve Knightley and Seth Lakeman at Shrewsbury Folk Festival.
Well-established in Spain, where they are based, the four international “madrileños” (Garrett Wall, Dave Mooney, Howard Brown & Robbie K. Jones) derive their band name from the dark subterranean world of New York’s subway system. Their new album, Fire On The Rails produced by Germàn Gutiérrez, has managed to make Track Dogs pack even more punch. They have achieved grandeur in the sound that they’ve been cultivating over more than 100 songs in their recording career.
“Fire on The Rails sparks kinetic energy, just as the title promises, reeling out ten high-octane tracks with slick production and a sizzling pulse.” - Bryony Hegarty, R2 Magazine
“One of the great strengths of Track Dog’s music is the eclectic mix of genres they so successfully blend… It’s far easier to identify it as the “Track Dogs sound” than it is to tease apart individual elements” - Johnny Whalley, Folkradio.co.uk
“We’ve had many bands and artists come through our doors over the years, but Track Dogs are right up there with the very best of them, that much is certain! The connection they make with the audience is something special - smiles are the currency that they deal in with their mesmeric and ridiculously addictive sound. Destined to be huge festival favourites!”- Ken Brown, Square Roots Promotions
