The Sheepdogs

While most rock bands are all too focused on the riff, the Sheepdogs remember the importance of those other elements that make for great rock music: melody, harmony and groove. To see them live is pure rock and roll jubilation, to revel in the splendor created by 3 part vocal harmonies and heavy hitting dual guitar leads.

The Saskatoon four-piece were recently the winners for a six-month competition to be the first band or artist not signed with a major label to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Voted by more that 1.5 million fans worldwide, the Sheepdogs beat out over two thousand bands in the competition that garnered them a record deal with Atlantic records, a performance at Bonnaroo, two appearances on late night with Jimmy Fallon. Their latest ep five easy pieces debuted no. 1 on itunes in Canada and their full length learn & burn continues to climb the charts and fly off merch tables.
