Rock and roll music has always been a tricky label to stick on to a style of music. There comes the debate of what rock truly is and how it has evolved over the decades. I’m of the mind that rock music can have many different sounds from heavy hitting to laid back. If you want an example of the potential variety in rock music then go see a The Sheepdogs show. Their songs are like an example of a set of music heard on a classic rock radio station. On their songs you get snippets of roots rock, Southern rock, blues, and psychedelic jams. They are like listening to Led Zeppelin, Creedance Clearwater Revival and The Allman Brothers all rolled into one.
Canadian rockers The Sheepdogs are a unique sounding rock band that stands out from the commercial masses. They are firing on all pistons lately combining a strong sound, lyrics that will stick with you and plenty of upper scale musicianship. They have that jam band feel in which all members are having a grand old time playing together.
Your ears will be loving what they are hearing. The songs all have a sound that will make you feel some nostalgia for old school rock while at the same time being completely fresh sounding. A nice mixture of mid-tempo songs with total rockers. Will appeal to both sides – chill and energetic – of most fans music listening personas.
