“Sun-shiny songs thriving on dark themes behind irresistible rhythms.”
Comprised of 2 Irishmen, 1 Englishman and 1 American the band came together in 2011 to make their unique brand of acoustic music; a veritable 4×4 of voices and instruments identified for their dynamic fusion of styles including folk, latin, Americana & even some bluegrass.
The four international “madrileños” (Garrett Wall, Dave Mooney, Howard Brown & Robbie K. Jones) whose artistic names derives from the dark subterranean world of New York’s subway system has deepened and elaborated its sound. Producer Germán Gutiérrez has managed to make Track Dogs pack even more punch and achieve grandeur in the sound that they’ve been cultivating over more than 100 songs in their recording career.
Track Dogs have extended the reach of their established sound to the realm of world music with “Love And War”. Apart from the strings of Eli Bishop and a cracking doumbek, the album’s lead track pulls together folk legends Phil Beer of Show of Hands, grammy-winning Lisa Gutkin of the Klezmatics and Fergal Scahill of We Banjo 3 to elevate the call for unity and tolerance that “Love And War” shouts for. Danny Erker (The Jones St. Boys) also adds some stellar mandolin to the track “Dragonfly’s Castle”
Reports on their new alum:
“Fire on the Rails delivers just as much pleasure as their live shows…a combination of adventurous instrumental arrangements, top-rate musicianship, tight vocals and lyrics with a punch.”
“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
“Their lively, melodic music has a strong American/Latin sentiment, a strong sense of fun and an abundance of sunshine”.
