Track Dogs are four international “madrileños” (Garrett Wall, Dave Mooney, Howard Brown & Robbie K. Jones) 2 Irishmen, an Englishman and an American. Based in Spain, the band name comes from the dark subterranean world of New York’s subway system.
However, there is nothing dark or subterranean about the sound of Track Dogs. Their style is a dynamic joyous fusion of Folk, Latino, Americana & Bluegrass played on multiple acoustic instruments – and a trumpet! … overlaid with delicious four part vocal harmonies.
Their new album, Blind Summits & Hidden Dips, entered the Official Folk Charts at number 22, and 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.
Well-established in Spain and increasingly popular in the UK, they are surprising music lovers everywhere with “Sun-shiny songs thriving on dark themes behind irresistible rhythms.” After a fortuitous invitation to the Costa del Folk Festival in Ibiza they teamed up with Firebrand Music in the UK who also represent folk legends Show of Hands with whom in 2022, they toured the UK and released a 23-track live album, “Dog Show Sessions” culminating in a fabulous guest appearance at the Royal Albert Hall.
Track Dogs are finally getting the recognition they richly deserve.
