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, bluegrass and…dare we say it, pop!
The Madrid-based band whose name derives from the maintenance crews working the New York subway system will release their fourth studio album “Kansas City Out groove” in March 2018.
Made up of two Irishmen (Dublin & Wicklow), an Englishman (Sheffield) and an American (Vermilion, Ohio) the band are set to release their fourth album, “Kansas City Out Groove”, in March 2018. Inspired in part by their recent career-changing experiences at the Folk Alliance festival in Kansas City in early 2017 the album is a mix of all that makes the Track Dogs sound so special, in healthy doses of Americana, Latin & Folk.
Also appearing on the album is the Nashville-based virtuoso bluegrass band “The Barefoot Movement” who the band met on their US trip.
But don’t just take our word for it:
““Groovy” is not a word I often use in this column, but that’s just the adjective I need to describe Madrid-based Irish band the Track Dogs…Released at the end of last year, the album is rhythmic, soulful and simply cool. This is indie-acoustic arranged with a hippie flair.The band’s music is, like the band of ex-pats, an eclectic cultural crossover.
The Irish Echo, New York
“This band turned out to be a total discovery, with vocal harmonies on a par with groups like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, America or the most melodic style of, for example, the Eagles mixed in with the graceful irreverence of The Pogues.”
Renacer Eléctrico Music Magazine, Spain
“Their lively, melodic music has a strong American/Latin sentiment, a strong sense of fun and an abundance of sunshine”.
“Sumptuous harmonies and toe-tapping rhythm…”
“Superior Americana…joyous stuff”
Hot Press, Ireland
“Never in danger of overstaying their welcome”
