Track Dogs


Track Dogs 'Serenity Sessions'

Track Dogs are a Madrid-based acoustic-folk band with members from
Ireland, England and the USA.
 
Garrett Wall from Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin, Ireland - Vocals/Guitar/Ukulele/Piano
Dave Mooney from Bray, Co Wicklow, Ireland – Vocals/Bass/Ukulele/Mandolin
Howard Brown Sheffield, UK-- /Vocals/Percussion /Trumpet/ Cajón/Ukulele
Robbie K Jones from Vermillion, Ohio, USA – Vocals/Cajón/Banjo/  


These particular dogs started life back in the autumn of 2006, under the name of The Garrett Wall Band. The starting line-up was simple but effective; guitar, bass, trumpet and cajón.  They wanted a clean sound that would work as easily in someone's living room as it would on the world's stages.

Garrett Wall Band 'Sky Pointing'

They cut their “live” teeth playing twenty six shows in seven days at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and released their debut album “Sky Pointing” shortly after in 2007. Tours in Ireland and Spain followed and the relative media in both countries started to take note. They followed this up with the album “Hands & Imperfections” in 2009.

When the time came to release their third studio album they realized a name change was vital. It was important the band be considered for what it was; a band. Not wanting to be considered a singer songwriter plus backing musicians any longer they opted (after an exhaustive search) for the name Track Dogs which comes from the maintenance teams who work the New York subway. These close-knit teams work while the trains are circulating and thus need to look our for each other at all times. What better name for a group that musically did just that!  

All Tracks 'Track Dogs'

Thus the simply titled “Track Dogs” was released in 2011 and from this moment things began to change for the band. The use of harmonies became a signature sound for them and they also expanded the line-up to include banjo & ukulele. Hailing from Ireland, the UK and the USA, the four expats set up their own label, Mondegreen Records, to handle all releases and the licensing of their music, understanding the importance of control over their recordings.

Track Dogs 'All Roads'

In 2013 the band was picked to perform as part of the Sounds From Spain platform at SXSW in Austin, Texas. In the same year they were also selected for Girando Por Salas (GPS), an important incentive for touring bands in Spain. With the release of their fourth album “All Roads”, the group's unique sound was even more rounded and defined.

Track dogs 'Serenity Sessions'With their new album “Serenity Sessions”, named for the studio where they had recorded the bulk of their albums, the band has finally reached a point where the energy and power of their live sound is properly reflected in their recordings. With the addition of a richer production to their sound, and collaborations with artists such as El Twanguero this new body of work reflects the perfect mix of styles which defines what Track Dogs are all about.
