Track Dogs are a Madrid-based acoustic-folk band with
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
as it would on the world's stages.
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.
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

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.
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.
