Song Dogs
Song Dogs
Reminiscent of the Allman Brothers, The Band and Neil Young, the group includes six members, three of whom share the lead vocals, offering lots of variety from track to track on their debut album Wild Country. - Val Haller - New York Times

Song Dogs has gained national media attention for their debut full length album Wild Country, and notoriety for dynamic live performances. The New York Times released two live videos recored at Philadelphia-based Hotbox Studios as well as a new single, "Anyway," in November 2013. The six-piece crafts songs with warm harmonies, scorching guitars, and driving rhythms. WXPN said, "Part Neil Young, part Jackson Browne, Wild Country is a collection of songs blending rock, folk, and blues with a focus on storytelling."
-Julie Miller-WXPN
The Bigness
In The Bigness, uber-melodic folk Americana meets punch-you-in-the-face guitar riffs and bluesy undertones. Think British Invasion guitar work, grounded in a steady folk strum and backing vocals that scream Air, Lennon/McCartney, and The Supremes all at once. 
 
It all started with a serendipitous meeting that led to a collaborative effort between front-woman Kristin Bigness and lead guitarist John Bueno (Bueno and The Goods) that took Kristin's charming folk tunes and gave them some balls.
 
The band's latest album, Surf+Turf combines thesetwo lifetimes of songwriting. It has been called "nothing less than a gem" and these collaborative efforts shows no signs of slowing down.
