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 albumWild 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."

Grip of the Gods
Grip of the Gods is a modern-alt/rock/indie rock power-trio hailing from Philadelphia, PA, US. The band formed loosely around late 2009-early 2010, initially under the working name Walking in Monologues. As the utmost priority of the band was creating a unique style and brand of rock, nearly the entire first year of the project was devoted to this effort (though a handful of live performances took place in various locations). Through the course of this process and moving toward 2011, Grip of the Gods released two "rough" EPs: a 3-track entitled Walking in Monologues and a 5-track entitled Destination of Man. As a result of these releases, 2011-2012 saw a huge increase in live performances, with shows in many East Coast cities, and a handful of short national tours. During this time, Grip of the Gods further solidified their sound, and in June 2012 finally headed into a high-quality studio (Forge Recording Studios, Oreland, PA) to create what they consider to be their first professional release; a 6-track EP titled Take (produced by Steven LaFashia and mastered by UE Nastasi at Sterling Sound, NYC), which plays much more like an album than an EP, and capitalizes on the creative niche that they've established.
Grip of the Gods is well underway with material for their first full-length, and hope to begin recording prior to Fall of this year. Meanwhile, they are currently lining up national tour dates for summer 2013 to capitalize on their latest release, Take, which has already been very well-received by existing fans and has served immensely in reaching a much larger audience. 2013 is sure to be a massive year for this promising, devoted rock-trio.
The Parachuting Apostles
What do you get when you mix the deepest hard rock cuts of the nineties, the anthemic drive of british alt-rock with a dash of swagger & seventies soul?
The Parachuting Apostles.
