Brothers Lee and Will Haraway formed The Sundogs in Atlanta, GA in the early 2000s and
quickly earned attention for the melodic Americana Rock and Roll sound of their records and
especially for their high-energy live shows.
The Sundogs released “BB Gun Days” in 2004, “Instrument of Change” in 2007 and “Cut &
Run” in 2015, which was the first release from The Sundogs to also feature songs from co-
lead guitarist Jon Harris, former leader of Jon Harris and the Sin Hounds.
Having long been compared to Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, the band started performing
The Sundogs Present ‘The Tom Petty Show’ in 2008 and have played a complete Petty
tribute every December thereafter at Smith’s Olde Bar in Atlanta.
The six-piece lineup also includes renowned Atlanta gunslinger Benji Shanks, ace Hammond
keyboardist Kevin Thomas and drummer Will Groth. Collectively, The Sundogs have shared
stages with Jason Isbell, Zac Brown Band, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring,
Widespread Panic, Sugarland, Shawn Mullins, The Wailers, Col. Bruce Hampton,
The BoDeans, Burning Spear, Gatemouth Brown, Chuck Leavell, Bill Kreuztman, Blackberry
Smoke, Black Joe Lewis, Bloodkin, Lucero, The Wood Bros. and Ike Stubblefield.
In May of 2017, the Haraway Brothers released a solo (duo?) record, “The Haraway Brothers
Wish You Love & Luck in the World” with Shanks producing from Kristian Bush’s Projector
Room Studios in Decatur, Ga. In 2018, The Sundogs will release “The Sundogs’ Greatest B-
Sides” featuring 10 of their most-loved songs in their career.
You can find all music from The Sundogs and The Haraway Brothers on iTunes and your
favorite music streaming service.
Pony League has a knack for distilling real life moments into shimmering compositions stacked with a lush blend of piano and guitars, a skill they’ve put on display across the country. Notable performances include a recent concert on a moving plane for Southwest Airlines, and more recently at Red Rocks Amphitheater opening for The Fray.
The band draws a wealth of inspiration from their home state, though Billboard says their "warm, retro-acoustic sound feels more like California than Georgia.“ A fitting description of a band that’s been likened to Jackson Browne and Dawes.
”We’re an Americana band in that our songs are reflections of our surroundings and experiences,” says lead guitarist, Charlie Mills.
They’re second album, A Picture of Your Family, is out now on local Atlanta label Bear Kids Recordings.
“It’s an exploration of human perseverance in the face of such obstacles as extreme pressure, anxiety and depression,” singer Gus Fernandez explains, keeping in theme with 2016’s “Harder Than A Rick Ankiel,” which was inspired by the hard-luck story of a pitcher-turned-batter for The Atlanta Braves.
Substream Magazine said about the upcoming album’s title track,
“It’s one of those songs you can’t stop listening to because you love the fact that you feel something when you’re listening to it. You’re taken out of your own head, the negativity of real life slips away, and in a true Walking In Memphis kind of way– you can’t help but feel a little somber but somehow full of joy.”
The 11 songs on the forthcoming album showcase a tightly knit group of friends and musicians who have steadily evolved since their 2014 debut, Fresh Start. You can now preview the title track below!
