Band Fact Sheet: The Sheepdogs 

These long-haired rockers are truly a gem in the rock scene

The Sheepdogs can really jam. As a band with a plethora of influences—greats including Led Zeppelin and The Allman Brothers make up a few of their notable imprints—the group is a solid example of paying homage to the music of the past, while still keeping things original.

The Sheepdogs described the smell of their van to Rolling Stone as being "a combination of weed, cigarettes and old fast-food bags." - SUBMITTED

  • The Sheepdogs described the smell of their van to Rolling Stone as being "a combination of weed, cigarettes and old fast-food bags."

The group's latest album, "Changing Colours," came out in February 2018. The theme of color is a great title for the project, as the music takes shades from a variety of genres, making for one great palette of sound. Realistically, The Sheepdogs have been doing that for years, offering a blend of psych-rock, country, classic rock and more.
