The Sundogs are a Seattle based band formed by Stan Snow and Jed Moffitt. Their second album, Legends In Their Own Minds, includes 11 original songs, each with performance videos, written and recorded in 2018 at Magellan Creek Studios.
Sundogs music is a bit like Tom Petty meets Steely Dan, the Stones meet Leonard Cohen, Lynyrd Skynyrd meets Paul Simon, and so on. Their styles are diverse.
One way to describe them is ‘new music inspired by the days of classic rock and jazz fusion’. And because they are “doing this purely to satisfy the music fan within”, the music has a truth about it, that may be refreshing to many people in this post apocalyptic music business of the 21st century.
Legends In Their Own Minds they may be. But the music and the performance videos are authentic, filmed during the recording sessions with green screens to allow for CGI post production. 90% of what you see is what you hear.
Stan Snow and Jed Moffitt have lived a storied music career. Growing up in the backwater neighborhoods of Fremont, California, they honed their songwriting, production and musicianship to a point where now, a few years later, they are releasing their second album, Legends In Their Own Minds, via Magellan Creek Studios in Seattle, WA. The Sundogs, as they are now called, grew up listening to everything from Miles Davis to Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin to Bob Marley, Tom Petty to Steely Dan, Leonard Cohen to Aaron Copland, Randy Newman to Jackson Browne, Peter Gabriel to the Rolling Stones, John Coltrane to the Beatles, Bob Dylan to the Who.
Stan Snow’s guitar playing has been influenced by Robben Ford, Larry Carlton, Michael Hedges, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Pat Metheny, Steve Morse, Lee Ritenour, Steve Howe, Carlos Santana, Chuck Berry, BB King and Eric Clapton.
Jed Moffitt’s keyboard playing has been influenced by Bill Evans, Bruce Hornsby, Keith Jarrett, McCoy Tyner, Oscar Peterson, Lyle Mays, Bud Powell, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Brad Mehldau, Larry Goldings, Benmont Tench and Roy Bittan.
Snow and Moffitt’s primary goal in music is to satisfy the music fan within. “If it sounds good to us and it’s something that we like listening to over and over, that is the driving force in how we write, arrange, produce and record. We are doing it for the pure joy of it”.
Snow and Moffitt would like to thank so many great musicians and friends who have been helping the Sundogs to make the music happen – Lyle Workman, Mike Stone, Mia Boyle, Chris Symer, Eric Patterson, Jim Sisko, Don Gunn, Ed Brooks, Larry Mahlis, Felicia Dale, Brad Gibson, Artie Huycke, Hans Teuber, Jack Klitzman, Andy Omdahl and many others.
The Sundogs are currently at work on their next album.
