Sundogs “Legends In Their Own Minds” Album Release

Written by Samantha Simmonds-Ronceros

Classic American rock, an homage to the great bands of the 70s and 80s, musical masters like Steely Dan, Leonard Cohen and Led Zeppelin.  The Seattle-based Sundogs are making the music that they love. 

It’s wonderful to hear music played by career musicians with a passion for their art.  These songs are crafted and thoughtful, catchy and complex.  The simplicity of the melodies belays the depth of the lyrics.

They have the irony of a Leonard Cohen record and the sarcasm of Tom Petty with a little jazz mixed in, compliments of Steely Dan.  Each song takes us in a different direction, and there are a lot of songs -12! Which takes me back to when proper albums really existed and liner notes where biblical in length.

This a great album, whimsical and warmly retrospective.  It’s also a video album, with a lot of humor and creativity. These guys work hard that’s for sure!!

Musicians:

Stan Snow: Songwriter, Producer, Vocals and Guitars, etc…

Jed Moffitt: Songwriter, Co-Producer, Vocals and Keyboards
