The Sheepdogs are a Canadian rock band formed in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in 2006. The group consists of lead singer and guitarist Ewan Currie, lead guitarist Jimmy Bowskill, bass guitarist Ryan Gullen, drummer Sam Corbett, and Shamus Currie, brother of Ewan, playing trombone, keyboards, tambourine, and electric guitar. The Sheepdogs became the first unsigned band to make the cover of Rolling Stone in 2011 and have since grown to popularity in Canada and the United States.
Frontman Ewan Currie describes the band's retro, guitar-driven blues-rock style as "pure, simple, good-time music". Their distinctive sound has been called the "Guitar-mony" because of the use of harmony in guitar solos and vocals. Currie often credits groups Sly and the Family Stone, Humble Pie, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and The Allman Brothers Band as influences on his style.
The Sheepdogs tour frequently between recordings, and have played at a number of large festivals including South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, Edgefest in Toronto, and Ottawa's Bluesfest and CityFolk Festival.
