“…Nothing is destroyed, everything is transformed.”
The four members of the Garrett Wall Band will be known from 2011 onwards as
The band; Garrett Wall, Dave Mooney, Howard Brown and Robbie K. Jones have been working away in Serenity Studios, Madrid on their third studio album – the first release under the new name, Track Dogs.
Garrett Wall says : “Guys who work the New York city metro at night doing maintenance on the tracks are called ‘Track Dogs’.”
Why the change?
The GWB feel they have moved on from being a singer songwriter + band to become Track Dogs, a group whose four years working together from their base in Madrid has lead them to developing a very distinctive and unique sound where each element is as important as the other but overall being much more than the sum of the parts.
“We’ve always wanted to make the most of Garrett’s previous work, but as he always said himself from the beginning, the dynamic has gone from being a singer and band to being a group where each member brings something individual to the table and creates a sepcific sound” – R K. Jones
“From day one this line-up of cajón, trumpet, guitar and bass has influenced the direction and overall feel of the songs I write” – G Wall
Since then the role of each one of the four in the band has evolved. Four part harmonies have become the order of the day in many of the new songs and the new album sees first time compositions from Robbie, Dave and Howard. At the same time the band continue to be the same four people as always in terms of their music and dedication to their fans. Garrett is still the main songwriter in the band, they have returned to work with producer Josh Tampico for the next album and they continue to use their highly distinctive logo of the 4 instruments.
2011 will see the Track Dogs hit the ground running with the release of their single “Move A Mountain” in early February to be followed by the album in March. The new year will also see them embark on a highly ambitious tour of all 52 provinces and autonomous regions of Spain plus a trip to the US for their first series of dates their in support of their debut album “Sky Pointing” which was released in October on NY label Cosmic Trigger.
