Comprised of two Irishmen, one Englishman and one American, the band came together in 2011 to make their unique brand of acoustic music; a veritable 4x4 of voices and instruments identified for their dynamic fusion of styles including folk, latin, americana, bluegrass and...dare we say it, pop!

"Their lively, melodic music has a strong American/Latin sentiment, a strong sense of fun and an abundance of sunshine" - Folkradio.co.uk

““Groovy” is not a word I often use in this column, but that’s just the adjective I need to describe Madrid-based Irish band the Track Dogs...This is indie-acoustic arranged with a hippie flair.The band’s music is, like the band of ex-pats, an eclectic cultural crossover.” - The Irish Echo, New York

The Madrid-based band whose name derives from the maintenance crews working the New York subway system will release their fourth studio album in March 2018.

The album’s title, 'Kansas City Out Groove', is heavily influenced by their 2017 appearance at Folk Alliance International, the world's largest gathering of folk and acoustic musicians in Kansas City Missouri and the experiences they had there. Also appearing on the album is the Nashville-based virtuoso bluegrass band The Barefoot Movement who the band befriended on their US trip.

With their new album and tour dates through the UK, Spain and Ireland the band aren't planning on resting on their laurels anytime soon and are looking forward to bringing their music to new audiences around the world.

This band turned out to be a total discovery, with vocal harmonies on a par with groups like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, America or the most melodic style of, for example, the Eagles mixed in with the graceful irreverence of The Pogues.”
