BROS “Tell Me”
The brothers debut album Vol. 1 released October 14, 2016 (Dine Alone Records) and daringly expands their sonic range in unexpected and playful ways. Ewan has amassed impressive achievements with The Sheepdogs including a #1 album debut on SoundScan, 4 JUNO wins, and Gold and Platinum certifications (The Sheepdogs + Learn and Burn). Shamus was originally brought into The Sheepdogs as a touring member before attaining full-fledged status. BROS’ sound combines vintage funk and power pop in the spirit of what Sly & The Family Stone once called a whole new thing. Their origins go back to the winter of 2014, just after Ewan and Shamus relocated to Toronto from Saskatoon, and prior to The Sheepdogs recording their most recent album, Future Nostalgia. Once enough material was ready, they joined Thomas D’Arcy at his Toronto studio, Taurus Recording.
