Artist Bio:

Formed in the spring of 2009, the indie-folk quintet Man&Dog tell stories of traveling, friends, and growing up in Baltimore. After settling on the final line-up, they started to make a name for themselves, particularly by being a contestant in the Urban Outfitters "Your Band Here" contest. After claiming a close second place, they began to write more songs, play more shows, and record an EP. Man&Dog began traveling around the northeast once or twice a month and have began to create a fan base there. There are many plans for touring in the future. They released their first EP in November of 2009 when they opened for Bowerbirds. The Tallest Man on Earth, Andrew Bird, and Bowerbirds are just some of the artists that they aspire to write songs like and have influenced them heavily in the writing stages. Man&Dog have just released their first EP and plan to expand the range of their music in the time to come.[Read More]
