The Sheepdogs Return With Straight Ahead Non-Bummer Pandemic Rock ‘n’ Roll Because it Saved Them—and Maybe it will Save you, too

Hailing from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the Sheepdogs are a hardworking, hard-living, straight up rock ‘n’ roll band who return with Outta Sight, the grooviest, simplest, most penetrating album of their career. Recorded during the pandemic the band—Ewan Currie, Ryan Gullen, Sam Corbett, Jimmy Bowskill and Shamus Currie—were, like the rest of us, confused, cast ashore, and feeling isolated during COVID. Their response was to do what came most naturally to them: making stripped-down rock ‘n’ roll.

“It’s a weird world. Everybody stuck in place, overthinking absolutely everything. We wanted to avoid all that—just get in the room, plug in your guitar and go. So that’s what we did,” says singer Ewan Currie, who cut most of the album’s tracks in three takes. “Themes like optimism in the face of adversity, standing tall and staying strong, knowing that better times are around the corner kept coming through when making the record and it felt really damned good to play.”

“Rock ‘n’ Roll is about cheering us up. Simple as that,” says Currie. “We hope our music does the same for the listeners at a time where things still can feel very tough. There’s no greater truth than rock ‘n’ roll.”
