Download the New EP “Cut & Run”

Cut & RunCut & Run by The Sundogs

The Cut & Run EP features all new original tunes written by Lee, Will and Jon, with support from all your favorite Sundogs, including world-traveling rock star Benji Shanks, who also produced three of the tracks with Vic Stafford. KT and Jon grabbed the controls on “..Heaven.” We recorded it at Southern Tracks, the same studios where the Black Crowes (Southern Harmony), Bruce Springsteen (Magic) and Pearl Jam (Backspacer–Jeff Ament was robbed there!) recorded some of their best works.

Here’s what a couple of nice folks have said about it:

Cut & Run is a five song EP that gives listeners more of what the band does best…Part of what makes the Sundogs’ music so enjoyable is how they work as one. By sharing time on lead, embracing backing vocals and switching instruments the band creates a cohesive sound built around jangly guitars, honest lyrics and great melodies . Cut & Run may only be 5 songs but it shows what the band is capable of. The songs offer up solid lyrics that will get listeners singing along as well as catchy melodies that are impossible not to enjoy.” — Chris Martin, Atlanta Examiner

“The Sundogs take another step forward with ‘Cut & Run’,with lyrics that cut right to the heart of life, honest stories and the positive outlook of the beauty of the comeback, theunderdog and coming out ahead. And the full integration of Jon Harris’ songwriting with the Haraway brothers evokes The Band, Wilco or Tom Petty– and I’d swear that ‘Ragged & Frayed’ is an Exile on Main Street outtake.” – Harry McNeil

VistaPoster-v2One of our favorite occasional shows, the ROCK N ROLL SPECTACULAR is the night for us to roll all of the rifftastic, fist pumping rock songs from our 17 years of rocking, along with some choice covers from the bands that have inspired us. We always invite some friends, and this year our buddies from The Beggars’ Guild will join us at one of our new favorite places, the beautiful Vista Room in the Oak Grove neighborhood of Decatur. It connects to Napoleon’s where you can get some great eats before the ROCK SHOW.

Charlie MarsCharlie Mars, “Beach Town”: I know I wrote this last month when talking about Michael McDermott, but one of the many cool things about 30A Songwriters was connecting with the other artists, especially our old buddy Charlie Mars. Charlie’s a Mississippian, and we’ve known him for 20 years, going back to when he got Matt Ulmer to quit Ole Miss and join the Charlie Mars Band. Later, after that band called it quits, Matt- along with Charlie’s drummer Andrew Hanmer, ended up joining up with us for two albums, as you may know. Charlie became a solo artist, and financed his first solo record after winning $26K in Biloxi (or Tunica? Can’t recall– true story though) which jump started a career that’s taken him all kinds of cool places.We ran into him at the artist party at 30A, caught one of his shows and he was flat-out amazing. Funny (check out Dream Kitchen) and self deprecating, he had a room of 300 hanging on every note and joke. In April, he put out his best record yet, Beach Town, and he’ll be playing Eddie’s Attic on Thursday night 6/14. Join us, we’ll be there cheering him on.

Scott1-e1511994190193RIP, Scott Hutchison, Frightened Rabbit: Scott was the lead singer and songwriter for Frightened Rabbit, a very cool band from Scotland that we started listening to a few years ago. Scott took his own life last month after a lifelong struggle with depression, and his willingness to share his open, raw pain is sadly- tragically- part of what made his songs so relatable to so many people. His last message to the world was “Be so good to everyone you love….Please, hug your loved ones.” Here’s his elegy, “Floating in the Forth,” from their great album Midnight Organ Fight. I’m not alone in wishing he was still here making music and hugging his loved ones. RIP, Scott.

May Ray of Light: The Haraway Brothers w/ Chris Stalcup, 5/12 at Southbound

May 12- The Haraway Brothers at Southbound w/ special guest Chris Stalcup

Haraway Bros Southbound Poster draft 1Last May 5 (Lee’s birthday!) we released “The Haraway Brothers Wish You Love & Luck in the World”, the most personal work of songs we’d ever released. And it worked! It sold and streamed well, we did a killer release show at Vista, got some nice mentions in the music rags (#20 on AAA’s best of 2017!) and helped us get into the 30A Songwriter’s Festival last January, the most fun week we’ve had playing music. We’d so rarely gotten to do the songwriter listening room shows—even our Vista release was a rocker—and the change of pace was a blast for us and the folks that kept showing up. So—to celebrate that anniversary, we’re going to do one of those shows here in the ATL.

On May 12 at Southbound (http://www.southboundatl.com/) in Atlanta, we’ll do an intimate show with only 55 tickets available and our great friend Chris Stalcup opening things up. Stories, jokes, tunes, the whole bit. We think you’ll love it. Doors open at 6:30–Southbound has killer food downstairs—and then Chris starts up at 6:30. We’ll do our thing at 7:30. Join us– here’s the record, sing along!

Will on WSID Sid Mashburn Vinyl-Only Radio Show, Wed. 5/9, AM 1690, 5 PM

RadioWe’re getting stylish on Wednesday 5/9, as Will Haraway will be a guest on the Sid Mashburn Radio Hour (WSID), a vinyl-only radio show on Atlanta’s Voice of the Arts, AM 1690. The Sid Mashburn Radio Hour (WSID) airs during drive time, 5pm-6pm.

We love Sid’s store and his taste (one of his shirts is on the cover of “The Haraway Brothers Wish You Love & Luck in the World” ) so we’ll hang out and play records for an hour. Tune in on your way home from work.

  • 39456404310_6397d9e51dOur good friends from Blackberry Smoke released their best work, “Find a Light” earlier in the month, produced by Charlie Starr and….. Benji Shanks, w/ Tom Tapley engineering (and also producing, let’s be honest.) They did quite a bit of the work over at the fabulous Projector Room in Decatur, where we recorded ““The Haraway Brothers Wish You Love & Luck in the World.” They even had Robert Randolph play his pedal steel overdubs for “I’ll Keep Ramblin” in the same exact spot as Lee’s pedal steel (it’s the sweet spot in the room.) In addition to Mr. Randolph, The Wood Brothers sing as well on “Mother Mountain” and Amanda Shires sings on “Let Me Down Easy” (Benji adds dobro on that one too.) We’re just bursting with pride for all of these guys and I’m sure we aren’t the only ones. This changes daily, but the current favorite is “I’ve Got this Song.”
  • Image result for michael mcdermott out from underOne of the many cool things about that whole 30A Experience was meeting other   artists from across the country. At our Saturday gig at The Rep, Michael McDermott, from Chicago, played right after us as a duo with his wife Heather on fiddle. We all hit it off and we ended up staying for their whole set, which was excellent. He just put out his thirteenth (!) album, “Out from Under” last week, and y’all should check it out. My favorite is “Cal-Sag Road”, which is spooky as shit.
  • Thanks to everyone who bought or listened to the record in the last year. Hope to see ya on May 12.
