Don't try to pigeonhole Toronto-based quartet, the Dawgs. With a repertoire that spans the full history of rock, and includes a mix of cover and original rock, R&B and pop tunes, the group is not easily categorized.

Formed in the spring of 1994, the Dawgs recorded a three song demo in early 1995. On the strength of their guitar driven sound and tight vocal harmonies, the demo was welcomed by Toronto's radio stations, which began playing the infectious tune, "A Better Man". Aided by a grant from F.A.C.T.O.R. (Foundation to Assists Canadian Talent On Record), the Dawgs recorded their debut album, Are You There, in early 1998. The quartet's sound was enhanced by Hammond B-3 organ and piano player Dave Murphy and harmonica player, Roly Platt.

The Dawgs perform often at Toronto clubs including the Chick'n Deli and the St. Louis Bar & Grill.
