Not to be confused with the early-'90s Boston power pop trio of the same name (both bands likely named after Tom Waits' pioneering 1985 album), these Raindogs are a folk-pop group from Vancouver, British Columbia. Formed in 1988, the group is led by singer/songwriter Murray Tevlin and also includes singer Elin Sigurdson, keyboardist Bruce McLeod, bassist Brian Ward, saxophonist Dan Burnett, and drummer Dave McKnight. Primarily a live act on the Vancouver coffeehouse circuit, the Raindogs did not make their CD debut until 1998's Strong (For Pat), a benefit EP for the Lymphoma Research Foundation Canada in memory of Tevlin's late friend Patricia Manson.
