Police Dog Hogan get back on the road with a short tour during February and March 2018. With 300 plus gigs already under their belts and a highly successful fourth album, Wild By The Side Of The Road, released in 2017 this band carries on delivering their own brand of Country, Americana tinged rock to enthusiastic audiences, seamlessly incorporating raucous cacophonies to melancholic tributes and everything in between.
Police Dog Hogan, first formed in 2009, has evolved over the years into a tight-knit seven-piece band combining guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, accordion, trumpet, keyboards, bass and drums.
In 2014 Police Dog Hogan were one of only three UK bands invited to Nashville to perform at the prestigious Americana Music Association Awards, where DJ Bob Harris – in town for the awards – snapped them up for a recording that has become one of the most-watched YouTube videos on his Under The Apple Tree Sessions channel. In 2015 they made a showcase appearance on Harris’s Radio 2 show. The single from the album Devon Brigade has been nominated for UK Song of the Year in theAmericana Music Association awards 2018.
The band has repeatedly been offered headline and other spots on the main stages of numerous key festivals – among many others, they have been asked back an unprecedented three times to Larmer Tree, twice to Kendal Calling and Port Eliot, and three times to Cornbury. In 2016 they appeared at Glastonbury for the first time, on the Avalon stage.
The band regularly plays to sell-out audiences up and down the country. They’ve become a serious and ambitious musical venture that marries a devotion to touring and the presentation of consummate live performances with James Studholme’s dedication to song writing and recording.
