There is a certain excitement that comes when you accomplish something that you have been striving for. It’s part relief, part genuine euphoria, and definitely part panic. Because now that you have reached this well-fought-for goal, what do you do next? The Sheepdogs are a Saskatoon band that have been playing around for approximately seven years. It has been a long hard haul, but the light at the end of the sweaty, small, dark music clubs through the Canadian heartland came quite unexpectedly via Rolling Stone and a whole gaggle of music fans that voted for the band to be on the cover. And it wasn’t only Canadians that boosted them above their competition.
Ewan Currie is a very down-to-earth young man. Even though his band made the cover of Rolling Stone as winners of a recent contest, he appears to be unfazed by all of the hullabaloo. He is soft-spoken, witty and devoted to the band he has called home since 2005: The Sheepdogs, a Canadian rock and roll band with deep 70’s southern roots.
