Recorded in Montreal at legendary Mixart Studios in late summer 2020, the band laid down all tracks for the EP live in the sprawling studio with old-school monitors on mammoth 2″ analog tape. No Simple Thing marks the first new music from The Sheepdogs since 2018’s Changing Colours and was again produced by frontman Ewan Currie.
Of the new music, Ewan says “Recording together during the pandemic was like finding a life raft after floating in the ocean for 90 days. We were itching to play music and above all else some human interaction. We missed the brotherly spirit us the five of us have when we get together to jam. I hope folks get a lift from ‘Keep on Loving You.’ In times of trouble or sadness, we can find comfort and solace in what is my personal holy trinity: family, friends and rock ‘n roll.”
Hailing from Saskatoon, The Sheepdogs are one of Canada’s most successful bands amassing a legion of fans worldwide with their rich harmonies, rounded guitar tones and classic rock influenced sound.
