If "The National” and “Big Thief” had a puppy, it would rightfully be named, Friend Dog. Friend Dog was born in the rusted out cage of the rural midwest and is currently residing in Minneapolis, MN. This salt of the earth trio is comprised of lead singer and guitar player, Vincenzio Donatelle, on bass and harmonies, Lauren Anderson, and on drums, Nate LeBrun. Their unique Americana sound combines soulfully rugged vocals with a heavy-hitting rhythm section and incredibly vulnerable lyrics. All that paired with catchy melodies and an honest high-energy delivery will trick you into smiling and crying all at once.
Friend Dog is set to release their debut full-length record entitled “Before The End” on June 9th, 2023. Every song on the record highlights contemporary journeys and all the intense joys and challenges of fatherhood and being a husband in this day and age. These three seasoned pros have been cutting their teeth in other projects for years and are predicted to make some serious waves.
