Biography

Master & Dog ( Formerly John, Shelly & the Creatures) formed in 2007. The bands original name, John, Shelly and the Creatures came from a chance meeting with two Irish twins named John and Shelly. It’s a long story. The band recently changed their name to Master & Dog for various reasons, the name originating from one of the bands favourite songs “Master & Dog” by Quasi.

Master & Dog are made up of band members: Kevin Carlisle (Drums, percussion & vox), Philip Watts d’Alton (guitar, vox, keys, bass, mandolin), Ger Gormley (bass, vox, guitar, mandolin, keys) and Walter (guitar, vox, keys, mandolin and drums). They are influenced by a wide variety of genres and are unafraid to mix things up when it comes to recording and playing live. ‘With a dazzling array of instruments and songwriting that has been fine-tuned to a striking degree, the foursome’s laidback sound, coupled with gritty lyrics, recalls The Lemonheads’ (Irish Times) and fellow Northern band Snow Patrol. ‘Rather than Knock you off your seat with rambunctious riffs or profound ideas, this band are just effortlessly monumental’ and maintain a sense of intrigue whilst being immediately powerful and engaging. The stunning graceful and tender effort - LONG MAY YOU REIGN- reads like a summers day smile, whilst their debut album DINOSAUR, is a whole actors handbook of facial expressions (AU Magazine).
