The Loaded Dog

from the The Loaded Dog album.

Heywood & Moore – The Loaded Dog

NSW based alternative country artists - Dawn Moore and Brian Heywood - combine the storytelling of traditional country and the power of edgy roots / rockabilly instrumentation.

Brian and Dawn have been making quite a splash in Australia and the UK with three tracks in the Country Tracks Top 40 (“Turn the key”, “Walkin’ after midnight” and “Headin’ home (for Christmas)”. Their latest track – The Loaded Dog – is a homage to Henry Lawson’s classic short story of the same name.

The duo’s signature sound of rich harmonies has attracted the praise of the likes of Larry Weiss (Rhinestone Cowboy), Seymour Stein (Warner Music) and they were awarded “Best Americana Song” by The Akademia in May 2018 for the title track of their album – Goodbye Yesterday.
