Best Use Of Sitar: Dawg Yawp

Best Use Of Sitar

Unique Cincinnati duo Dawg Yawp (Tyler Randall and Rob Keenan) has had quite a year, and things only seem to be looking up from here. Winners of the 2016 Cincinnati Entertainment Award for New Artist of the Year, the twosome’s unique use of electronics and sitar and its imaginative blend of Psychedelia, Folk and Pop (heard on Dawg Yawp’s excellent self-titled debut, released last year on Cincinnati-based Old Flame Records and produced by Cincy music legend Rob Fetters) drew fawning praise from the press and widespread airplay on NPR, including an appearance on the popular syndicated live-music program, World Café. Ride that buzz, dawgs. Dawg Yawp, dawgyawp.com.
