Enjoy FREE Live Music with Wet Nose Dogs on June 29th, 2019.
After a ten plus year music career in Nashville, TN, Philip Calder moved back home to South Carolina thinking he would never sing again. Philip longed to take the stage again but life’s circumstances prevented his return to stage at every turn. In 2016, Philip met a new friend that refused to let his gift lie dormant.
Brandon Cox forced Philip to sing with him while he played the guitar and they began to cover songs. In 2017, they sparked attention by releasing videos online. Attention began to mount as these videos gained views and likes, and in August of 2017, Philip and Brandon set out in a journey that would create the band Wet Nose Dogs. Brandon made a brief exit and Philip contacted a childhood friend, Evan Lee, who had grown into a prominent electric/acoustic guitarist. They decided to begin rehearsing and playing shows.
As with all things, Wet Nose Dogs has come full circle with Brandon Cox back in the fold with Philip on lead vocals. WND is now consistently booked as a duo with Philip and Cory Barrentine, trio – adding in Tylerr Rasberry on drums, and as a full band featuring Brandon on rhythm guitar, and Cory on bass guitar. Their blues take on the genres of Country, Rock, R&B, Southern Rock, Pop, and Hip Hop has broken outside of the traditional box and embody perfectly the genre of eclectic soul with a southern twist.
