“Sweet Little Bloodhound” – Sweet Little Bloodhound
New England based trio formerly known as the Devlin Miles Band, you can catch this band on the rise almost weekly at Putnam’s Unplugged in Brooklyn (far from LA), but their unmistakably Southern soul and accomplished LA session type chops make them a great band to watch. Check out their very Southern contemporary take on Fleetwood Mac’s “Gold Dust Woman”.

Sweet Little Bloodhound are an exceptional soulful rock sound/band that hail stateside out of Greenfield, Massachusetts, Northeast. They really bring a sensationally thrilling melodically soulful rock n’ roll charm with genre element diversity inclusions of rock, country, blues/bluesrock, folk and alternative rock orbits. The overall musicianship was swimming with gorgeous glows and especially was partial to their usage of phenomenal blues/jazzy keys, soaring souther rock n’ roll guitar riff skies and female vocals that were honest & thriving in quality and talent. They are definitely a ‘now’ up and coming independent band. These rockers should really stimulate the ear worlds of good music appreciators everywhere, ‘class band’ all the way!
Sweet Little Bloodhound will be very admirable listening to fans of: Alison Krauss and Union Station, Roseanne Cash, Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, KT Tunstall.
Genre: Soulful Rock Music
From: Greenfield, Massachusetts, U.S.A.

It has been an exciting undertaking to continue to develop a music scene in Clinton Hill/Fort Greene Brooklyn at Putnam’s Unplugged. To learn about the booking process from the venues prospective, but also knowing the artists perspective. It has been helpful in so many ways and also helping Sweet Little Bloodhound in launching a weekly podcast and the launch of our new album. There has been a strong learning curve and with aggressive deadlines we have had to maneuver to stay on track and keep ahead of the game. This week’s featured artist- The Mona Dahls came by for an interview before their show and we got to speak with them about their influences as a band and their favorite indie artists. We also got into their pockets and figured out what their purpose is… we hope you enjoy the podcast. Let us know what you think, we are planting the seeds all over the internet. You can find the podcast on our website and on these other sites.
YouTube (includes slides of performance and PR shots of The Mona Dahls)
All are easy to share, so be sure to spread the word and keep sending your favorite indie artists our way. We have a lot of exciting plans about where we will be moving the SLB Trailer soon, so keep checking back.
6 episodes in and learning every episode. This episode we learned the importance of microphone stability, which might seem obvious, but it wasn’t when we were recording, however it became evidently clear on editing as we shared 2 mics between 3 people and there was a lot of mic noise. Also on previous episodes we were able to include live clips from the performances, but we had sound level issues on the recording – not clear if it was because both Cal and Pete used pedals and EQ’d themselves or if our levels were not adjusted from the mixing board, therefore we included a little SLB Don’t Take It Personal Clip.
