Georgie Jessup and The Philosopher Dogs
“fighting the good fight with peace, love, and understanding”
Georgie Jessup’s songwriting is influenced by everything from old school country to Memphis R&B, placing her music firmly in the “cosmic” Americana Music genre. Her lyrics reflect her outspoken advocacy for animal rights, Native American issues, transgender rights and environmental sanity. The subject of an award winning documentary film, “Woman in A Man’s Suit,” Georgie also has four, well received, CDs available. “Georgie sings from the heart, like a rare flower in a wilderness,” says blues diva Candye Kane. “She speaks to us about the deepest issues. Issues that all of us should care about, but so many of us pretend don’t affect us.”
Starting out in music as a percussionist and lead vocalist, Brian McQuade was inspired to take up guitar after experiencing the original Woodstock in 1969. He quit his summer job and bought a used guitar at Ted’s Music for $20.00. He played in a raft of unknown local bands, gradually working towards becoming a lead guitarist like his heroes; Eric Clapton, Leslie West, and Waddy Wachtel.
In addition to playing with The Philosopher Dogs, Brian also performs with his girlfriend, singer and percussionist Helene Cooper, in the acoustic duo, Dharma Bums. He is also a singer and a songwriter.
