Still working on that hot first release.



Hailing from Hollywood, CA, childhood friends Monte McConnell on drums, Rob Richman on bass and Ty Stevens on guitar team up with vocalist Trent Durazo to create a special concoction of rock and funk with odd time groove. Collectively, they are responsible for touring, writing, producing and contributing to selling millions of records for some of the biggest names in the music industry.

Monte McConnell’s style of drumming is energetic, intricate and impressive. Being the son of a touring musician the groundwork was laid long before he even picked up a pair of sticks. Monte is a musical sponge – His influences range from James Brown to Afro-Cuban to Led Zeppelin to Jazz. The care and power is evident in every beat, he also can play most triangles.

Rob Richman took a page out of John Lennon’s book and decided to express himself as an artist as well as a musician. Rob’s bass playing ability is intuitive and creative. Seemingly effortless – but far from – To be able to lay a foundation with unwavering time and melodies – Technique and a strong “true north” must be present. Rob’s influences are taken from the greats – Tony Levin, Paul McCartney, Derek Smalls, John Paul Jones and Jaco.

Ty Stevens uses his guitar and his pedal effects with great skill to create his sound. Surprising and appropriate are words that best describe his playing. Ty has the ability to find guitar parts that elevate a song to the next level. Ty’s guitar influences include Hendrix, The Edge and Jimmy Page. 

Trent Durazo, a graduate of the prestigious M.I. music school, takes what he learned and turns it into a very raw, very palpable vocal performance. The lyrical content is not to be overlooked, the care and craft for each song is evident to the listener from word one.

When these four talents combine - they create a rhythmic power infused with intensity, benevolence and the gift of great, memorable songs.

9 Dogs is a force to be reckoned with. Turn it up and lose yourself in their music.
