The best kept secret in music

Dog Bone Sanctuary is better than all the hype. Seriously. These guys are fantastic, and they are really nice guys to boot. The music is super vibey. Awesome set, if they're playing near you, don't be retarded, go see them! - James Bumgarner


DBS hits the stage, and I knew after 30 seconds into their set that this was a force to be reckoned with. Rane is a KILLER front man and Paul's leads are beautiful. (seriously...I'm not just saying that)
His playing is just downright solid. I was impressed with him in the
Static Bloom days, and am equally impressed today. Kevin and Clint form the rhythm section from Hell. The songs were very engaging and well written, which not a whole lot of bands can pull off anymore. Considering how good each of the bands were that the 4 members respectively came from, I feel that "all-star band" is an appropriate description for DBS. You've got the cream of the crop that has joined forces to create this killer band. I’d definitely go out of my way to see them again. - Joe Hill


Rane is most definitely one of the best front men in Seattle. Rane not only can sing and play guitar, but he has that charisma that sets him apart. There is almost like an aura about him. Extremely engaging and captivating. - Karen Mattheson


DBS freaking rules! I knew they had something special, but damn! Seeing you on stage performing a set was...WOW. No doubt, there are four unbelievable talents in this band. This band is going to the top and will stay there. Simply unbelievable. - XTRM Promotions

Bio

Keeping the music of Dog Bone Sanctuary under cellophane or trapped in a clear plastic box is a veritable sin. Thankfully, the Seattle-based DBS recently allowed their music to run riot on us by launching a CD that contains some of the most original works heard in quite some time. The songs cover the very essence of being a human in some very inhumane situations, self-inflicted or otherwise. It is about ironic struggle and our gritty nature. It is about comparing and combining the gory with the spirited. And in my opinion, it’s about time. Waiting for even a taste of Dog Bone Sanctuary was itself an exercise in suffering. Thankfully, the wait is over. Lead singer Rane Stone’s intense vocals and guitar are melded with a tight and dynamic lead guitar, played by Paul Souyoultzis, and a solid rhythm section in Kevin Jacober’s bass and Clint Clark’s drums. The music has power but uses variety and verse skillfully rather than beating you to death with unnecessary and frivolous crap that most bands use to get your attention. Smoke and mirrors, there are none, but vivid imagery is abundant in the lyrics. Stone’s performance lays the band’s guts out on the table while making you anticipate the view. Dog Bone Sanctuary is "committed". I do not mean in the sense that they are dedicated to their craft; I mean in the sense that there is no hesitation or insecurity whatsoever, in either the music or the message. Both the words and music are deliberate, confident and secure. DBS is definitely a breath of fresh air in an industry of such uncertainty.
