To Whom It May Concern:

On Saturday April 30th United Way of Yuma County held its’ annual Music Fest. We had the privilege of having a band from the Phoenix area to kick off our event. Downward Dog was absolutely incredible. When we decided to venture outside of the Yuma area to find a band, we never expected to find the talent that was found in this band. The audience was blown away by the Downward Dogs’ ability to capture the attention of all present. To this day we still have individuals from the community calling or writing to ask when they will grace one of our events to come.
The professionalism, personality and overall talent of this band are the best the Yuma community and myself have ever seen. We would be honored for this band to participate in a future event. United Way of Yuma County felt this letter necessary to provide you with feedback on possibly the greatest band in Phoenix. Please pass this reflection on to the necessary individuals’ that it may benefit. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Once again thank you for giving Yuma the opportunity to experience the highest level of talent in a band thus far.

Sincerely,

Allyson Parsons

Downward Dog
Time Marches On
By: Robert Tuozzo

This female fronted, Phoenix- based quartet hits a grand slam with their debut release “Time Marches On,” which is also the title of the first single from this “ALL HIT” 10 track CD produced by Michael Beck and Downward Dog. Julia Bogen’s vocals are second to none and the band is at the top of their game in their early, formative years. It’s pure rock with heart & determination. The band is steady, creative and holds the bottom up on every track. The harmonies are perfect and brightly placed. The CD comes complete with pull out lyric booklet (this was a great bonus as the lyrics are fantastic). Add this CD to your collection and play list immediately.

Bio

Phoenix's Downward Dog is complex, hard-hitting rock with searing, soulful vocals and well-crafted songs that run the gamut from unbridled fury to introspective lyrical melodies to scathingly critical social commentaries. Their sound lies somewhere between rock/pop/punk-influenced acts like Evanescence and No Doubt and harder bands like Perfect Circle, Incubus and Linkin' Park -- with a little Allanis and Tori Amos tossed in for good measure. Original, powerful, thought-provoking and energetic, this female-fronted quartet stands out in a Valley that is experiencing a strong second wave of worthy breakthroughs to the national scene and is finding a unique and authentic musical voice.

Downward Dog has been privileged to perform before thousands appearing at the Heber/Overgaard Independence Day Festivals in 2002 and 2003, and as featured performers at the PF Chang Rock N Roll Marathon in 2004 and 2005. They have played for hordes of Spring Breakers in Rocky Point, Mexico and they regularly take part in statewide music events and charity fundraisers, including the 12th Annual United Way Music Festival, GoGirls Music Fest for Music Cares, Red White & Blues Festival to support Homes For Our Troops, The Veterans Day Concert for Red Cross following 9/11, the Earth Mother Mind Jam 14 and Desert Divas and Music for a Cure to benefit breast cancer research.

Based on the strength of the music, listener feedback and overwhelming support of Downward Dog's single, "Time Marches On," Internet radio station www.KALTAZ.com declared them winners of the Battle of the Bands and have since added a second track "Riptide" to regular rotation. Other stations that have featured the band include; KUPD FM, KEDJ FM, KZON FM, KPHN AM, and KMUD FM in Humboldt CA.

The band has achieved world-wide exposure with a feature article and review in New-York based 22nd Century Rock Magazine who proclaimed "Downward Dog is pure rock with heart and determination".. Julia Bogen's vocals are second to none."

Their debut release "Time Marches On" ia available at the Apple Music Store (iTunes) and msnmusic.com.
