After a summer full of shows to the east coast and back with the likes of July Talk, Zeus, Sam Roberts, Arkells and more, Sam Cash & The Romantic Dogs are returning to The Horseshoe Tavern on September 9 with Ferraro and fans can head over to Exclaim! to win tickets. To celebrate the Toronto band are revealing a live performance video of Carole King’s “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” “I like the idea of doing covers that people don’t normally do, and that audiences wouldn’t expect, “explains Cash. “This song often gets stuck in my head—and there’s just so much power in a room full of both men and women shouting “you make me feel like a natural woman”, at the top of their lungs.”
Out now on Cameron House Records, Cash’s latest record Tongue-In-Cheek Vows perfectly captures that moment when a young artist and his cohorts find their collective voice and suddenly realize that there are no limits to what they can accomplish together. The album is Cash’ third album and the second with the Romantic Dogs. It follows the group’s acclaimed 2013 debut, Stand Together, Fall Together, an album that earned more attention than even Cash was hoping for, given how spontaneously it was made. While the rambunctiousness that drew fans and critics to that album is on full display, Cash chose to take more time to develop Tongue-In-Cheek Vows. Working in tandem with producer and bona fide Canadian alt-rock legend Ian Blurton (Change Of Heart, C’Mon, Public Animal), Cash and the Dogs have served up 11 tracks brimming with lyrics as razor-sharp as the performances driving them. Those who have followed Cash’s development to this point are sure to be stunned by the self-awareness and insight into the human condition embedded in songs like the album’s first focus track “Tossing & Turning” as well as “That Was The Summer” and “Carmen,” from which the album’s title was drawn.
Those who have been around long enough will undoubtedly hear echoes of Cash’s father Andrew Cash, part of Toronto’s original punk rock community and later one of Canada’s most respected singer-songwriters. Yet, from the time Sam launched his own music career in his late teens, he’s forged his own uncompromising path toward establishing a name within the Toronto underground rock scene.
