In Dog's Country
'In Dog's Country' is a humorous indie pop/rock musical that tells the story of two dogs, a cat, a squirrel, and their relationship to The Man. Original music by veteran songwriter and recording artist Billy Dechand. Cast includes musicians Ruth Keating and Matt Sutton of Brooklyn's The Malarkies and Rose Thomson, formerly of Babe the Blue Ox. The Man is played by the Bronx's own Alex Zimmer. This is not your grandma's Broadway musical. 'In Dog's Country' mixes the rawness of indie pop with smart songwriting that spans gentle whispers with a satisfying portion of howling. Humor abounds, but there are dark themes lurking in the depths as well, a trademark paradox in much of Billy's work. So close your eyes and listen. If you're not careful, you find yourself In Dog's Country.
