The Official Site of Wet Nose Dogs
After a ten plus year music career in Nashville, TN, Philip Ryan moved back home to South Carolina thinking he would never sing again. Philip longed to take the stage again but life’s circumstances prevented his return to stage at every turn. In 2016, Philip met a new friend that refused to let his gift lie dormant.
Brandon Cox forced Philip to sing with him while he played the guitar and they began to cover songs. In 2017, they sparked attention by releasing videos online. Attention began to mount as these videos gained views and likes, and in August of 2017, Philip and Brandon set out in a journey that would create the band Wet Nose Dogs. Brandon decided to make an exit but Philip continued the new founded WetNoseDogs tradition surrounding himself with stellar musicians to provide a top notch show.
Wet Nose Dogs currently features Philip on lead vocals and Max Jenks-Gilbert on rhythm guitars and background vocals. WND is now consistently booked as an acoustic duo, trio - adding in Tyler Potts on drums, quartet adding bass, and as a full band. Wet Nose Dogs is booked up to one year in advance and their momentum continues to build. Their blues take on the genres of Country, Rock, R&B, Southern Rock, Pop, and Hip Hop has broken outside of the traditional box and embody perfectly the genre of eclectic soul with a southern twist.
