Quote, unquote: on rolling with it

"If we were younger and maybe a little bit more naive, but we've been doing this for so long ... we're pretty level-headed," he says. "We've spent so many years getting told 'no' to grants, and 'no' to shows and 'no' to festivals and so to be getting all of these 'yesses' it's more exciting and satisfying than it is we're thinking we're hot s--t. We've worked at this, being a band, for almost seven years now. It's one of those things where you work really hard so when it all comes together, and really exciting stuff is continually starting to happen, it's good. You've got to roll with it."
-- bassist Ryan Gullen of The Sheepdogs, the Saskatoon band now one of only two finalists in the running to be selected in August to be cover subjects of Rolling Stone magazine, on how they're handling the pressure.The other finalists is L.A. singer Leilia Broussard.

These guys are the real deal. I have all three of their albums, and I've seen them perform live. They deserve every bit of recognition they've been getting of late. I hope everyone who reads D.B.'s post goes to RS and votes for them. A band from Saskatoon on the cover of RS? How cool would that be?!

Here's the link to vote: http://www.rollingstone.com/choosethecover
