Followers of The Sheepdogs should be aware of their love for the Toronto Blue Jays, but few may know frontman Ewan Currie is also a big hoops fan.
The six-foot-three singer, whose group had a number 1 rock single this year, also has some pretty impressive skills on the court and has been following the Toronto Raptors closely.
“The end of the Raptors season was just disappointing,” Currie told CityNews. “For the third straight season the Raptors hit a roadblock in the NBA playoffs: the Cleveland Cavaliers. LeBron James was the difference in the series. The Raptors not having James, it’s a big problem.”
Not only can Currie hit a three-pointer with ease, but he may also have another hit on his hands in the new year. Currie just finished recording his first solo album.
“It’s not super ‘sheepdog-sy.’ It’s something different,” he said. “I don’t want to call it a singer-songwriter album but it’s something people wouldn’t expect from me.”
He is also a bit of a comedian.
When asked if there were any guest performances on the album, Currie had this to say: “LeBron is on the album, Shaquille O’Neal has a few bars on it too.”
The Sheepdogs, who now call Toronto home, just finished a successful European tour and are set to hit the road again in the next few weeks.
