A rock groove blended with pop, blues and sprinklings of country. Diverse female vocals that echoe Bonnie Raitt & Sheryl Crow combined with tasty lead guitar work that can either melt face or gently soothe. The songs are hook laden and catchy.

Album Notes
Sleepin’ Dogz is comprised of singer-songwriter / acoustic rhythm guitarist Jeannie Blatus and lead guitarist Leo Burke. Their sound blends a blues injected rock groove with pop flavored jazz . Jeannie’s songs are intimate and sometimes uncomfortably honest. Her voice and performance echoes the passion of Beth Hart combined with the soulful blues stylings of Bonnie Raitt. Very diverse, one moment she conjures up the vein-popping, sweaty, powerful rock siren within, then it’s a healthy dose of sweet, smooth, and sultry. Hook laden and catchy, her songs are the kind you find yourself singing all day.

Leo Burke’s guitar work adds an edgy excitement to the music. His poignant playing tastefully weaves throughout the songs. His leads are melodic and suggest another vocalist harmonizing with Jeannie. Influenced by rock fusion guitarist such as Steve Morse and Jeff Beck, Leo’s close relationship with his instrument (guitar that is) gives him the ability to rip out a face melting lead or gently seduce with a beautiful melody.

Their mutual love of music grew into a love for each other that is undeniably evident on stage. Together they put on a passionate performance. They initially built a strong, creative bond while performing previously in Vero Beach, Florida based Rock band, 4 Steps Closer. Sleepin’ Dogz released their self-titled CD in 2005 with rave reviews. The project was a compliation of songs recorded with members of 4SC, Sheldon Shrum(bass & backup vocals), John Aughinbaugh(drums) and guest percussionist Kevin Lureau combined with a number of all acoustic tracks. They are currently in the studio recording and self producing their second LP with the projected release being early Spring of 2008. Nationally touring for over 5 years, they have developed a loyal and ever-growing fan base.

Must Buy!!
This cd is by far one of the best ones I have been fortunate to come across. The songs are ones that you can relate to and sing along with. You can listen to this cd if you want to just relax or even if you are getting ready to go out on the town. If you dont have this cd in your collection then you are defintely missing out!!


This cd is by far the best cd I own, hands down. Their performances and their fans just rock. You listen to their music once and you are hooked and can't get enough. This cd is a must have!


Jeanie is the most soulful singer/songwriter I have ever met. I fell in love with her style the first time I heard her play. Leo is an awesome guitarist. Their joined musical talents make for one heck of a duo. Her lyrics, like her performances, are personal and have a way of reachin out and grabbing you an making you want more.


Can't get enough!
You guys are awsome! Can't get enough of your music! Everyone I play it for wants to buy it! Keep up the good work, can't wait to see you again!


best album in my collection
Jeanie Blatus the greatest female artist I've ever met, singing, song writing, stage presence, she's got it all.

Leo Burke is everything any one could ever ask for in a lead guitarist. He's sly and tasteful and captures the emotion of the song every time.

What's not to love?
