Lost Dogs have been called a country music supergroup, but they consider themselves to be a roots and alternative music group. They began in 1991 as a one-time collaboration between four very different vocalists and songwriters from four different bands at the behest of their label at that time. Terry Scott Taylor (Daniel Amos, the Swirling Eddies), Gene Eugene (Adam Again), Derri Daugherty (The Choir), and Michael Roe (The 77s) have over the last two decades released eight eclectic albums of traditional American music (country, folk, blues, rock) with a decidedly modern feel. The Lost Dogs' concert performances are filled with between-song jokes and one-liners between the band members (usually poking fun at each other).

Many Lost Dogs albums include at least one or two cover songs. Songs covered by Lost Dogs on an album or in concert include Bob Dylan's "Lord, Protect My Child" and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," Leonard Cohen's "If It Be Your Will," The Beatles' "I'm A Loser," "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)," and Stephen Foster's "Hard Times, Come Again No More." They have also recorded a number of Traditional or Gospel standards such as "Dust On The Bible," and "Farther Along."

In March, 2000, shortly after the release of their "Gift Horse" album, Gene Eugene died in his sleep at The Green Room, his recording studio in Huntington Beach, California.

2003 saw the release of the band's first DVD, "Via Chicago", a black and white concert film released by Lo-Fidelity Records. A followup DVD, "Via Chicago (All We Left Unsaid)", containing additional songs from the concert, was released in 2006. Also that year, the band performed a show in Chatsworth, California which featured surprise video tributes by Dick Clark, Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith.

Although the loss of Eugene is noticeable, the remaining three Lost Dogs members continue to tour and record new albums. In 2004, the band got together with longtime friend Steve Hindalong to produce a special album for their summer tour. The result was entitled "MUTT", and included new acoustic versions of ten songs originally written and recorded for each band member's regular rock bands. The following year, the band would release one of their most unusual recordings to date, the almost entirely instrumental "Island Dreams".

The band's most recent project, "The Lost Cabin and the Mystery Trees", was released July 2006. The band—including the newest official "dog," drummer Steve Hindalong—once again hit the road for a national tour in support of their new album.
