Doghouse Roses

Doghouse Roses were formed in 2006 by guitar lessons in Glasgow tutor Paul Tasker and vocalist Iona Macdonald.  They have released 3 EPs and 2 albums and have toured in most European countries.

Tasker’s soundtrack mines the best of Scottish and American musical influences, at one moment homespun and folksy, at another bluesy… Perhaps the standout track is the tender, piano-led “Stalling” which, like a great Joni Mitchell tune, leaves the listener simultaneously sated and devastated” – Trevor Raggat, Rock & Reel (UK Nov ’08)

Vocalist Iona Macdonald has an ethereal voice that gives songs like ‘Gone There’ an almost Clannad-like feel, while guitarists Paul Tasker and Malcolm Lindsay play with a level of expertise that immediately puts them head and shoulders above many similar bands. ” – Brett Callwood, Acoustic Magazine (UK Oct’ 08)
