JOSEPH PARSONS / DOGHOUSE ROSES DOUBLE BILL
JOSEPH PARSONS returns to the UK for the second year following his acclaimed 2016 tour. Parsons is a prolific songwriter, recording artist and performer with over 20 commercial label releases. Both live and with his recordings, he has always created his own unique sound. He brings a heart and soul to his songs through energy and emotional honesty, ranging from stories of people caught in hard times to uplifting songs of love and life.
His CD's are always a journey for the listener and his most recent, ‘The Field The Forest’ (Blue Rose Records), is no exception. His music weaves elements of rock, folk & soul into his own distinct and authentic sound. Both as a solo artist, and also with his band, his stage shows are dynamic, spirited and deeply moving experiences.
Originally from the music city of Philadelphia, Joseph Parsons has made his name by consistently delivering exceptional song driven albums alongside a rigorous touring schedule throughout Europe and the US, including last year’s successful tours of the UK and Germany with Doghouse Roses. Accompanying Joseph Parsons on this tour is the exceptionally talented guitarist, Freddi Lubitz.
"Once again, this album shows that Joseph Parsons is one of the most talented singer-songwriters of his time - it has been like this for years. Now must be the time for his deserved breakthrough....." (Maverick)
DOGHOUSE ROSES are a highly acclaimed folk / Americana duo from Glasgow formed by guitarist Paul Tasker and singer Iona Macdonald in 2006.
The tenth anniversary of the band was marked with the release of their third studio album, 'Lost Is Not Losing’(Yellowroom Music) in November 2016 which has subsequently gained superb reviews across the music press. On the week of its release it was album of the week on BBC Radio Scotland, and the Daily Express declared that it 'delivers an extraordinary punch'.
Previous years saw the duo establish their reputation through the UK and Central Europe, touring on their own and as members of U.S. based alt-country collective The Willard Grant Conspiracy. Following a recent successful tour of Germany as support to the Joseph Parsons Band, they join Joseph and Freddi as joint headliners for this UK tour.
“Paul Tasker is one of THE guitarists of his generation” (Maverick)
“In Iona Macdonald's singing resides a loveliness that cannot be taught.” (Rolling Stone)
