“Every choice White makes on this album is in service of the song, the entire song, no matter into what uncomfortable territory it might take her…. it further cements her legacy as an East Nashville treasure worth following down any rabbit trail she chooses to explore. “ NO DEPRESSION
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — If there were an East Nashville Music Hall of Fame, Amelia White would already be in it. The now-famous scene was in its formative days when White arrived from Boston in the early 2000s and became a fixture at the Family Wash. She’s been a leading light in America’s most musical zip code ever since, even as she’s developed a reputation in the rest of the U.S. and Europe as a first-rate songwriter. She helped define and refine the core folk-rock sound of Americana, yet her band’s energetic pulse never outshines her carefully wrought lyrics. She’s a poet who’s been compared to more famous songwriters for years; now, it would be more appropriate to use her as a benchmark.
White’s seventh album, Rhythm of the Rain, released January 25, 2019, is a volume of ruminations and short stories written largely during a tour in the U.K. in 2016. There, at a distance and with a sense of helplessness, she watched America’s political system and her values attacked from within. Then the project was recorded by East Nashville sonic maestro Dave Coleman (The Coal Men) in an emotionally wrenching four days between White losing her mother and marrying her partner. Roots music is a journal of love and loss, and Rhythm of the Rain couldn’t be a more potent dispatch.

Doghouse Roses are a fiercely independent duo combining harmony vocals, guitars and clawhammer banjo. Their unique perspectives on modern themes in their writing, coupled with their vibrant, emotive live shows have led to widespread acclaim, with Americana UK describing them as “our version of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings’.
On it’s release, their third studio album ‘Lost is Not Losing’ was record of the week on the Iain Anderson show (BBC Radio Scotland), and heavily featured on Radio Deutschland while 2018 saw a sold out headline show at Celtic Connections and UK, Dutch and German tours. They established 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 playing on the 2009 album ‘Pilgrim Road’ and as members of the touring band on the 2007, 2008 and 2009 European tours.
Doghouse Roses are preparing to release their fourth studio album ‘We Are All Made of Light’ in October 2019
