About the Band

Sean Morris and the Doghouse Roses is a UK Alternative Country Band which released its debut single, Never Look Back, in 2020. It’s music combines the introspective, confessional lyrical approach of Blood on the Tracks era Bob Dylan, with the passionate, heartland rock stylings of Bruce Springsteen. 

The band was founded by experienced musicians Sean Morris and Mark Emsley. Sean has been writing songs for over a decade and, as a counsellor in training, understands the importance of music in helping to promote good mental health. He was the frontman for 90s influenced heavy rock band Wolf Law in 2006 before going solo. The band’s lyrics reflect Sean’s desire to make meaningful, inward-looking music which listeners can connect with to help them through whatever troubles they may face. 

Mark has been playing music for as long as he can remember, and was an award winning pianist. Switching to rock in his teens, Mark embarked on a journey which would see him play guitar across the world with various big name bands and demonstrating guitar products for some of the biggest brands in the guitar world, including Hughes & Kettner, Line 6, Fender and ESP. He is also a gifted songwriter in his own right, and brings his own love of passionate, introspective lyrics to the band’s music.
