Produced, recorded and mixed at Dog House Studio in Willunga SA, mastered by Mick Wordley at Mixmasters, The Moor Rose debut EP SEEDS OF SONGS is a wonderous mix of songs, sounds and sensations.
Formed in 2011, The Moor Rose features the tunes of talented, self-taught multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Stuart Haines, accompanied by the powerful, moving tones of classically-trained cellist and bass player David Rose. Together they play a diverse blend of Acoustic Folk, Roots and World Music.
Stuart is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist (guitar, bouzouki, flute, percussion), songwriter and composer. Being a self-taught musician (“unclassically untrained”, he muses), his intuitive & improvisational style creates uniquely soulful music & powerful music for the soul. Some of Stuart’s performance highlights include the Garden Of Unearthly Delights 2011, Harmonic Project with Heather Frahn, sold out Adelaide Fringe 2010 show “Ekata: Music, Voice, Dance” with Sacred Tribe Dancers and WOMADelaide in 2007 with South African performer Nigel “Snow Cloud” Martin.
Recognisable for his unruly hair, David has a passion for music and a repertoire spanning over three decades of eclectic performances. From hauntingly beautiful improvisations to session work with established artists, David’s incredible “feel” for the groove takes the listener on a journey of discovery. Performances at the Port Fairy Folk Festival, Adelaide Fringe and the Bangalow Fatherhood Festival have provided an outlet for David’s musical exploration.
