The Gutter Daisies are a 3 piece rock band hailing from Los Angeles, California. Spearheaded by award-winning songwriter Doug Rockwell, who has penned songs for major label pop and rock acts as well as hit TV shows. The band was originally formed as an escape from pop politics – a longing to reunite with the angst and real emotion of music that now seems as if it were banished from the craft. Teamed with bassist and touring veteran Miles Franco, and drummer and former band mate from various other projects, Mike Diggs, this isn’t the trio’s first rodeo. Their influences cascade from bands like The Hives and The Vines, to 90’s rock acts such as Nirvana, Green Day, Refused and Weezer. The Gutter Daisies’ energetic live performances tell all, showing the crowd within moments that they’re a monster on a mission.
