"TOUCHE" Sultry rock n' roll bursts out of south
Australia. Doobie Whitehorn, is an unsigned rock
guitarist heavily influenced by Foghat and AC/DC.
This is evident from the "gritty" track "The One,"
which is from the CD "Touche" released on January
1, 2009. A "grimy" tale about a man wanting to be
with a beautiful woman forever. This track
features dark vocals and eerie, but melodic rock
guitar riffs. These features bring out the raw
intensity of the song. Doobie Whitehorn brings
pure attitude to rock n' roll. Leslie Snyder Band

"..." 'Touche' is the kind of Rock that punches
you in the gut and makes you sit up and pay
attention. Passionate, unique, from the heart
lyrics melded together with some of the greatest
guitar sounds you will ever hear from a solo
artist, Touche is as promised. Universal Rock with
a uniquely Aussie attitude. Awesome! The long wait
is over, my friends, Doobie Whitehorn is back with
Style! If you need to "get out of your comfort
zone", and most of us really need to.....grab a
copy! A must have for any serious lover of ROCK!

This is Doobie the solo artist in every sense of
the word. Doobie plays everything. The result is
an album chock full of great rock. Although the
sound has been compared to AC/DC there is so much
more depth here than could be found on an AC/DC
album. Doobie has taken all his influences and
rolled them into one very special package that
sounds like Doobie Whitehorn.
The production is crisp and clear, possibly with
an 80′s feel to it, before the grunge style
made everything sound muddy.
This album is a fantastic achievement.

When I first met Nana Mex some months ago she told
me that Australia has the best music in the world
but most people were as clueless as a tacky 1990s
Alicia Silverstone film. After listening to Doobie
Whitehorn’s latest album Touché I fully realized
what she meant, and also realized that she is dead
right. How I had never heard of Doobie before this
is still a mystery that is a cluster fudge to
There is no subtle introduction to Touché. I
probably love that trait more than anything on the
album. Straight after that play button is pressed
Doobie Whitehorn shows the world what he is all
about – straight forward, no frills rock with a
touch of class and a dab of originality. It is
something Doobie has gotten down to a fine art.
All instruments, production and vocals on the
album are done by the man himself, which clearly
and blatantly goes to show that there really is no
such thing as impossible. That, combined with
lucid and deep messages is what makes Touché a
special piece of work.
Comfort Zone, the third song on the album
epitomizes the sort of experience and gifts we are
looking at. It is hard for most musicians to pull
off a song with a couple of repetitive lyrics
throughout the entire song, but for Doobie
Whitehorn it is a synch. ‘Get out of that comfort
zone; get out of that boring routine’ - That
catchcry is emphatically and routinely delivered
in that song in a way that leaves the listener
nodding their head and singing along by the end.
It gives a positive message too, considering the
often mundane lives most people only too easily
find themselves in nowadays.
So do yourself a fine favor and do something not
part of your usual routine; grab a copy of Touché
by Doobie Whitehorn and have a listen.
