Dog House Music is the second album by Seasick Steve, and his first as a solo artist. It was released on 27 November 2006; however pre-release CDs were available for sale to members of his site's mailing list.

The album is almost entirely performed by Steve, apart from snare drum on Yellow Dog and crash cymbal on Fallen Off a Rock, performed by H.J. Wold (a relation of Steve, whose real name is Steve Wold), and drums on the hidden track by Steve's son P.M. Wold.

The album reached #37 in the UK album charts, #2 in the independent album charts, and #31 in the downloads chart, all three from sales in the UK.[citation needed]

Hidden track[edit]

As on his first album, Cheap, there is a hidden track. Seven seconds after the end of the last listed track, "I'm Gone", Steve tells a story, following complaints about his storytelling on Cheap. He talks about a faithful dog named Trixie that he once owned. One time he was arrested, and on his release, his dog was waiting for him 60 miles away from where he left her six months earlier. The dog then had 12 puppies, which she cared for, until one day, she just went and never came back. This left Steve with 12 puppies. This story is followed by a song, with Steve on guitar and his son P.M. Wold on drums, entitled, '12 Dog Blues'.
