Marty Willson-Piper is best known for his tenure as a lead guitarist, singer/songwriter and occasional bass player, with disparate acts - the church, All About Eve and The Saints, covering Psychedelia, Goth and Punk with ease. As a songwriter he has written songs for and with Charlie Sexton - Bob Dylan's guitarist, Aimee Mann, Jules Shear, Linda Perry and Grace Slick from the seminal ‘60s band Jefferson Airplane.
Brought up close to Liverpool in England his influences have made him a prolific writer where he has covered even more genres with a slew of solo albums as lead singer and as guitarist and singer/lyricist with other eclectic projects including four albums with English project Noctorum and long time collaborator Dare Mason. Two albums with MOAT, a collaboration with German/Swedish composer Niko Röhlcke (a member of one of Sweden’s biggest bands Weeping Willows) and staying in Sweden, he has also become a member of legendary Swedish Progressive band Anekdoten as a guitarist, touring with them all over Europe, Japan and even Armenia.
He performs an eclectic collection of songs from all aspects of his long history that invites all music lovers to experience Marty as a singer, a songwriter, a guitar player and a storyteller.
Over the past decade, Edward Rogers has been extremely prolific, releasing seven solo albums and two with Bedsit Poets, a Folk/Brit-inspired trio whose name was given to them by The Zombies’ Colin Blunstone.
Rogers released his seventh solo album, TV Generation, via Zip Records in June 2017. In the gritty tradition of Nick Cave, Kevin Ayers and Ray Davies, TV Generation pairs Rogers’ authentic and reflective lyricism with his powerful melodic voice creating an album that is grounded in Britpop and Britfolk. A veritable who’s who of seminal, established artists, he was joined in the studio by several talented musicians that have been well established in their genre for decades, including the album's producer Don Piper (Syd Straw). James Mastro (Ian Hunter), Sal Maida (Roxy Music, Cracker), Dennis Diken (Smithereens), Geoff Blythe (Dexys, Black 47, Elvis Costello), Marty Willson-Piper (The Church), Jane Scarpantoni (Lou Reed) and more!
