Rogers & Butler CD Release at The Living Room at 35 East
Edward Rogers and Steve Butler (Smash Palace, David Uosikkinen's In the Pocket) have teamed up to record their first full-length album, "Poets & Sinners." Join us at The Living Room to celebrate the release.
Edward Rogers and Steve Butler first bonded over a mutual love and respect for British singer-songwriter Duncan Browne. After releasing a well-received, four-song EP, "Diana Dors," the duo is now releasing its first full-length album, "Poets & Sinners," on Zip Records this spring. With "Poets & Sinners," Rogers & Butler display their stunning melodic songwriting talents, and along with Don Piper's production skills, have delivered their strongest music to date with eleven brand-new compositions.
Since the EP's release, Rogers & Butler have played several live shows in the US and the UK, where they performed with legendary singer-songwriter John Howard. They also opened for The Zombies on several dates in the U.S. this past summer. Chris White of The Zombies said: "Well recorded, written and sung. Great feel, strong harmonies. Well done Ed and Steve."
"Great songs from Ed Rogers and Steve Butler. Very melodic and punchy!"
- Roger McGuinn of The Byrds
"US-based Rogers & Butler (Edward Rogers, Steve Butler) stirred everything from punk to power pop to folk-rock into their always-distinctive soup."
- Shindig! Magazine
