Edward Rogers
Artist Bio

British-born, NYC-based prolific singer-songwriter Edward Rogers releases his eighth solo album, Catch A Cloud, via Zip Records on 25 June 2021. Catch A Cloud is a soul-searching, stripped-down personal statement, a trippy swirl of music and ideas, observations of what was going on around him at the time, which influenced both the music and the lyrics of the songs.


You might think this was written during the Pandemic, when in fact this album was completed in late 2019. At the time, Rogers was in a sort of different isolation as he had to stay indoors due to a leg injury. During that time, the songs were all composed and music written, waiting for the magic stardust to be added by producer, Don Piper.


Catch A Cloud was originally scheduled for release in 2020, but Rogers decided to put the album on hold in order to release Poets & Sinners, the debut from Rogers & Butler (Edward Rogers, Steve Butler) in anticipation of tour dates with The Zombies in Europe. The CD was released in June, 2020, but for obvious reasons, all live dates were postponed.


Don Piper was a constant in laying down the foundation of the album and musicians were selected to add their specific style to embellish the songs. The musicians on Catch A Cloud include: James Mastro, Marty Willson-Piper, Sal Maida, Geoff Blythe, Konrad Meissner, Bob Perry, Stephanie Seymour, Pete Kennedy, Chris Carmichael, Mike McGinnis and Ray Sapirstein.


When he's not writing and recording, Rogers hosts a radio show, Atlantic Tunnel, which airs weekly on WFMU's Rock 'N' Soul Radio and monthly on Totally Wired Radio, UK.
