Prolific British-rock inspired singer-songwriter Edward Rogers is gearing up to release his seventh solo album, TV Generation, via Zip Records on June 9th. In the tradition of Ray Davies, Ian Dury and Kevin Ayers, TV Generation pairs Rogers’ authentic and reflective lyricism with his powerful melodic voice creating an album that is grounded firmly in Britrock and English baroque. 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 albums producer Don Piper (Syd Straw). James Mastro (Ian Hunter), Sal Maida (Roxy Music, Cracker), Dennis Diken (Smithereens), Geoff Blythe (Dexys, Black 47), Jane Scarpantoni (Lou Reed) and more!

TV Generation kicks off with the title track that resonates with an electric (and at times psychedelic) throwback to the late 70’s and early 80’s - leading into Rogers' nostalgic and heartfelt tribute to fallen icons, "20th Century Heroes". The third track “No Words” slips gently into an Elvis Costello-esque ballad - theatrical and sober with an emotional force behind Edwards vocals. “On This Wednesday In June” brings the relaxed almost conversational tone of Lou Reed, building into an explosive anthem, while “You and I” brings the record into an intimate light ending in the comfort of a light timpani and Beatles-inspired mellotron. TV Generation ends on the driving fire of “She’s The One” stacking up the energy of the album and leaving you wanting more.

Born in Birmingham, England where he spent the first 12 years of his life, Rogers moved to New York City just as the British Invasion began in the States. He started his career behind the drumkit, which he played in several garage bands. When a subway accident in October 1985 left him without his right arm and right leg below the knee, he turned to songwriting. As he developed his writing talents, Edward found he enjoyed singing and writing more rewarding than playing drums. Over the past decade, he has released six solo albums - the latest being Glass Marble, heralded by Elmore Magazine who said, “He's the perfect singer/songwriter, the ideal personification of Brit Rock superiority. (Glass Marbles)...a sumptuous treat from start to finish."

Edward Rogers co-hosts the popular radio show, Atlantic Tunnel which airs weekly on Little Water Radio.
