Prolific British-rock inspired singer-songwriter Edward Rogers gears up to release his seventh solo album, TV Generation, via Zip Records on June 9th. 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 firm 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 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! TV Generation kicks off with the title track that resonates with an electric (and at times psychedelic) throwback to the late 70's - leading into Rogers' nostalgic and heartfelt tribute to fallen icons, "20th Century Heroes". The third track "No Words" slips gently into a David Bowie-esque ballad - theatrical and sober with an emotional force behind Edward's vocals. "On This Wednesday In June" brings the emotional and 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. www.edwardrogersmusic.com
