Kaye is the fifth solo album from UK-born, NYC-based singer-songwriter, Edward Rogers. Inspired and dedicated to the late English singer-songwriter and psychedelic legend Kevin Ayers (a founder member of Soft Machine), Kaye features 11 new Rogers originals and a version of Ayers’ "After The Show." The album was produced & engineered by Don Piper, recorded live in the studio in three days at Brooklyn Recording, tracked by Andy Taub; mixing was done at Broadway Recording and Saltlands Studio by Piper and Rogers. Kaye is released on Zip Records May 27.

Once again, Rogers has put together a stellar group of musicians to play on Kaye's twelve songs that were all penned by Rogers with the exception of "After The Show." Musicians James Mastro (Ian Hunter, Bongos), Sal Maida (Roxy Music, Sparks, Cracker), Dennis Diken (The Smithereens), Joe McGinty (Psychedelic Furs), Don Fleming, Gary Olson (Ladybug Transistor) and Pete Kennedy (The Kennedys, Nanci Griffith) come together on Kaye, which was produced by Don Piper (a don piper situation, Syd Straw), and also features backing vocals by Tish & Snooky (Manic Panic, Sic F*cks). The crack team tackle a combination of styles from hard edge pop to slight groove to tender ballads. Rogers describes Kaye as a mixture of madness and softness, and hopes Kevin Ayers, who was a major force in England’s psychedelic movement, would approve.


Back to Clients


Born in Birmingham, England where he spent his 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 drum kit and 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 and found he found singing and writing more rewarding than playing drums. Over the past decade, Rogers has been extremely prolific, releasing four solo albums (two of which were co-written with George Usher) as well as two with Bedsit Poets, which Rogers founded, a Folk/Brit-inspired trio whose name was given to them by The Zombies' Colin Blunstone. Rogers will be on tour with Colin Blunstone this Spring.
