ESP 2.0 – The unique combination of Peter Coyle (ex Lotus Eaters), Tony Lowe (Composer/Producer/Guitarist) and Mark Brzezicki (Big Country) or Greg Pringle (Quadrophenia - UK Tour, Roger Daltrey) with Richard Smith and Pete Clark. With Special Guest John Young (Lifesigns) at selected venues and Support TBC at others.
Peter Coyle, who was recently described as ‘one of the most under-rated singer/songwriters in the UK’ has now joined forces with renowned composer/producer Tony Lowe to write these deeply evocative and stunningly original songs, merging passionate vocals and intricate soundscapes. Sometimes using complex rhythmic structures, delivered by Mark Brzezicki, overlaid with modern progressive rock elements and orchestral movements, the music creates an intense, dramatic but ultimately uplifting experience. Also featuring Pete Clark on bass and Richard Smith on keyboards.
With Special Guest John Young (Lifesigns) – flying solo *at select venues... John has played with and written for many bands over the years; Asia, The Scorpions, Paul Rodgers, Bonnie Tyler, John Wetton, Greenslade, and Strawbs. More recently he has returned to his progressive roots with Lifesigns who crowdfunded their recent CD Cardington in just 48 hours and got to number 4 in the Indie Chart ‘despite’ no mainstream radio plays. To supplement his work with Lifesigns John is re-visiting the solo show with the impending re-release of his Significance CD. The live set features songs old and new and also visits some areas of both Lifesigns and the John Young Band.

Nick Drake-style acoustic reflections, with an acoustic guitar and a little electronic tinkering to boot. Lovely.

Following the success of last year's radio hit 'Make Love', Joe Cang returns to the spotlight with his long-awaited new album, 'Bed'. Encapsulating the London-born singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist's joie de vivre, the first single to be taken from the album, 'Make Love', became a firm favourite at BBC Radio 2. After being playlisted for five weeks, Chris Evans drew comparisons with the likes of Paulo Nutini and Amy Winehouse, with Joe's life-affirming brand of "new music that sounds like old music" winning him fans all over the UK.
