Modern Mystery favorite, Edward Rogers, is ready to show New York what he has to offer. Just releasing his fourth solo album this week, Porcelain (Zip Records), Rogers is taking the stage at the new Cutting Room in Manhattan, this coming Thursday, November 17th at 8pm. For those of you who have never heard of Edward Rogers before, get on the bandwagon already! A little bit of Badly Drawn Boy, a touch of Jarvis Cocker, and a big splash of Rogers, create a song that is sonically distinctive.
Edwards has also released a stunning video for the song “The Biba Crowd.” You can see the hip black and white, vintage video for the track here:
The New York-based Rogers, who spent the first twelve years of his life in Birmingham, England, says “I’m motivated by the urge to make music and express myself, rather than by some abstract idea of being some kind of pop star, so I feel like I’m making music for the right reasons.”
