‘22 LAYERS OF SUNLIGHT’ – Album Line-Up (Release 20/04/2018) is the new collaboration between Tony Lowe 22 Layers of Sunlight(guitarist/composer/producer) Peter Coyle (ex-Lotus Eaters) and Mark Brzezicki (Big Country). 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 and Richard Smith on bass and keyboards. *Mark Brzezicki will not be playing at the Merlin Theatre – Frome event due to schedule conflicts.

*Special Guest Mikey Cuthbert at The Half Moon

Mikey Cuthbert is a singer songwriter from Southend on Sea. His music is guitar based acoustic indie and his gritty but beautiful lyrics express his real-life experiences and emotions. Mikey co-hosted the instant cult hit and real time internet show ‘In the Attic’ with Rachel Fuller, which included live music, witty rhetoric and guest appearances from established musicians and celebrities such as Pete Townshend, Simon Townshend, Jerry Hall, Adele and Roger Daltrey. In 2005 Mikey released an EP ‘Invisible’ produced by Simon Townshend and executive producer Pete Townshend, featuring Mark Brzezicki, Matt Pegg and Simon Townshend.

Since then Mikey brought up his two children and began to write and perform again in the last 4 years. He has been composing and performing songs which he uploads and shares on both his Facebook and YouTube channels and will be releasing an album in 2018… Cont Photo by Lewis Wilson

    Lowe cleverly combines sumptuous orchestration with incisive guitar and keyboards, compelling lyrics and soaring vocals. The critical fifth element is the intricate, precise rhythms of Mark Brzezicki…A triumph of style, and substanceRecord Collector January 2017

    I’ve got a feeling that symphonic progressive rock has a new standard-bearer. I’ll certainly seek out future ESP shows in London and the South East – long may they continue.Gareth’s Prog Blog
