ESP – three

ESP -threeTony Lowe’s ESP Project is back with four great new tracks. Titled three, the new EP contains over 30 min of progressive rock, released 19th January, 2019. ‘three’ has all the hallmarks of the first two ESP releases, with DaeTony’s symphonic compositions and arrangements weaving in and out of evocative and passionate vocal sections, delivered with both sensitivity and power in all the right places by Damien Child, an accomplished actor and singer with many years experience in TV, Radio and West End Theatre.

With Greg Pringle on Drums and Pete Clark on Bass this is a formidable combo of accomplished musicians playing with heart and soul. Threaded through by Tony’s unmistakeable guitar and keyboard playing, a must for anyone who liked the previous two albums, which together were given over twenty-six, 4 – 4.5 star reviews by the music press and voted into the top 10 Progressive Rock – albums of the year as well as in top 20 albums of 2018.

Tony and Damien will be working on a new album for an autumn 2019 release; in the meantime, as an introduction, ‘three’ is available on Bandcamp as a CD and digital download from 19th Jan, and the usual digital outlets. Press Release

ESP 2.0 Live 2018End of Tour – July 2018 – Thanks for all your support, enthusiasm and genuine warmth over this past year or so. We are now back in the studio working hard on new material and will have the EP out before years end. Next Spring will see a new album and some live dates. In the meantime, there will be comment, pictures and general murmurings from the page, so please stay in touch. – Tony Lowe & Peter Coyle – ESP 2.0

Tony Lowe & Peter CoyleA fortuitous email from ex Lotus Eaters – vocalist and lyricist Peter Coyle, to Sunn Creative producer and creative director Tony Lowe, led to a new collaboration and album release, ’22 LAYERS OF SUNLIGHT’ by Tony Lowe & Peter Coyle aka the ESP 2.0 project. A venture conceived as a mutable work in progress, with different musicians joining in on subsequent releases supported by a ‘core band’. The album also features the versatile Mark Brzezicki on drums.

’22 LAYERS OF SUNLIGHT’ takes a different direction in prog from the debut album ‘Invisible Din’ by utilising classic progressive experimentation, a hallmark of the early progressive rock bands and the general theme of the ESP 2.0 project with fluidity and innovation at the foundation. It follows that further releases will also align to this standard.

Working with Peter Coyle in production at the label has involved a creative genesis of ideas; Peter Coylehe was recently described as ‘one of the most under-rated singer/songwriters in the UK’ and is not only a prolific, passionate vocalist and lyricist but an original artist. His ethos and that of Sunn Creative are similar involving dedicated professionalism and ethics aligned with the exploration of the ongoing process of creativity and its many manifestations.

In February 2018, Peter Coyle was signed to the Sunn Creative label/ESP 2.0 Project and we couldn’t be more delighted. ’22 LAYERS OF SUNLIGHT’ is released 20/04/2018.

David Cross interviewed in Classic Rock describing the creation of Starless Starlight; “Then I spent so long in developing these that they only really came into focus when Tony Lowe came into the project as a co-producer to help bring it all together. You can get so locked into music that you can’t see the wood for the trees. Thankfully, Tony saved me from myself. What I was aiming for was music that was warm yet dark. Something that drew you in, yet also had a certain distance. I think that’s what you hear.” Sunn Creative Producer – Tony Lowe (co-producer of Starless Starlight) –  Continued

Chris Gray

MaverickDiamonds In Your TreeChris Gray’s debut album, ‘Diamonds In Your Tree’ was released April 6th, 2015 in CD Digipak & Digital. Chris creates heartfelt folk melodies with dynamic Britpop overtones and engaging lyrics and in the past has been compared to the likes of Noel Gallagher, Elliott Smith, John Power, James Taylor and The Beatles. Chris’ influences range from Fleetwood Mac to Ray Lamontagne, Otis Redding to The La’s.

On April 1st, Chris Gray (accompanied by producer, Tony Lowe) made an appearance on the Robert Elms Show BBC Radio London 94.9, where he had a chat with RoTony Lowe - Robert Elms - Chris Gray bert and played his new single, ‘She Loves The Morning’ live. Playlist

New review in Maverick – “Diamonds In Your Tree has an ethereal, dreamy ambiance across the 11 tracks. It really is quite addictive and would be almost impossible to compare it. Pretty much out there on its own in style, with oodles of class on top.” See more of Simon Redley’s 4 star review in the May/June issue.

An excerpt from the Faeta review of Chris’s new album Diamonds In Your Tree -“Chris Gray has clearly got some chops. On the evidence of this first album, he’s got some damned fine songs as well…if you want to wrap your ears around some quality songwriting that will lift your heart as well as your eyebrows, you could do far worse than seek out this album.” – Nick Churchill

From the opening track from the debut album, Diamonds In Your Tree, from Isle of Man singer-songwriter Chris Gray, his distinct blend of contemporary indie (think Ocean Colour Scene or The Las) and acoustic pop (in the manner of Elliott Smith) makes an indelible impression on the listener. Not least because he’s clever enough to add just a soupcon of Beatles and Donovan flavours to create an attractive recipe.” More from – Steve Caseman – R2Chris Gray Acoustic & R2

“…a smart debut albumRock Society May-June 15…great to stick on and ease away the day’s ups and downs…an essential.” MH – Full ReviewRock Society
