5.0 out of 5 stars: Glorious sonic mashup of British
Invasion/Indie Pop-Rock vibes. BUY IT!
Rogers & Butler (Edward Rogers and Steve Butler) could not be a more natural pairing. . .from my first hearing of them, pre-any-recordings, in NYC's The Loft at City Winery, it was clear they were onto something special. Their first beautiful 4-song EP Diana Dors proved it beyond a doubt. And now there's this gem -- their debut full-length album Poets & Sinners. With a stellar band of world class New York area musicians -- including Sal Maida, Dennis Diken, Joe McGinty, & Don Piper (also the album's producer), and other superb players -- this compilation showcases melodic mastery combined with intelligent, sometimes piquant and socially relevant, sometimes poignant lyrics, great pop harmonies, jangling guitars and all the best of British Invasion sound combined with the best of Alternative/Indie rock. There's a hint of Kinks, a hint of Petty and Mott, a hint of Beatles & Zombies, even a hint of English music hall (in a nod to Noel Coward). But it's just hints; the songs on the album all have their own completely original vibe. Personal favorites right now (though there isn't a throwaway track anywhere here, not even close) are A Satisfied Mind, Writing to the Moon, Olde Store Fronts, Luv Lock Bridge and the final cut on the album. . ."Sometimes you win sometimes you lose," sings Edward Rogers on that last cut,"The Other Side of Midnight", an homage to the late, great Scott Walker, that closes the album. For Rogers & Butler, this one's definitely a win! Susan E

5.0 out of 5 stars: fantastic new music from Ed Rogers now in collaboration with Steve Butler
This is a MUST HAVE. Normally I would mention a favorite track but I can't this time as they are ALL favorites. If you like pop, great lyrics, Brit rock and are a Kinks or David Bowie fan, you will love this CD. This partnership of Ed and Steve Butler is stellar. lynne Volkman

5.0 out of 5 stars: Buy this album!! (And while you're at it, buy their debut album!!)
I was blown away when I heard Rogers and Butler’s debut EP Diana Dors… Though there were only four songs on the album, that was enough to get me hooked… Great melodies, lyrics, production, and a sound that hearkened back, in a very tasteful way, to the 60’s, my favorite era for pop/rock music. When I heard they were coming out with a follow-up album, I was ecstatic, but wasn’t sure how they would be able top their first release… But sure enough, they did!! A wonderful listen from start to finish… Highly, recommend! Jay Byham

5.0 out of 5 stars: Edward Roger and Steve Butler, a power musicians duo
A must buy/download. The music takes you back to the 60's with 21st century lyrics.Fav song(s) Olde Store Fronts and Fashion Industry. R Suchowierski

5.0 out of 5 stars: Rogers and Butler ---- SUPERB!
It's New and wonderful and yet instantly friendly and familiar. Great pop writing performed flawlessly. Rogers and Butler have pulled it off! While entirely original and engaging you'll hear the influences. Davies, Bowie, Lennon and McCartney. This doesn't mean the music is derivative in any way. It's fresh as can be. And it's song crafting of the highest order. Very well produced and mixed. Great harmonies and musicianship. Even a couple of humorous entries with the jaunty Skimming Milk from the Cream and the Davies-Esque Noel Coward. But every song here is a gem. Check out the the title song or Writing to the Moon. Can't say enough about this one! It's in heavy rotation at my place! T. G. Vellini

5.0 out of 5 stars: Just Two of the Boys
It came in multiple waves. These Brits, not much older than us, intent on rewriting pop culture with a back and blues beat based on our own heritage sounded out more smartly, more rollicking, more literary, more harmonic and just plain better dressed than we could ever imagine for ourselves.
For many of us (both boys AND girls) the impact was profound. It delivered love with a lilt that was at once alien and yet energizing. Even their take on our blues and folk heritage had a cadence we freaking adored. And when it came time for us to rock out along with this Anglomaniacal trend we did so in full regalia from head to toe, mop-top to Beatle boot. To… This… Day… bands abound (from multiple affected generations) that sound more-than-somewhat British in their attack on sonicscapes. I could namedrop a zillion of them but suffice to say… so could Edward Rogers and Steve Butler. I’ve got full histories on these well-seasoned lads (one an actual transplanted young UK kid who has now spent more than a few decades on these shores while his accent gets thicker by the minute and the other a Philly dude, partial to aging Jags and 12-string Rickies whilst smashing pop song palaces with ringing harmonies and jangling guitars in and around the Philly area of Pa. Rogers is the uproot and Butler has braved and boldly delivered for YEARS via his “brotherly” love-centric Smash Palace. Rogers has a slew of solo releases, all in a heap of Anglo inflected glory. Butler, in a more unified group setting that should have paid far greater dividends in respect to the sublime music delivered… think glowing and yet glaring Badfinger and/or Byrds at their best chirping. So, these two have collided anew in a set of songs here, Poets & Sinners. The “&” in their moniker and the CD title is key to their refreshing success here. Although stellar in their past endeavors this new partnership has a very positive push-and-shove effect on both. Think back perhaps to the days when Jeff Tweedy and Jay Farrar delivered the rejuvenation of Americana via their peer-pressured essence via Uncle Tupalo’s No Depression or Graham Nash curbing the ethereal drug buzz of David Crosby in dualities far surpassing their solo efforts (at least for me!). Rogers and Butler sound nothing like those bravado-bondings but they DO duplicate the double-bar raising inherent to such ethereal music mating. I’m going to gloss over the Spinaddict standard of elucidating each track here since there is a seamless continuity to the songs and the songwriting. I do love the not-so-hidden roots revelations of Roll the Stone and A Satisfied Mind (Mott>Hunter/Byrds>Clark) especially since both tunes are brill (as Rogers would say) without being overtly cover-tune-ish. Olde Store Fronts and Poets & Sinners are your go-to Five Star ditties here, nearly video-graphic in their imagery and timely imagination. Fashion Industry and Noel Coward occupy the area of the sky with the least stars here. Both Butler and Rogers are Beau Brummels in their style and panache so both need to realize that doesn’t give them the right to superficially tackle the already crumbling “fashion” complex of modern Society. The words and the delivery are nearly as vapid as the scenario described. And the theatrics of a homage to someone such as Noel Coward is out of their realm of powered-pop and into the arena of Broadway staged antics I continue loathing. No matter though since it is all outweighed by the finest song here… Love Lock Bridge. Brit-Bard careers could be built on this SIX-STAR tune alone, up in the statusphere of the best by The Kinks, The Hollies, Early Byrds, The Zombies and… hold on to your hats… The Sons of the Pioneers and The Carter Family. This is song storytelling at its best. Simple. As. That. Two final accolades here. The backing via Dennis Diken, Sal Maida, Don Piper and Joe McGinty is as close to “super group” as you could ever get in my book. And if you are considering a buying venture here, I also suggest the duo’s Diana Dors EP CD with four additional songs all of an integrated piece to Poets & Sinners. As always, I need to come clean to the fact that I number everyone of these guys as friends in a variety of shared musical contexts (Edward even once made the correct career choice of booting me out of one of his early rock forays… Brighton Rock!) but in no way does that kindred spirit of connectivity taint my impressions here. It just affirms the fact that byrds of a feather flock together whenever possible. I’ve had some success bonding with McGuinn, I’m positive Gram Parsons would be a close buddy of mine today and I’m still open to connectivity with Bobby Zimmerman but those friendships would not affect my adoration of those complex characters. It just so happens that I’ve crossed paths with Edward and Steve. And on that note… You should too via this new slab of superb songs. JJ Spina

Appreciate all the press support for Rogers & Butler and helping spread the word on such an amazing debut album,
Poets & Sinners!

"Sitting firmly in a pop tradition that marries Mick Ronson to Marmalade on some mythical Carnaby Street USA, it’s a seamless pairing and meshing of styles. And if you thought there were no instantly-memorable singalong choruses left to be written in that sort of idiom, you’ll be happy to find out just how wrong you were. Brilliant." (4 stars). Shindig! Magazine

"With their first full length collaboration, Poets & Sinners, Rogers & Butler have found an ideal symmetry that brings out the best in them both." American Songwriter

"The handsomely turned collection rocks as solidly as any in Rogers’ catalogue and includes his most convincing Mott nod (the title, “Roll the Stone,” is a giveaway), a nice bit of Beatlism (“Writing to the Moon”), the Byrds-going-on-Elvis Costello “Jump Like Alice,” fired by Diken’s powerhouse drumming, a stirring piece of social commentary with a great melody (“Olde Store Front”) and one final surprise: the chorus of “The Other Side of Midnight” is a good enough imitation of the Psychedelic Furs that a listener could be forgiven for mistaking which Butler was in the studio." Trouser Press

"With the two ebullient, sound-alike, Ray Davies-evoking crooners trading lead vocals, their debut full-length continues the melodic, jocular, and robust pop/rock of 2019’s Diana Dors EP." The Big Takeover

"They allow their harking voices to shine on this moving and socially relevant tune. It encompasses elements of indie, alternative, folk, and rock music. “Olde Store Fronts” is very relevant in the times that we are living in today. It has a compelling message that needs to be heard." Digital Journal

"Rogers & Butler are back with their wonderful new full-length debut Poets & Sinners. Edward Rogers (vocals) and Steve Butler (vocals, guitar) lead a musical troupe of seven other musicians who collectively display a muscular style of melodic rock strongly rooted in classic song craft and bolstered by loads of inventive touches and winning harmonies." Rock n Roll Truth

"Rogers & Butler‘s new album Poets & Sinners continues their signature melodic rock aided by some of New York City’s best known musicians. There are echoes of Ian Hunter on “Roll The Stone,” George Harrison on “Writing To The Moon” and Tom Petty on “Jump Like Alice” but the LP has a distinctive sound. Lead video ‘Olde Store Fronts’ showcases how Rogers & Butler highlight current issues by reflecting on the past." The Strange Brew

"If you’re looking to find some cool new music with a 60’s British Invasion feel and some shots of vintage NYC check out “Olde Store Fronts”, the first single off the upcoming Rogers & Butler record!" Misplaced Straws

"The album, which follows their beautiful four-song EP Diana Dors, showcases their songwriting talent and features a strong team of supporting musicians." N.J. Arts
