“Great new songs from Ed Rogers and Steve Butler: 7 Hour Man and Diana Dors are both very melodic and punchy!”– Roger McGuinn (The Byrds)

“Well recorded, written and sung. Having recorded w/ Diana (later in her life) I know ‘she would do it all again’ lovely lady. Favourite track is 7 Hour Man – great feel, strong harmonies. Well done Ed and Steve” – Chris White (The Zombies)

“The debut disc from Ed Rogers and Steve Butler is sure to appeal to lovers of melodic rock and power pop. With their top-tier songwriting talents, convincing tandem lead vocals and excellent musical support of a great group of players, the disc proves to be a solid introduction to Rogers & Butler.”  -Robert Kinsler, Rock n Roll Truth

" ‘Possibilities’ rings out the duo’s melodic songwriting chops."-Jason, Barnard, Strange Brew, UK
"Edward Rogers teams up with Smash Palace’s Stephen Butler for a smashing four-song EP full of rock and pop swing.” -Alan Haber,  Pure Pop Radio

"It is rich in storytelling, where it tackles such subjects as opportunities, faith, and consequences.” -Markos Papadatos, Digital Journal

"Seven Hour Man stays with the overall 60's feel musically, although leaning more toward the psychedelic vibe of The Zombies, but with a  current, of-the-moment lyric” -Misplaced Straws


ZIP Records announces the release of the debut CD from ROGERS & BUTLER. The new EP titled Diana Dors features Edward Rogers on lead vocals and Stephen Butler (Smash Palace) on lead vocals, guitar and organ. All the songs on Diana Dors were co-written by Rogers & Butler. The EP also features Sal Maida (Roxy Music, Sparks) on bass guitar, Dennis Diken (The Smithereens) on drums and the EP’s producer, Don Piper (Syd Straw) on guitar and backing vocals. Rogers and Butler first met and bonded over a mutual love and respect for British singer-songwriter Duncan Browne. Their friendship turned into a song writing partnership resulting in the duo’s debut EP, Diana Dors. Zip Records has scheduled a February 2019 release date for the CD.
