A 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; he 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.
“making music is the deepest part of our lives…it takes just over a second for the light from the moon to reach us…it takes a lifetime to share the wonder of that with others…and that is what we feel we have done with ’22 LAYERS OF SUNLIGHT‘” – Peter Coyle
