From New York comes the latest album from UK-born singer/songwriter Edward Rogers titled "Glass Marbles." This will be his sixth album and will be released on March 11th through Zip Records. Over the last year, Rogers wrote over 50 songs as contenders for his new album and with the help of producer Don Piper knocked it down to the 19 that are featured on this new album.

His storytelling lyrics are so descriptive as in "Welcome To My Monday Morning" that he paints the perfect picture in your mind of what he is singing about. Rogers is bringing his love for flea market shopping to "Jumbo Sale," before rocking out on the "Olde House On The Hill." This release is filled to brim with many different genres as Rogers's wonderful songwriting becomes the main focus of the album.
