“Evocative and ambitious…we’re dealing with quality” PROG magazine
“Glorious and traditional British prog rock!” Prog Notes Special
Producer and guitarist Tony Lowe (Cross & Fripp / Simon Townshend / Bram Stoker), vocalist Peter Coyle (ex Lotus Eaters) and drummer Mark Brzezicki (Procol Harum / The Cult / Phil Collins) hit the road with a blistering combination of top-flight musicianship and some of the most astonishing prog rock for many years. Born out of a collaboration with members of King Crimson and Van der Graaf Generator, ESP 2.0 tours as miraculously tight, disciplined five-piece, and places itself firmly at the centre of the British prog movement.
Striking a chord with fans of 70’s Genesis, Yes and Floyd, ESP 2.0 is no nostalgia project. Their shows are complex, eye-wateringly virtuosic, immersive and thrilling. If you like real music by real musicians, you’ll love this.
