FEATURING: Tony Lowe, Mark Brzezicki, David Cross, David Jackson, Alison Fleming, Steve Gee, Phil Spalding, John Young, John Beagley, Pat Orchard and Yumi Hara.

REVIEWS:

PROG Magazine “Evocative and ambitious.…From the first moments of Overture it’s apparent that we’re dealing with quality…Stylistically, this is solid classic/symphonic prog.” GMM – PROG January 2017

“Highlights include…Searching the Banks for a Memory which opens with gorgeous electric harp (Yumi Hara)…before blossoming out with John Beagley’s vocals…Almost Seen, is a beautiful dreaming piece with David Cross’s excellent electric violin work and Pat Orchard’s gentle acoustic guitar…” Rest of Review – DK – Rock Society Jan/Feb 2017

Best Albums of 2016 - “Tony Lowe and Mark Brzezicki may have released the BEST new music in progressive rock in years. From the opening song “Overture” to the closing “Almost Seen” every piece is simply superb…One of the best albums of 2016 and maybe of the decade.” Read the rest of the review by Benjamin E. New Esq. at Without Shoes

TIP (Highly Recommended) - “The traditionally constructed symphonic rock has a melancholic atmosphere… due to the prominent, often compelling guitar playing and the melodic as well as furious saxophone-parts there’s a clearly sharper edge to ESP. Yet the statelier works dominate, especially because solemn Mellotron-like sounds, vital Moog-riffs and robust Hammond organ passages are frequently embedded in the medium length, multi-part compositions.” Dutch progressive rock-magazine iO Pages

Progressive Award 2016 – Top 10 -”glorious and traditional British prog-rock”

Fireworks Magazine Issue 77“‘Invisible Din’ is good. Oh, it’s good alright. This is big, important Prog…” Steve Swift – Fireworks

“…one of the best prog releases this year. Fantastic album!” – Campbell Stewart

TOP Pick of 2016 –“one of the BEST progressive rock albums in years. From the opening “Overture” to the closing “Almost Seen”, this is a true voyage for the prog aficionado!” The Progressive Aspect

4.5/5 Stars – “…it’s difficult not to be swept away by the masterful touch and sounds on show. Steven Reid at the Sea of Tranquility

9/10 Stars - “Invisible Din” is quite brilliant, and surprisingly accessible…” Maximum Volume Music

4/5 Stars – “The symphonic/big sound created make this album one that will stand up to repeated plays. Interesting listen and it certainly grabs the listener’s attention taking them on a marvellous musical journey.” Jason Ritchie – Get Ready to ROCK!

8/10 Stars - from Martin Howell in the November issue of POWERPLAY

4/5 Stars - “Producer/guitarist Tony Lowe’s project with Big Country and session ace Mark Brzezicki has yielded an eclectic album packed full of progressive rock and fusion.” – November Issue of Rhythm Magazine

LIVE

“From the outset it was obvious that the band were a really tight-knit outfit, playing densely layered lines of largely instrumental prog of the highest order... It was possible to detect influences as varied as early Genesis, post-Gabriel Genesis, UK, and even a little Pawn Hearts-era Van der Graaf Generator…” Gareth’s Prog Blog

“The performance is absolutely exemplary, without the slightest imperfection expert hands move in unison as guided by the inspired direction of Lowe… ESP has all it takes to become a must for all lovers of progressive rock.” Open

Track Name: Overture
1. Overture – (Lowe/Fleming)

1b. Over View

I keep waking up - in someone else’s life
Just don’t know where I am half the time
Am I lost inside a dream I can’t control
Or sent from heaven - Just for me

1c. Fall back to Life

Close my eyes - and I’m over the city
Fly much closer - I might lose control
I spin the ground - and I shape the clouds
And all at once you were there
Calling me on - Bright light beyond
Into the night

Close my eyes - and I’m over the forest
Darkness calls me - Too fast to slow
In blurred reveal - This can’t be real
The image fades from my mind
Losing my sight - Fold into dark - Fall back to life
Track Name: Through the Dream
2. Through the Dream
I used to think there was an Angel by my side
So many times I felt her there
And over time she seemed to move away
But I still hear her whispers in the air

The love that stayed within me
Could find a home in many hearts
The power that surrounds me
When she - appears to me in sleep
And calls me through the dream
I am not alone

I tried to leave her ghost behind
But then she flooded every corner of my mind
Between the planets and the stars
You will find her falling in and out of time

The love that stayed within me
Could find a home in many hearts
The power that surrounds me
When she - appears to me in sleep - And calls me through the dream ….I am not alone
Track Name: Uninvited Guest
3. Uninvited Guest

I still remember the day when you became
Just a ghost in my head

But someone’s got a hold on me
Can’t clarify my thinking
Don't know what’s coming next
Oh no

The echoes slowly disappear
And I know that I’m not losing my mind

But something’s got a hold on me
Can’t clarify my thinking
Don't know what’s coming next

Ethereal confusion
The uninvited guest
Oh no
Track Name: Where is My Home
5. Where is My Home

Too loose the ties that bind me
This land - so coarse beneath my feet
Horizon moves from left to right
The ground below now out of sight
Where is my home now
Where is my home

Feel like I’m falling into darkness
No life - is flowing in this place
Voices whisper from all sides
Something’s coming for the ride
Where is my home now
Where is my home
Track Name: Searching the Banks for a Memory
6. Searching the Banks for a Memory

Gone are the fields of old
I don't remember it this way
But here - Where time will unwind
Oh love my love
Don’t leave me behind

Holding course
Staying true
Deep into sky’s ocean of blue

Up through the trees - into the sky
Holding us over - emerald seas
And I give my self - to the air

6b. Cloud Distortion
Falling down the world again
And I don’t feel very certain anymore
It’s like climbing a never ending wall
Lift me out of this noise in my head

Gonna find a way through this dirty old cloud
To the top of the world

Gonna find a way through this dirty old cloud
To the top of the world

Falling down the line again
And it’s getting so much easier my friend

I’m closing my eyes on the world today
Lift me out of this noise in my head
Gonna find a way through this dirty old cloud
To the top of the world

Gonna find a way through this dirty old cloud
To the top of the world….To the top of the world….To the top of the world – Yeah
Track Name: Waiting for the Rush
7. Waiting for the Rush


Such complex messages - Invade my brain
If I could just cross into the light
Here I go - My body slow
Floating far across the night all is shown in second sight

Waves of light caress my skin
Arousing senses - Long lost within
Half asleep - But full awake
I’m waiting for the rush
Waiting for the rush

That glow that guides me through the night
The sparkle in the firelight
Am I seeing through the sunshine in your eyes
Or somewhere in-between
The heart and soul - The heart and soul

I follow traces fading quickly in the sky
And I would gladly take their course
Out of time
This frozen life
All I’m asking is a sign
Let me know that I am near

I’m pulling gravity - So heavy now
But I can make it - If I try
Half asleep - But full awake
I’m waiting for the rush
Waiting for the rush
Track Name: Quiet Days
9. Quiet Days

On quiet days - The colours fade
The blossoms melt away
All motion stops - and I am left
With the darkness of the day
I know the she is here somewhere
Just waiting to be seen

And the clocks have all stopped
But my heart’s beating fast
Faster than time

Now I’m hearing that voice wherever I go
Its calling me - Is she calling me

Will I finally lose control
Lose my mind to save my soul
But the light is shining down on me tonight
I will fly to the moon


Will I see you again
If I open my heart

Up through the trees - into the sky again

All becomes clear
I disappear
Out of the day
Right off the page
Into your world again
So comfortable and true
So far away from the world
So far away

Everything seems crazy now
There once was one who could see
Through the light and the dark

But every time he closed his eyes
She was there for him - She was there
Track Name: Almost Seen
11. Almost Seen

Waking up to the invisible din
Of a ghost that refuses to leave
In the light of the mind I am in
New ways are ours to breathe

Up through the trees - Into the night sky

Ions away - I will not become lost
I flow the river like a lens as it bends all along to the sea

I am free
I am free

11c. Falling Through

Rolling over like the sea
In this deep - Feel so powerful and free
Is there a place that I can reach you
Where horizon meets the stars
I will be there
I will be there

Rising higher than the moon
As spirits do
Falling back too soon

Maybe this vision will return again
It’s fading all the time
I will be there
I can be there
These many lives we live are one
Just as sure as the light behind the sun
Follow me there
