Guitarist/stroke songwriter Rob Doyle, formerly signed to Island Records, Rough Trade and BMG, teamed up with former CBS chanteuse and effervescent front person Eda (AKA Roxy Riviera) concocting an eclectic mix of guitar loop-driven soundscapes, Alternative Rock 21st century narratives with passionate vocals along with plenty of warmth and character.
Roxy Riviera says: “Powerful, meaningful, fun — a great selection of catchy songs — let’s bring excitement back to music!”
The heart of the band has been joined by John Rigg, renowned for his work on the other side of the desk, for live and studio engineering. John has swapped his first instrument of guitar (designed and built, ála Brian May, by himself) for the role of a creative and solid bassist. Roxy Riviera says: “He’s a winner: rhythmic, powerful, and super cool!”
Jose Joyette completes the rhythm section for live and studio work, bringing a percussive expertise honed from a list of guest appearances that reads like a ‘who’s who’ of contemporary music from Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and George Harrison to Eric Clapton, Mike Oldfield, and Whitney Houston. To name but a few.
Roxy Riviera says: “He’s a gifted natural with a dress sense as snappy as his paradiddles!”
