MARTIN ROSSITER + SWEET SWEET LIES + VANESSA KNIGHT

MARTIN ROSSITER + SWEET SWEET LIES + VANESSA KNIGHT

27th September 2011

Now confirmed! Following a seven year self-enforced absence from the music industry, 2011 will see Martin Rossiter return with his debut solo album, filled with achingly tender songs. Described as one of the most eloquent lyricists of his generation, Martin’s new work should continue to both break and mend hearts.

Part of the Welsh diaspora, Martin was raised on the melodies of Charles Wesley and the gritty glamour of Shirley Bassey. From 1991 to 2004, he was the singer of Gene – a group who, though often misleadingly described as a 'Britpop' band, did not fit the boorish and nationalistic mould but illuminated the 1990s with songs such as Olympian and We Could Be Kings. They disbanded in 2004, having accumulated 10 Top Forty hits, over a million record sales and a devoted international fanbase.
