Roger Evernden is a British composer and musician.
Roger tells this story: My grandparents had a lovely old upright piano - with a fascinating history. The story goes that the piano was on-board one of the Cunard liners in the early 20th century. During a storm, the piano slid across the room crashing into the wall and cracking the piano frame! My grandfather was an engineer. He bought the piano from Cunard, despite being told that it was impossible to repair… but he added a sturdy bracket and several solid bolts, and the piano took pride of place in the front room - the best room of the house. I was fascinated by this piano, and took every opportunity as a young child to play it. I took piano lessons from the age of 8, but don't have any formal qualifications.
These early music explorations provided the seeds for a lifetime playing and composing. In the 1960s and 70s, influenced by bands and composers such as The Beatles and Brian Eno, He experimented with ambient sounds, modified instruments, tape recorders, and composition forms, and in the 1970s composed with VCS3 synthesizers at Goldsmiths Electronic Music Studio in London.
During the 70s & 80s he played and wrote songs with several bands, including Capital Chaps, and Watch My Lips.
The solo album Glebe (1990) was re-released in 2015.
The solo piano albums Improvation (2014) and The Journey We All Make (2016) contain a unique melodic blend of classical, new age, jazz, and improvisation.
