Paul Cox is one of the best showmen and singers around today. Equally at home with Soul and Blues songs, and more than capable of Rockin’ it up, he has been described by DJ and Blues Band legend Paul Jones as having “ one of the best voices in the UK.”

Paul has an impressive track record, playing with great guitar players including Snowy White, Ray Minhinnett, Henry McCulloch, the late John Slaughter, and recently French guitarist Chrlie Fabert.

Paul is a regular at venues and festivals across the UK and Europe , including Montreux, Ronnie Scott’s, the London Palladium, and the Royal Festival Hall.

He has opened for some of the greatest artists in the world, including Ray Charles and Eric Clapton, and sung with Paul Rogers, Bonnie Tyler, Sam Brown, Ruby Turner, and Debbie Bonham.


The studios are a working base for musician, composer and producer Roger Cotton, who plays piano, Hammond organ and guitar. Roger played for many years with the Peter Green Splinter Group touring with artists like B B King, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Buddy Guy, Jimmy Ray Vaughan, Louisana bluesman Larry Garner, the late great James Carr and many more. His latest tours have been with Buddy Whittington from the Bluesbreakers.

Roger has vast experience of studio work, over the years recording for, among others, CBS Epic, Polydor, Pye, DJM, Bell, Direction, Eagle Rock, Snapper, Tembo, Iron Horse, Moorland Street Records (Yardbirds USA), Note Music and other independent blues and R&B labels.

Roger’s background also includes collaboration with many other musicians/writers in the production of music for records, film, TV and theatre used around the world.
