It’s finally here! The release of Roger Berkeley’s debut single, Every Time.
Written in January 2013, the song has captivated the imaginations of audiences ever since. The song was finally recorded in Red Lake Sound Studios in October 2015 and will be released online on 13 October 2016, hitting the radio the following day.
The music video, which endorses the post-abortion support group Women Hurt, is being released days before the Irish Citizen’s Assembly sits for the first time. The most anticipated topic of this assembly is the repeal of the 8th amendment and the legalisation of abortion in Ireland, and the video presents the emotional struggle of many post-abortive mothers who come to Women Hurt, often years after having their abortion.
Roger Berkeley is a Dublin-based artist spreading faith and love through his piano-driven rock music. Incorporating a range of styles, his music is a smorgasbord of genres at the right amount of hotness to produce delicious ear candy.
Since June 2015, Roger has been gigging around Dublin, Ireland both solo and with artists such as Sarah Buckley and Carrie Harding. He also set up a band of session musicians to bring his music to life in the studio and on the stage and is now performing regularly on the Dublin circuit. Recent venues include The Czech Inn, Fibber Magees, and Sin É, where he was a finalist in the Crystal Skull sessions.
Having secured a sponsorship deal for the music video, Roger will be releasing his debut single, Every Time, online and on radio on Thursday 13 October, with a launch event to follow in subsequent weeks.
Roger is also founding Ireland’s only record label exclusively backing Irish artists with a Christian message, Providence Records. More information will be available in the coming months.
