The Rogue State Circus is first and foremost all about the songs and the songwriting - known for being "truly, truly genre-warping" - the band have recorded 2 full LPs to date 2011's "Songs From The Sea of Serenity" and their recent second LP "Songs From The Sea of Storms" with Platinum Producer Gavin Monaghan (Editors, Nizlopi, Scott Matthews, Sherlocks, Twang, Blinders, Ocean Colour Scene).

The core of the band's flexible line up currently consists of Singer-songwriter Jon Delaney on lead vocals/guitars ; Karl Muddiman on Keyboards; Rai Clews on Cajon/Percussion and Jeff Roberts on bass/backing vocals.

Rogue State Circus offer premium strength, melodic pop folk-rock songwriting with well-crafted lyrics and always enjoy giving a passionate, energetic live performance. Come and join the circus: go rogue!
