My First Album, “Fiction”, is now available on CD

My first album, “Fiction” is now available on CD from cdbaby, with a smashing cover designed by Pia Jane Bijkerk:

As much as I think we have crossed into a digital world, receiving and holding the actual CD made the album more tangible.

In the post introducing the digital release of the album, I posted two excerpts out of twelve tracks (The Color Purple and Jungle Path), here they are again with another two excerpts.

Fiction, the title song, has an 80s feel delay with a bright Telecaster tone augmented by a Flanger and synchronized delays. Ruffian is a more atmospheric piece featuring my Strat plugged into a BB preamp and my tiny Fender champ which proves that little amps are really useful when recording.

My First Album: Fiction

My first self-produced 12 track album entitled “Fiction” is out now. It has been a year in the making, a collection of instrumental songs which take their inspiration from almost every decade of pop, blues and rock…

It is available on cdbaby and iTunes (URL list at the end of this post). As you know, you only get little snippets on iTunes and cdbaby so to give you more of a feel of the album, I have selected two songs which you can listen to below.

The Color Purple is an up tempo rock song while Jungle Path is more blues influenced…

The Color Purple by rbigeard

Jungle Path by rbigeard

It is available worldwide on iTunes, just pick your country in the list below (and if your country is not in the list, just look for “bigeard fiction” in your iTunes store):

I have used tons of different gear on this album and will give more details over the coming months. I have recorded all the songs on my houseboat in Amsterdam and it has been a lot of fun. I hope you’ll like and if so, please spread the word! Thank you!
