"Chacun est libre" sortie officielle de l'album 

L'album en français "Chacun Est Libre" est maintenant disponible sur ce site.

De nouvelles sonorités, passant du rock classique à la ballade dans un climat nouvellement exploré.    Tout en gardant son style particulier, Rolly a innové autant par le style de ses chansons, que par les arrangements et la production de cet album.  Avec 12 titres uniques, il nous offre encore des textes qui nous touchent tel que "Le Dragon" qui nous parle de ceux qui luttent contre le cancer et qu'il chante avec toutes ses tripes.   Et il finit cet album en beauté dans un style un peu "Pink Floyd" avec "Ma Terre", un hommage à notre planète si belle et si torturée où l'on savoure une progression musicale sur des paroles qui nous vont droit au coeur. 


 

"Faut Dire Les Choses" est maintenant disponible! 

Le nouvel album de Rolly, "Faut dire les choses" est maintenant disponible en version numérique sur ce site et aussi sur ceux des magasins de musique en ligne. 

Dans la continuité de son premier album en Français,  Rolly a produit des chansons aux textes toujours plus acides, et traite de sujets brûlants avec désinvolture comme il a le don de le faire, "Dire les choses" dans cet album est la ligne maîtresse tandis que le son reste profondément "root", parfois très Classic-Rock comme "Le Rock À Pépé" , des balades avec un penchant Country comme "Viendra Le Jour" , un peu jazzées comme "Ma VIeille France" ou il parle de sa nostalgie du pays de son enfance.   Dix-huit titres qui sauront vous distraire et qui démontre la capacité de création de ce compositeur vous sont livrés ici pour votre seul plaisir.

 

Sortie officielle de l'album "Au Bercail" aujourd'hui! 

Sortie aujourd'hui de l'album "Au Bercail" de Rolly chez les détaillants en ligne.  Premier album en Français de Rolly.  Un album très varié dans les styles tout en gardant la ligne maitresse sur un son Tulsa et des textes parfois touchants comme "Patricia" et parfois amusants comme "J'en Ai Marre".  Rolly exécute la chanson "Mais Tu N'étais Pas Là" écrite par son oncle Jack Ledru dans les années 50, avec son style blues et répond aux phrases de piano de Jack maintenant disparu avec sa guitare et son émotion.  Un très bel album qui ouvre le pas à sa créativité en Français.


 

The album "Welcome" is now released! 

 "Welcome" is an album dedicated to the sound of the vintage years of the 70's and 80's.  With titles like "I'm Just A Bluesman", "Oh My! Oh My!", "I Am A Fool" and "BB Queen" Rolly demonstrated that the root of his music comes from the blues.  While songs like "Welcome To My Eagle Nest" and "As We Live, So We Die" have a more classic sound of ballads as Rolly can write so well.  He did a backslide in arranging again a song 60 years old from his late uncle Jack and produced "You And I", a jazzy type of ballad from the middle of the last century.  This album is a collection of sounds and moods, which will make you feel good. 

You can listen to the tracks on this site and download them.  Tell your friends, relatives, neighbors, peers, teachers, pupils, butcher, and whoever!   Enjoy!
 

Press Release  

PRESS RELEASE: 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –
 
The singer and songwriter known as Rolly Gibb has released his new LP record album, “We Are the Boomers!” The album is comprised of 13 original songs and a reprise of the popular 1950's single, “You Were Not There” by Jack Ledru, Gibb's uncle. The record contains more than an hour's worth of music and is Gibb's most significant rock-'n'-roll release to date. It has been published on the Eagle Nest Music recording label. A tribute to and revival of the great rock spirit of the 1960s and '70s, “We Are the Boomers!” stands as a reminder that the heart of rock 'n' roll is here to stay, now and forever. 
Though the songs on Rolly Gibb's new record are nearly all originals, still each is reminiscent of an echo from the past, one of rock 'n' roll's most striking and historical pieces.
 
“All the rock bands of the '60s, '70s have a great influence on me,” Gibb writes. “My song creation process starts with a riff that sounds like coming out of the great bands of these years.”
 
Fans of the Velvet Underground, the Rolling Stones, and others will undoubtedly hear a roar beneath the notes of “We Are the Boomers!” that comes from the same musical soul, the same thrumming thread which blew speakers out and blew people's minds nearly fifty years ago. It is aggressive, groovy, bluesy, and full of soul.
 
Speaking of the themes with which he has infused his LP, Gibb writes: “It is sharing the love for rock music, the soundtrack of our lives for us Baby Boomers, and also sharing the reality of our present, past and future. By sharing my own emotions and stories in music, I should not only revive the sound of our younger years but also highlight some of my generation’s [perspective] of today.”
 
One of the album's most touching moments comes at precisely its middle, at its heart, when Gibb's version of “You Were Not There” by his uncle, Jack Ledru begins. The piano for the song comes from one of Ledru's French records of the 1950s, accompanied by his nephew Rolly Gibb on guitar and singing. The English lyrics are Gibb's own, as is the new musical arrangement. It is a deeply touching moment and a work of great beauty. Ledru's original recording could not have been more profoundly moving than this edition, published nearly 70 years later.
 
“We Are the Boomers!” by Rolly Gibb is available online worldwide.
