Big River

Big River release their debut album 'Redemption' on August 16th 2019

Hard Rock band Big River release their long awaited debut album titled 'Redemption' via Trouserphonic on August 16th 2019. The album will see the bands own collection of songs that they personally feel captures the personality of Big River.

Recorded over a two year period at Ranscombe Studios in Rochester, Kent under the guidance of producer Jim Riley, these songs show how diverse a band Big River can be, all the while remaining true to their signature sound.

The band had written close to 30 songs for this album however the songs originally recorded are the ones that remain. 9 songs with just over 30 minutes running time, this is according to Jim Riley "a perfect cut for vinyl". Redemption is the sound of a band taking you on a journey through their innermost feelings; the lyrics are heartfelt and tell a story, the music is from deep down inside their souls. Three years of playing together on the live circuit has given the band their own identity playing honest, no frills, Hard Rock music.
