About Jacques Higelin

Jacques Higelin made a name for himself by the mid-'60s and was offered his first opportunity to record. Douze Chansons d'Avant le Deluge was shortly followed by Quinze Chansons d'Avant le Deluge, both renderings of Boris Vian's songs recorded with Brigitte Fontaine. The early '70s found Higelin as a beloved native son of the Parisian artistic underground. In 1971 he released his first solo record, Crabouif. He found a new voice in the mid-'70s rock era with BBH 75, followed by Irradie. Musical grit combined with a poet's attention to verse would come to characterize his career. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez
