Romain Bigeard started playing the guitar at age 16 inspired by guitar greats such as Jimi Hendrix and Joe Satriani as well as bands such as U2 and The Cure. He has played over the years with various cover and original bands around Besançon, in Eastern France. He then moved to Dublin, Ireland and Paris, France where he built up home studio recording skills, and today he lives in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He was also a regular contributor to French magazines Keyboards and Soundkeys from 1994 to 2003. In early 2010, he started a blog focused on guitar tone.
