Lyon, Rhône, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France
From 2010 to this day, Raoul Vignal has been playing authentic, modern folk music. Forming the essence of his compositions, soothing vocals and delicate fingerpicking played on alternate tunings are Vignal’s trademark.
Shortly after the birth of his solo project at the age of 20, Raoul Vignal started performing live in venues and festivals throughout France, giving him a strong stage experience as a solo musician, whether playing for a small audience in intimate venues or captivating a larger crowd.
In 2013, the young musician left his hometown Lyon for a 2-year-long stay in Berlin, where he has been very active in the singer/songwriter scene, frequently performing in the numerous venues the city has to offer.
At the beginning of fall 2015, Raoul Vignal entered Klangbild Studios in order to record his first album, entitled ‘The Silver Veil’, with sound engineer Martin J. Fiedler. The 10 tracks featured on the LP demonstrate an intense acoustic style, carried by pared-down arrangements, with a slight nostalgic touch.
'The Silver Veil' has been released on French record label Talitres on April 7, 2017. Gathering critical acclaim, Vignal then set out on a year long european tour.
On May 2018, Raoul came back to Lyon, his hometown, in order to record his 2nd album, "Oak Leaf", in the Mikrokosm Studios. Both a continuity and a departure from his first full-length, "Oak Leaf" features his touring bandmates and other friends, allowing Vignal's music to explore new grounds of the loner psyche, and deepen the melancholic touch with the help of a richer sound.
