Description

Hosted by The Bare Bones Collective, the mighty FRESCHARD is coming to play a one-off house show in Monpelier, Bristol. If you haven't already encountered her charms, expect Francoise Hardy style vocals, tongue in cheek lyrics and subtle arrangements played with an irresistible Parisian swagger. Freschard will perform as a duo with longtime collaborator Stanley Brinks (Andre Herman Düne). With support from Other Tongues (ttps://soundcloud.com/micks-94429394)

Freschard grew up in a farm in French Burgundy. She started organizing shows in the barn when she was about 12 years old. Aged 18 she moved to the big city, Paris, where she baked pies and cakes in a cafe. There, a local musician and regular customer called Andre Herman Düne wrote a few songs for her to sing. She called her first E.P. “Neon Orange”.

Homeless in Paris, she saved up just enough money to get herself a ticket to New York. There she found an old electric guitar and started writing her own songs. She recorded her second e.p., "Shower Gel", with Mike Gomez on lapsteel guitar.

In 2004 Freschard moved to Berlin, where she recorded her first LP, "Alien Duck". Her second album, "Click Click", recorded in 2006, features a drummer (Leo Bear Creek), and electric guitar by Stanley Brinks. On her third album, “moonstone”, she plays the drums herself. On her fourth “shh...” she also plays the flute. Her fifth album “boom biddy boom” is an urban pop masterpiece. Her latest LP, 'Sunday Night' features such hits as 'friends' and 'party'.

As a producer she recorded “Yodels” by Stanley Brinks, “if you leave it alone” by the Wave Pictures and many other great sounding albums.

Freschard has a Calypso cover band with Stanley Brinks, called Kreuzberg Museum. She's also part of the cult band "the Fox" with Stanley Brinks, Ariel Sharatt and Mathias Kom (aka "the Burning Hell"). She also has duet albums co written with Stanley Brinks : 'New Cologne', 'Pizza Espresso' and 'Midnight Tequila'
