Frank Fairfield

Frank Fairfield performed American vernacular music professionally for several years, eventually realizing how mentally unfit he was for that profession. He quit the music racket and joined a crew of unlicensed construction workers servicing a hand full of unusual small museums and theater in Los Angeles. That led him to the The Yard Theater, where he now currently resides and helps run with his friend John Ennis. He still plays music, practicing the violin everyday for his own edification and occasionally performing with friends like Meredith Axelrod and The Temple Street Stringband.

Prince Diabaté

Prince Diabaté hails from a prominent, Malinké family from Guinea, West Africa. He learned his art from his father, Djéli Sori Diabaté. Breaking with tradition, his father also taught Prince’s mother, Hadja Djeli Sira Cissoko, to play kora. The young boy became an exceptionally early starter by accompanying his parents to their concerts throughout West Africa. Despite his father’s disapproval, he decided to make music his life. When he was eight years old, form Guinean President, Sekou Toure, came to his home town, Kindia, for a celebration in Independence Square. Braving the outraged soldiers and his own fear, the young musician grasped his kora, threw himself at the President s feet and played a special song for him. Greatly touched by his skill and audacity, Sekou Toure became his benefactor, enrolling him in the National Children’s Theater in Conakry. At 16 years of age, in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, he stumbled upon a videocassette of Jimi Hendrix, and entered the international kora competition. Taking first prize that day ‘Prince Diabaté, Prince of the Kora’.

Paul Chesne

Fake 3rd Person
Manifesto
Why we play music:

For the love of it. Because we’re hungry. To make people happy and dance. To make all the pretty girls cry. Because we’re high. Because we’re low. Because we’re drunk or ascetic. Because we can’t in good conscience do anything else.

Bio 1:
Here is some fake 3rd person:

Paul Chesne (born June 4, 1976) is an American rock n’ roll singer-songwriter and guitarist.

He has traveled throughout the United States and played well over 1200 shows since 1999 including cutting his teeth playing upwards of 150 times at the infamous Kibitz Room in Canter’s Deli. He also held court with a 9 year residency at O’Brien’s Pub in Santa Monica.
