    Silence & KAZOO! Present Stanley Brinks, Freschard & Nick Ferrio

    STANLEY BRINKS was born in Paris, France, in 1973. He studied a bit of biology, and worked as a nurse for a while. Half Swedish, half Moroccan, strongly inclined to travel the world, he soon started spending most of his life on the road, and developed a strong relationship with the city of New York. He also started playing the soprano sax (among other instruments) in jazz bands.

    He finally became a full time singer­songwriter – as André Herman Düne – in the late 1990’s. He recorded several albums and Peel sessions with his three piece indie­rock band, Herman Düne. After a decade of touring Europe, most of the time in thecompany of American songwriters, he finally settled in Berlin, Germany. There he grew a taste for the early carnival music of Trinidad, and in the early 21 unquestioned master of European calypso, and changed his name
    to Stanley Brinks.

    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 Dune wrote a few songs for her to sing. She called her firstE.P. “Neon Orange”.

    Between tours, she works as a sound engineer and records her friends’ music. Among others she recorded “Yodels” by Stanley Brinks, “if you leave it alone” by the Wave Pictures. She 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”).­txA
