Scared To Dance presents Stanley Brinks & Freschard on Tuesday 12th April at Sebright Arms.

They will be playing a joint headline set as well as solo sets. Tickets are on sale at DICE.

Stanley Brinks began performing officially as André Herman Düne in 1999, sharing lead vocals, guitar playing and songwriting with his brother David in the band Herman Düne for a number of years. They released several albums and toured extensively in UK, gaining and owing a lot to great support from John Peel. He has used many monikers for various side-projects, but since leaving Herman Düne in 2006, he has been known solely as Stanley Brinks.

Born in Paris, Stanley has been living between New York, San Francisco, Malta and Berlin for about a decade, always on the move. He has recorded more than 100 albums, collaborated with the New York anti-folk scene on several occasions, recorded and toured with traditional Norwegian musicians, and played with The Wave Pictures.

Freschard grew up in a farm in Burgundy. Aged 18 she moved to Paris where she baked pies and cakes in a cafe. There, a local musician and regular customer called Stanley Brinks wrote a few songs for her to sing. 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. In 2004 she moved to Berlin, where she recorded her first LP, Alien Duck. Her second album, Click Click, recorded in 2006, features electric guitar by Stanley Brinks.

On her third album, she plays the drums herself. On her fourth “Shh…” she also plays the flute, and she breaks out the washboard on her fifth Boom Biddy Boom. Together they release Lion Heart on Fika Recordings and WIAIWYA in 2022, a follow up to 2018’s Midnight Tequila.
