Wave Pictures

Start um 19:30 Uhr

The Wave Pictures are back! We return on November 9th with our second album of the year, ‘Look Inside Your Heart’ – a warm, joyous record celebrating friendship, happiness and drunken party times.

Get a dose of African pop with the first single ‘Roosevelt Skyes’ for which you can see the video HERE

Elsewhere on the album you may also enjoy some deep down rockin’ and rollin’ with a love song intended for the young Elvis Presley to cover in an alternate universe, a love song in the laid back style of early 70s Grateful Dead, a beatnik prose poem, Exile on Main Street era Rolling Stones with Tom Verlaine on Lead Vocals, Highway 61 Revisited era Bob Dylan with Nigel Blackwell from Half Man Half Biscuit on lead vocals, and Astral Weeks era Van Morrision as re-recorded by Jonathan Richman and The Modern Lovers. We have something for everyone on this album!

Freschard grew up in a farm in French Burgundy. She started organizing shows in the barn when she was about 12 years old. At 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 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 she 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 last album “boom biddy boom” is a masterpiece.

Between tours, she works as a sound engineer and records her friends’ music. Among others she recorded “Yodels” by Stanley Brinks and “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). All of her albums have been released on cdrs by the label radbab records. “Click click” has been released on vinyl by Conky records. “Boom Biddy Boom” has been released on vinyl in the UK by Wiawya records as well as a 7 inch of two of her songs with the Wave Pictures. Her duet album co-written with Stanley Brinks called “Pizza espresso” was released in the UK in August 2014.

Her new album called Sunday Night has just been released on vinyl by wiaiwya.
