File Under Saturday Night
Call it Future Pop, or Future Funk, or just plain fun; whatever you call it, Miss Fairchild's music has the power to turn any time of day into Saturday Night, when having fun is easiest and inhibitions are at a minimum
With a second album (the much-anticipated Ooh La La, Sha Sha...) nearly completed, Miss Fairchild has focused on all of the things that have made them successul: an ear for catchy melody, a fusion of the classic, the modern, and the yet-to-be, and an ability to make people move. Ooh La La, Sha Sha... finds Miss Fairchild reaching new heights and transporting listeners to an unimaginably fun and impossibly hype Saturday Night of the Future.
The next group in the lineage of Sly and the Family Stone, The Time and OutKast, Miss Fairchild has been delighting audiences with their infectious, memorable dance music for nearly two years. Lead singer Daddy Wrall evokes the traditions of James Brown, Glen Goins and El DeBarge with his impressive vocal range and charismatic stage presence. The Great Dunlap brings his own flair to the Bobby Byrd role, toting flute and keyboards that evoke Roland Kirk and Bernie Worrell jamming at an exorcism. And Samuel P. Nice masterminds this musical time machine, with his inventive rhythms, subtle textures and Maceo Parker-like fluency on the saxophone. As if that weren't enough, the band now features Pat "Trick" Johnson on bass guitar and Todd "the Rocket" Richard behind the drum kit.
Bringing a tightness and power to their live show that is unrivaled in the pop world, Miss Fairchild plays the one show that can be counted on to make any time Saturday Night. The soulful chaos that boils just under the surface of their smooth transitions and well-crafted image is enough to make even the coolest in-crowd forget what day it is.
