"The Fairchilds have made a memorable album that stands on its own today."

 

In an age when the singer/songwriter has taken a backseat to over-produced fluff and industry created trend hipsters, it’s nice to discover a project like The Fairchilds. The band is the creative child of Cyril Niccolai, who hails from France but now makes his home in Phoenix, Arizona.

Niccolai, who grew up on metal bands such as Testament, Metallica and Guns N’ Roses, later found a passion for writing and performing music with more emotion and pop-sensibility. He culled some 200 songs from which he chose the 12 tracks on The Fairchild’s debut, Our Revolution. The album was produced by Jim Lowe (Foo Fighters, Stereophonics).

Despite his family’s wishes that he follow their footsteps into medicine, which Niccolai did attend school for, he jumped into a stage production of Notre Dame de Paris. He played the poet Gringoire, which is perhaps apt given his musical and lyrical vocation. After his parents saw his performance and saw his talent and passion for the arts, there was no turning back. The Doctors Niccolai understood that music would be the path for their son.

The Fairchild’s music, while emotive and personal, is still about a positive uplifting message, even in trying times. The album’s first single, “Unbreakable” is a tribute to hanging tough in our darkest most painful moments.

While Our Revolution may be one of the quietest releases of the fall, it is certainly one of the best debuts to come out this year. Niccolai, and The Fairchilds have made a memorable album that stands on its own today, but also shows extraordinary promise for the future.

I recently had an opportunity to chat with the band’s founder about his path into theater, music, his move to America, and his recent special acoustic performance in the Bay Area alongside the likes of Daughtry and Nickelback.
