Marjorie Fair

Marjorie Fair -- the name's like a girl in argyle on a crisp autumn day. Maybe, but in actuality Marjorie is singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Evan Slamka. Slamka grew up in New Jersey before making his way to New York City, where he was in and out of groups in the usual way. Eventually he and pal Chris Tristram landed in Los Angeles, and working with friends perfected a lush, sometimes melancholy pop sound that drew from influences both old (Beach Boys) and new (Red House Painters, Elliott Smith).

Slamka eventually caught the ear of Capitol, and around 2003 began work on the full-length debut of Marjorie Fair. (The name comes from a type of rose.) A host of big names worked on the record, including producers Rob Schapf and Jerry Finn, legendary L.A. music presence Jon Brion, organist and keyboardist Kim Bullard, and ace studio drummers Jim Keltner and Joey Waronker. The album that came to be called Self Help Serenade first appeared in the U.K. in 2004, and garnered gushing press for its tasteful '60s-meets-indie stroll. Serenade finally hit American shelves in July 2005. Touring to support the record, Slamka was joined by Dain Luscombe (keys), Scott Lord (bass), and Mike Delisa (drums). ~ Johnny Loftus

I know I already commented on here, but I came back to look - WAVES sounds like such a great throwback to seventies music and it is great to singalong to!

Bought this CD. Was a mistake. Waves is the only good song.

Read the bio. There never was a "they," just "him."

I had the pleasure of seeing Marjorie Fair at the HOB in San Diego in November 2005. Their bass player, Scott Lord, is one great bass player and a hottie to boot! "Waves" is their best release. Hope to see more from Evan Slamka in the future--he's a marvelous songwriter.

Hopefully they broke up and re-formed under a masculine name.
