Biography

Fairview: soon to be legends, idols and icons. This band of teenagers grew up as best friends that hope to someday revolutionize the meaning of music.

This group of best friends started making music together during high school. Although they all attended different schools, they still found time to hang out and practice.

Members Matt (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Lizzy (Lead vocals) and Cesar (Lead guitar) all met at a Catholic elementary school called St. Josephs; thus creating their everlasting friendship. It wasnt until high school that they met Becca (violinist), who completed their four member band. But they needed a name!

The four friends would sit around the kitchen table with random books opening to random pages to find words to make up a name. Some of the things that came out of that experience were definitely memorable, but not band-name worthy.

Soon enough, they came up with the name Fairview. But its not just a name. There is a meaning that played into the choosing of the band name. Forever, the band members have been in love with the music of the Plain White Ts and they always wanted to meet the members of the band. Well, it just so happens that the Plain White Ts live in the same area that the members of Fairview are from. So one day, the four friends thought it would be awesome if they showed up at the lead singers house to meet him. They figured out that he lived on the street Fairview Ave. Everyone was so hyped up with excitement that they were so afraid to go and knock on his door. eventually they got the courage and Matt rang the bell. But no one came. So the band walked back to the car which was parked down the street (Fairview).

It wasnt until later that Matt and Cesar actually met the lead singer Tom. Matt was on his break at work when Cesar called him telling him that the lights were on in Toms house. So they raced over, and who should answer the door? Tom. It wasnt until a few days later that the rest of the band was able to meet him, but going back and forth to Fairview Ave. seemed to have left an impression. So from then on, the band was called Fairview.

Now, Fairview thrives as an up and coming pop/rock band playing shows and practicing whenever possible. Each member is constantly thinking about the band and how they can improve as a whole, while still maintaining their everyday lives. Even if you become a rock star, you still have to keep up good grades and stay in school said Beccas mom. And all the members hold true to their school studies along with family commitments. However, Fairview wishes to someday make their band something that they can work at every day rather than once a week so that they can be the best that they can possibly be.

Lyrics

Everybody's Talkin'

Written By: Matt, Lizzy, Sara

Verse 1:
We talk about it all the time, this thing between you and I
We’re yet to find a reason why we can’t be hopeful
Though neither you nor me have said it yet,
This whole town claims that love is what we’re falling in
Well darling if you’re content with what’s being said
lets make it so nobody’s lying

Chorus:
Cuz everybody’s talking like were bound to be married someday
But they don’t know the half of it
they’ll never understand, how happy you make me
I know they’re all just people with theories using terms
endearing to say the least
but I’m not gonna lie it plays out in my mind
in fact I fold my hands every night
and pray the right

Verse 2:
Our thoughts are something borrowed
while baby your eyes are something blue
if I could look into tomorrow
darling all I would want to see is you

Pre-Chorus:
if you would ever run because you think your afraid
I promise you, you’d wish you would stay

Chorus:
Cuz everybody’s talking like were bound to be married someday
But they don’t know the half of it
they’ll never understand, how happy you make me
I know they’re all just people with theories using terms
endearing to say the least
but I’m not gonna lie it plays out in my mind
in fact I fold my hands every night
and pray the right

Bridge:
I know they’re all just people
With theories but who’s to say their wrong
After all you’re the only reason for me to be singin’ this song

Chorus:
Cuz everybody’s talking like were bound to be married someday
But they don’t know the half of it
they’ll never understand, how happy you make me
I know they’re all just people with theories using terms
endearing to say the least
but I’m not gonna lie it plays out in my mind
in fact I fold my hands every night
and pray the right
