fairview began as a whim towards the end of 1999. Three friends, Bob, Trevor and Sean began writing songs for fun. The idea of being a real band was never fully realized at this point, it was kind of just a pipe dream. When they songs started getting better and they got tighter, it was obvious that it was going somewhere. Fairview ended sometime in 2004, with Bob and Grace as the only members from the original lineup. Over the years they toured with No Motiv, the Benjamins, Showoff and others.
