- Lance Baker Fent is a prolific guitarist, singer, songwriter and entertainer; a former and current member of "The Peanut Butter Conspiracy", he is pursuing a solo career to showcase his songs, which he brands ”Philosophy Rock”.

 

- His lyrics are informed by a lifetime of curiosity regarding our origins, the source of our existence, the full use of all our faculties, and the infinite nature of our resources. Lance sings to the innate oneness of all humanity and all matter, to infinity and beyond.

 

- These messages have been carried out through farming, ranching, railroading, touring, recording, building, developing and writing. “We all have a gift: a huge brain, mind, and spirit. It’s what we do with our gift that defines us.”

 

- Some of his previous bands affiliations were with "Spontaneous Combustion", "Good Times" and "Midlife Crisis" (with whom he recorded Breakthru, American and Drifter). In 2009 he formed a power trio, Lance Baker Fent and the Conspiracy, keeping Maryvonne on bass and adding Pat Martin on drums. His last CD, "Philosophy Rock", is the first child of that band, and "Ain’t No Rules" expands on that philosophy.

 

 

Maryvonne’s life has been eclectic; She grew up in Paris, studied music in India for five years, which led to her teaching at Wesleyan University and UCLA. Living in California she fell in love with electric bass and exchanged her saris for platform boots to play rock-and-roll.

 

An ethnomusicologist with a specialty in South Indian Music, she shares her time between playing bass and writing novels featuring her beloved India. Two of them, Mango Blood and The 35? Dowry are soon to be published. She also has digitalized a wealth of photos and recordings she collected in India, Nepal, Sikkim and Kashmir. Her long term goal is to produce a documentary appraising the timeless nature of Indian music in the midst of cultural changes experienced since India’s Independence in 1947.

 

She wrote and recorded soundtracks for movies on her Indian instrument (the veena) and played bass in a series of bands including "The Total Eclipse", "Californa Gold", and "Bijou" before playing with Lance.

 

 

Pat took and interest in drumming in grade school. When he was eight he discovered David Grohl. He practiced banging around on pots and pans and received his first snare drum at nine and a full kit at eleven. He then started drumming with his older brother Pete and friends. Later, he formed his own metal band Andalusha and thrashed the Arizona metal scene.

 

In 2008, Pat moved to California and attended the Musician’s Institute. He met Lance Baker Fent at Starbucks. Within a few weeks he performed with Lance and Maryvonne at the Canyon Club and has been active in bringing Lance’s compositions to life ever since. His playing has evolved dramatically to accommodate all the nuances of Lance’s writing style.

 

Pat has also been active in L.A., drumming for other bands and projects. Beside Lance’s band he is currently active with Others, a punk and metal infused rock band, as well as Billy Jack, and on occasion Marishi Ten.
