Breaktime For Francis / Bio

After the birth, implosion, and sometimes tumultuous end of several local bands and projects Jesse Guilliams decided if he couldn't get a group of people to stick together long enough to do any kind of touring that putting together a group of friends long enough for an album to be recorded would be the next best thing. In 2010 Jesse started work on what would become  Breaktime For Francis' debut album "Underdressed And Over Drinking". Starting the recording process not knowing who would record any of the tracks aside from the guitars. Jesse quickly started gathering friends to help with sessions. Upon the completion of the album he would schedule shows with which ever friends could make the shows under the name Breaktime For Francis. Over the holiday season of 2011 Jesse met Chris "C.C." Levy. After playing bass for a year C.C. Switched to drums and is now the longest running member since the bands inception. After two tours and due to lack of interest from touring members Jesse and C.C. Started touring as an acoustic act. After gaining enough attention playing as an acoustic act with the occasional full band line up to get a few opening slots for national acts the two were invited to Los Angeles by producer Mat Dauzat to record their next E.P. The two flew out on August 18th 2014. With only 12 days to record the guys started a grueling 16 hours a day schedule. While in conversation during production Jesse and C.C. Decided that for their upcoming touring they would start to perform as three piece. On August 31st in between connecting flights on the way back to Louisiana Jesse contacted Terry "T.O." Oliver about filling open position. Since T.O. Had previously filled in with the band before they knew he would be a good fit. Still awaiting an official release date for the upcoming album Breaktime For Francis is excited to get back to their favorite thing,  touring.
