Nikolai Fraiture Short Bio

Nikolai Fraiture (November 13, 1978 in New York) He is the bassist in the band The Strokes originated in New York. He is Franco-Russian and speaks fluent French. His mother was a teacher and his father a security guard. Fraiture may be the only Stroke who did not have a privileged and significant childhood – he and five other relatives all lived in a twenty room apartment. He has a sister named Elizabeth, 13 years younger than him and an older brother named Pierre.

He attended kindergarten and elementary school with his best friend and future bandmate Julian Casablancas. Later, he attended the French Institute of New York (Lycée Français De New York).

Although Fraiture has been interested in music since childhood, he only started playing bass at 19 years old. His grandfather had bought him one as a graduation gift, but Fraiture gave it to Casablancas. It was not until a year later, when he contracted the spotted fever (Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever) in a youth hostel in New Orleans, that he began to play seriously. By then, he was already attending Hunter College with future bandmate Nick Valensi, who wrote an article about Fraiture dealing with the disease in the school newspaper. Shortly after, he joined his friends Casablancas, and Fabrizio Moretti forming a band. He met Albert Hammond Jr. in subsequent meetings.
