Essaï (pronounced S-I ) is a multifaceted artist. He is a songwriter, singer, keyboardist, music producer and an actor.
He composed his first songs at the age of 12.
France’s First Lady Bernadette Chirac asked him to write and produce the title “Un peu de moi”. That single went gold.
Essai then collaborated with Michel Legrand. They co-produced 25 songs together for “Les Demoiselles de Rochefort” and had a successful run at Palais des Congres in Paris.
He then wrote “Saimer est interdit” for the famous musical comedy “Le Roi Soleil” for Warner Music France. That album went double Platinum. Over 3 million tickets were sold during the three years of its run.
In 2008, he composed the soundrack for the film “Incontrolabe” starring Michael Youn.
Essai has also written and arranged musical pieces for many shows in one of the most famous and mythical Parisian Cabarets, “Bobino”. There he directed entire musical productions.
Today, Essai has decided to take a big step and cross the Atlantic to the United States where his musical influence originated. He loves the thought of collaborating with the cats from Detroit, Memphis and Los Angeles.
He put his soul into recording the new album. He is looking forward to meeting up with his new production partner, music veteran, Kerry Gordy, who promised to feed him some black eyed peas, candied yams, collard greens and fried chicken.
