So when I write out these descriptions these are usually just what runs through my mind at any given moment, right now my mind is empty, wait, no it's not, I still think that you are a bucket of shit and that your horrible bloodline should be wiped off of the face of the earth, your very being is an affront to me and everything I stand for, see I don't believe in God, I don't pray, but I do believe in the power of the mind and actions through strong thought, so I put a certain amount of energy and mental awareness aside to put into wishing your horrible end and downfall, it may just be me wishng your death, it may be more, but overall someone wants you, dead, and isn't that what matters?
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.
It's nothing personal really, I just don't like the lot of you because something in my head tells me that you are all bags of human shit. when I think about it I would trade the lot of your lives to bring back Giggles cookies, remember them? Those were tasty, anyway, I'm talking mass ritualistic sacrifice, like have you all disembowled at an alter to Nabisco and a big giant stone Giggle cookie, man those things were good, you on the other hand never were "good", but boy oh boy, those cookies let me tell you something there!
