Chester French???????????

Get to know them. There a group that I think will do big things in 09. They already got a lil buzz building, well bigger then a lil s Pharrell and Jermaine Dupri had a tug of war trying to sign these guys (FYI Pharell won *throws up the strar trak sign*).

From Wiki: Chester French is an American pop music band consisting of two members, Maxwell Drummey and D.A Wallach. They met as college students at Harvard University, naming their band after sculptor Daniel Chest French, who designed the statue at the Lincoln Memorial. Milwaukee-raised Wallach and Boston native Drummey quickly found a lot of shared ground in musical tastes and philosophies and before long formed a band with three other classmates, playing various campus functions, eventually moving in a direction heavily influenced by classic British Northern Soul. Over the summer both stayed in Cambridge, working hard at songwriting. But when school resumed, they realized that the material went way beyond the basic guitar-bass-drums-piano format of the band, and the duo continued the work themselves, Wallach handling most of the vocals, Drummey performing much of the music on multiple instruments, supplemented with the occasional specialist guest – and both taking production and engineering duties for recordings.

After the paring down the group, its current lineup set out to learn how to record and produce music. They took on jobs at Harvard's Quad Sound Studios, which is where R & B producer and fellow Harvard Alum Ryan Leslie also got his start.

Anywho here's there music, hope you like...
