Outside The Box: Chester French

In this week's Outside The Box we have selected one of Pharrell's newest signings as the ones to watch. Introducing Chester French. Maxwell Drummey and D.A. Wallach comprise Chester French and they probably don't sound like what you would expect. These two Harvard grads have a unique sensibility for popular music which evokes a sound that is The Beatles meets Jamiraquai. Named after sculptor Daniel Chester French, who designed the statue at the Lincoln Memorial, these guys began recording together in their dorm room at Harvard and were signed to Pharrell's Star Trak label last year after an intense bidding war between Pharrell, Kanye West, and other label heads. Check out their lead single, "She Loves Everybody", below and hit the guys up at their myspace page.
