Chester French in the UK

PRESS RELEASE- Chester French will release their debut album “Love The Future” on 8th June and will play a string of UK dates that very week, with a second London show on 20th June.

Signed to Pharrell WilliamsStar Trak label, Milwaukee-raised DA Wallach and Boston native Max Drummey are two friends who wrote and recorded their debut album Love The Future while in their final year studying at Harvard. Drawing on their love of everything from Sixties pop to hip hop and putting into practice the basics of songwriting they had learned from listening closely to Bowie and Beatles records, they put their unique songs to tape with Wallach handling most of the vocals and Drummey performing much of the music on an orchestra’s-worth of instruments. These recordings found their way into the hands of Don C, Kanye West’s manager, who offered them a deal. Competing offers from Jermaine Dupri and Pharrell Williams quickly followed. Encouraged by Pharrell’s promise of complete creative control, the duo signed to Star Trak.
