Biography

“When I first heard Chester French, I felt like I had stumbled upon two geniuses,” says Pharrell Williams, who signed the duo to Star Trak / Interscope records in the Spring of 2007. “It’s been a long time since I’ve heard a project teeming with this sort of musicality and originality,” he continues. “You’re going to watch history unfold with these guys. I feel it in my gut.”

A year ago, Pharrell’s auspicious blessing was only a dream for D.A. Wallach and Maxwell Drummey, both 21-year old Harvard seniors at the time. But when their demo found its way to Kanye West last December, Chester French quickly became one of the most hotly pursued new artists of the decade, attracting offers from Kanye, Jermaine Dupri, Pharrell and Jimmy Iovine. That same demo has become the basis for what will surely be the most talked about debut record of 2008.

Tentatively titled Love the Future, the album was written, arranged, produced and engineered entirely by D.A. and Max in their dorm’s basement. Full of intricately imagined pop songs that fuse lush string arrangements with modern beats, it is the product of lifetimes of music making and listening.

D.A. was raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and has been a performer for as long as he can remember.

    New album is good! Very different from Love the Future but still good. My favs so far are Next Big Thing, Drop, Just Another Guy, and Interesting Times

    I've just listened the new album, and honestley: I'm a little disappointed. I think only interesting times is good (especially the acoustic version), and black girls is ok. It's a shame, I hope the next album will be more like the first.

    The awesome new single has almost made up for the the three year gap. Well played CF.

    I remember seeing them open for blink 182 and being pretty fun live. But most of the crowd couldn't care less.
