Award Winning Parisian Soul Singer Crosses the Atlantic in Search of Kerry Gordy, Launching His U.S. Career with His First Single, “FAMILY”

LOS ANGELES, CA – (May 13, 2014) – Kerry Gordy Records Music Group (KGR) has partnered with its first label, Red Moon. Red Moon includes Essai, a multi-talented, gold and platinum award-winning artist from Paris who is on a mission. Essai’s mission is to change the world through his music.

Kerry Gordy and Seanne Murray, Esq. created KGR, a division of Opportunity Builders, LLC, to take advantage of their entertainment contacts and expertise to create opportunities, change paradigms, and be a reflection of the good that’s in the world. Seanne, CEO of KGR, says, “It’s time to get pumped up and excited, time to feel the L-O-V-E and experience FAMILY!

Essai traveled across the ocean to find, meet, and work with music legacy, to become associated with a brand that he KNOWS is about love and about FAMILY. After months of searching and reaching out, he FINALLY made contact with a Gordy, Kerry Gordy…well, actually Juliet, his 14-year old daughter. That’s how the story really began. Juliet heard Essai’s music and MADE her father pay attention! Juliet said, “On a scale of 1 to 10 Essai gets an 11 and YOU HAVE TO SIGN HIM”. When Kerry listened, he was in awe, “ I’ve never experienced someone from overseas with so much soul”, says Kerry. “The fact that he writes, performs, produces and engineers everything totally blew me away.”

Essai, Kerry and Seanne bonded over their shared belief that music needs to send a message about love, connection and FAMILY rather than violence and negative imagery. Essai says, “We have a match made in heaven, the perfect team on the RIGHT mission”.

With that, a lifelong connection was forged. “Essai, one of the most passionate people I know, is here to bring positivity to the world, and make people feel good through his message, his music, and his voice”, says Seanne. “ The tone of KGR and the mission of Essai will be coming to you soon via our first release, FAMILY, on June 3rd.
