Esprit de Corps

The members of LA’s Esprit de Corps have plenty of experience—producer/musician Fred Card is a long time collaborator of Earl Zero’s who has produced for Tanya Stephens among others, while vocalist Cherry is the soul singer formerly known as Cherokee (check her out on Soul Train). But as a unit, they’re brand new. After impressing us with their curious take on lovers rock on “Is It Too Late” (from their debut EP Be Easy) and the doo-wop/ska hybrid “Cherry,” we’re eager to hear what they have in store next.
