Newark shoo-fly singer sacrifices for success by Reva McEachern Thursday April 09, 2009, 5:43 AM
For every person that wants to break into the music industry, there's a story of when the music bug bit them. Raised between New York City and Clarendon, Jamaica, Elly Ess, born Lester Hoosong, developed a passion for hip-hop and reggae music at an early age. "When I was a young boy in Jamaica, one night I was awakened by the sounds of music and a cheering crowd coming from my fathers bar. When I snuck downstairs and peeked around the corner, I saw a local artist performing for an eager audience. At that moment, I realized my dream was to become a performer," Elly Ess said. When he moved to Newark 20 years ago, he dedicated himself to making his dream a reality. But Newark provided a rude awakening for Elly Ess. "Newark is filled with talent, but most of it is unseen and unheard. I've seen people promoting their music and whether its good or bad, it's dismissed right away," Elly Ess explained. In Jamaica, there's more support for artists who are "deserving" of attention. In Newark, hip-hop artists lack both unity and popular support, according to Elly Ess. Since the artist has resided in Newark, he's often considered giving up music and putting his back plan into action; opening a restaurant. "I've had a few incidents when it got rough. But then it takes a little bit
By "we," Elly Ess means he and his brother, producer Supah Shane. During the past 10 years, Elly Ess and Supah Shane have collaborated with various reggae artists including; Capleton, Richie Spice, Mavado, Vybz Kartel, Aidonia, Munga, Bling Dawg, Marvin Priest and Kaye Styles. Recently, Elly Ess and his promotional team Rock Star Entertainment & Music released a remake of the 1987 classic Bad Boys by Inner Circle made popular by the television program COPS. The track features Vybz Kartel and popular hiphop artist Jim Jones, which Elly Ess hopes will help Elly Ess continue to carve out a niche in the hip-hop arena. Also, his single "Shoo Fly" can currently be heard on popular New York urban radio stations, such as Power 105.1. He contributes his success to being humble, dedicated and marketing-savvy. "We go 100 percent. Me and my brother, we sit down and talk about what we've done and what we want to do. We've seen talented people promote and go halfway with it. They may press up a few CDs and have a few flyers, but that's where we differ. We sacrifice a lot," he said. "Right now, I drive a ,94 truck. I could do the whole flashy pulling-up-with-bigrims thing, but I don't. I sacrifice so I can put back into my career," Elly Ess continued. Elly Ess is also working on an EP collaboration titled, "United We Stand" with his brother due out this spring. And he's shooting the video for the first single off the EP, "Money" at the end of this month.
