Straight Company began their odyssey over thirty years ago as a concept in the mind of one man. Their sound is just as sharp, vivid, and intense as it was in the beginning. They have only gotten better with time. From the moment this group mounts the stage and before a single note is sang, the audience senses that something special is about to happen. They are not disappointed! Something special always happens when Straight Company is present.
What Essej (the Group's Founder & Leader) wanted all those many years ago was the blended sounds of his African heritage with the sounds of the American street scene to create a new and exciting style and sound that is uniquely Straight Company. The result is truly astounding and very, very special.
