The DARK ESQUIRE’s Biography
The DARK ESQUIRE aka Darkesq is Brian C. Repetto aka BCR.
After 15 years of leading the Art-Rock/Garage-Pop/Post-whatever combo DUMBWAITERS
BCR felt it was time to move on and go « solo » with an emphasis on doing something
musically/creatively different from that of the « Rock Band » formula.
Inspired by a deep love of Synth-Pop, Early Electronic and Progressive Rock, 70’s & 80’s Disco,
and the New Wave/New Romantic era as well as the current scene of artists
such as Glass Candy and Lindstrom putting out their interpretations of the same styles
The DARK ESQUIRE idea was hatched in a frenzy of post-alcoholic future-euphoria.
Several rough 4-track demos were recorded in an improvised fashion circa early 2007
and a Myspace page was immediately set up with one of these demos, a tune called « Situation »
catching the attention of THISISNOTANEXIT label founder Simon A. Carr.
THISISNOTANEXIT subsequently signed up The DARK ESQUIRE much to the delight of BCR.
BCR is currently working at home and in the studio on The DARK ESQUIRE’s THISISNOTANEXIT full-length debut
with collaborator and former DUMBWAITERS multi-intrumentalist James Bess lending a hand with co-production.
A LIVE line-up of The DARK ESQUIRE is also currently in the works for a possible summer 2010 debut.
