SAVOIR FAIRE is a sound. SAVOIR FAIRE is a spell. SAVOIR FAIRE is an incantation. And SAVOIR FAIRE is guitarist/songwriter/street-poet Cliff Dealist of the Crenshaw neighborhood of L.A., California. He has released his sleazy, skeezy sound (which he calls skleeze) into the unsuspecting music universe for a decade now, starting with the gutter-crawling Hooray For Hollywood, then the varied, melodic Street Of A Thousand Pleasures (which featured a song on hit series Sons Of Anarchy) and now his “trashterpiece” double-album Black Trash, a statement of purpose which lays his life of rock & roll survival, literally, on the line. While Black Trash contains his usual subject matter of vivacious vixens, neon nights and life-on-the-run from the ever-encroaching “man", it also contains shards of hard-won wisdom and truth about the Black Experience and how to process it in a post-Obama world. In fact, while he and his longtime producer Luther Russell (Those Pretty Wrongs, Robyn Hitchcock, The Freewheelers) were cutting a track called "Little Dose”, the election was taking a particularly bad turn. “While I was already heartbroken over a relationship gone bad, now my thought was fuck it, I don’t care anymore, let’s put in the work". Black Trash is a culmination of a life lived through the music that saved his soul, chiefly the genius of Chuck BerryJohnny Thunders, Prince, The Isley Brothers, R. Kelly & Ty Dolla Sign, to name a few. In fact, it was the Black Godfather himself Andre Williams who first gave Savoir the confidence to find his voice. “Start taking this shit seriously, you’re on to something”, insisted the man who wrote “Bacon Fat”. Perhaps no other song represents the headspace of Savoir Faire than “(I’m So) Stressed Out”, a desperate cry for these times and what it feels like to be a butterfly under the ever-grinding wheel of a society that looks down on you for simply being born. Savor Faire is here to speak to the butterfly, speak to the street, like a lamplight illuminating the madness in the shadows. And of course, he’s always here for the ladies. ”We started Black Trash on Halloween nIght and ended on Valentine’s Day, and that was not an accident.” It certainly wasn’t, for Black Trash contains all the mysterious darkness and sexy romance of both.
