In Essence

In Essence (occasionally referred to simply as I.E.) is a 5-member Canadian R&B group that has had success both in Canada and USA. The groups members, Dru, Pops, Smooth, Que and Touch all met in Toronto, Ontario in 1993. On a trip to NYC, In Essence met Funkmaster Flex and his manager and in 2001 they were signed to Franchise Entertainment. Shortly thereafter they released the single "You'll Never Find". The song garnered tremendous exposure in the US and aided in the success of Funkmaster Flex's Mix Tape Vol. 4. As a result of this exposure and success, In Essence signed a record Deal with Vik Recordings / BMG Canada and released their first album, The Master Plan, in 2003. In April 2004, In Essence won a Juno Award for R&B/Soul Recording of the Year. In June of that same year they took home an MMVA Award from MuchMusic for Best R&B Video Of The Year. The year also saw them win a SOCAN #1 Award for "Friend Of Mine" along with 2 Canadian Radio Music Award nominations.

Famous quotes containing the word essence:

    He is the essence that inquires.
    He is the axis of the star;
    He is the sparkle of the spar;
    He is the heart of every creature;
    He is the meaning of each feature;
    And his mind is the sky,
    Than all it holds more deep, more high.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The essence of man is, discontent, divine discontent; a sort of love without a beloved, the ache we feel in a member we no longer have.
