On the eve of Esser's NYC debut, FADER editor Julianne Escobedo Shepherd took him to our favorite spot in the park near our office to very earnestly grill him about his mixtape, West Side Story and, of course, his amazing hair. They were unfortunately not barefoot in the park, but there was a totally random girl suntanning on the concrete next to their table. Hopefully Esser enjoyed their lovely little jaunt, because next time he comes to the States he's gonna get mobbed like something out of Help. Read more about Esser's life and times in FADER #62, and check out a picture of the Esser jacket they're talking about after the jump.
