Biography

David Usher (born on April 24, 1966) is a British-born rock singer-songwriter, and renowned humanist, who lived for a number of years in Montreal, but then moved to the East Village in Manhattan, New York City. In 2007 David and family moved back to Montreal permanently after having a holiday there. Formerly the frontman of the Canadian band Moist, he more recently embarked on a solo career.

David Usher was born in Oxford to an ethnic Thai Buddhist, artist Samphan Usher and a Jewish Montrealer, Dan Usher, who is an economist at Queen’s University.[1] He has relocated to Malaysia, New York, California and Thailand since early childhood before his family settled in Kingston, Ontario. He attended high school at Kingston Collegiate and Vocational Institute.

Attending university at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia, Usher joined Moist in 1993 and their 1994 debut release, Silver, went quadruple platinum in Canada. As the lead singer of the band, he shot to stardom with his soulful voice and vaguely exotic good looks.

After Moist’s multi-platinum follow-up, Creature, was released in 1996, David took some time during the band’s hiatus to record his debut solo album, Little Songs, released in 1998. That same year he married photographer and actress Sabrina Reeves, with whom he is still living. Together they have a daughter, Coco, who was born on January 12, 2003.

    "Black Black Heart" 2.0 is nice but almost the same as 1.0 . Only the tempo is a bit different with some additional rock guitars, in a Lenny Kravitz style. The classical choir is still taken from Leo Delibes - Flower Duet / Lakme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Qx2lMaMsl8 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIR9geLqwGU - classical song, often played along the flights of British Airways )

    One artist who has lasting power in a multitude of ways. Can listen to his albums non-stop and still enjoy every song... I've been listening to him for nearly 15 years and he is still one of my most influential artists. David Usher - you are my music hero! :) Keep writing!!
