Biography

Toronto, Canada (2007 – present)

USS came together in Toronto in 2007.

“It’s not the content. It’s the model” says singer/songwriter/producer/arranger Ash Boo-Schultz who, along with DJ and hype man Human Kebab make up Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker (USS). It’s a philosophy that Ash lives by and one that drives USS’ unique style. The music is a tremendous amalgamation of every genre Ash has ever immersed himself in, sewn together with a folk singers gentle hand. There are the nuances of pop, driving danceable beats, ska, classical symphony and hip hop nestled beneath a voice evocative of Cobain’s tortured wail. The lyrics are clear and poetic, smoothly skating between themes of mental stability and metaphysical realities to love and the importance of being emotionally responsible to one’s self. The overall result is a kind of star gazing pop step -intrinsically uplifting and incredibly raw. Ash has an ability to take what exists around him, what he has learned through experience and what he hears and sees, and combine them in unexpected ways resulting in a new experience completely separate and distinct yet wildly familiar.

Welding the C:/ was conceived while Ash worked in a factory. His hands occupied by repetitious factory line work Ash listened to books on tape- philosophy and metaphysics, Neil Young, drum n bass, Monty Python, classical symphony, 50’s pop and hip hop and imagined an album. It is an illustrative example of Ash’s ability to think outside the box to create without confine- to take what has been given to him and make it work.

    Although the philosophy might not be great, it definitely works for them.
