Info for All This Is
All This Is is the keenly-awaited debut album from Kaya Usher – some thirty years in the making. Kaya Usher is finally seeing her late husband Gord Downie's long-held dream come into fruition with All This Is — her debut album with the Family Band, which is set to arrive on November 17 via Arts & Crafts. Today, she's shared the first single entitled "Heart Clicks."
"This is a very personal album for me," Usher said in a statement. "Not only because I get to jam out with my kids, but also because music has helped me to rise up and transcend what was holding me back. Everyone can connect to music. My hope is that this album helps others reach new heights too."
The 10 tracks contain haunting melodies and soul-searching lyrics that reflect Usher’s awakening through a Frequency modality she calls The Simplicity Platform. In her songs we encounter the sounds of unraveling, of epiphany, of metamorphosis. Yet, through the journeying we also (very much) feel and hear Drew. These are robust compositions, with ambient chords, hypnotic rhythms and elegant cadences. This masterful union is as rich as it is melodious. You will bop along and lose yourself, and all at the same time.
Kevin Drew met Usher in 2013 through Downie, and they soon became good friends. Their collaboration is heard throughout the album, in its robust compositions, ambient chords and hypnotic rhythms. Featuring her son Lou on keyboard and drums, her daughter Willo on harmonies and Usher playing classical guitar, organ, harmonica and providing vocals, All This Is is an offering almost thirty years in the making.
The project was recorded at The Bathouse Recording Studio — a studio owned and managed by The Hip, near Kingston on the shores of Lake Ontario. The album art was designed by Willo.
Kaya Usher & The Family Band
is a Canadian artist, musician and frequency work professional currently residing in Southern Ontario. Her work helps others to heal, discover and grow.
At 20, Montreal native Usher met Gord Downie at university, and fell madly in love. A talented lyricist and musician in her own right, Usher stayed home and raised the couple's four children. But in private, Usher and Downie would sing duets at family functions and share creative ideas. Their life together was a ride of experiences and themes that have made it into All This Is.
