Art-pop singer/songwriter George Usher was born in Cleveland where his early demo recordings gained local airplay while he was still in his teens. He had already cut enough demo material to fill out a good 30 albums before he relocated to New York in 1977, soon forming the power-pop band the Decoys.
Described by the Village Voice as “one of New York’s best pop craftsmen,” Usher collaborated on songs over the next few years with a variety of New York area performers.
Usher was diagnosed with Cancer in 2010. Because of chemo treatments, he wasn’t able to use his hands or play instruments for over two years. During that time, he composed 12 lyrics full of reflection and reverie that Lisa Burns has put to music. The result is a new song-cycle, The Last Day Of Winter.
Still recovering, Usher has slowly returned to performing, alongside Burns. They have recorded the entire Last Day Of Winter song cycle for release. In September 2014, a video for one of the songs, More Than That I Cannot Say was made available for viewing at www.thelastdayofwinteralbum.com. George Usher and Lisa Burns released The Last Day Of Winter on cd and all over the internet in early 2015.
The reviews for The Last Day Of Winter have all been ecstatic!. Go to George and Lisa’s website: http://www.thelastdayofwinteralbum.com to see the video, live show photos and all the enthusiastic press!

I am a native New Yorker (upstate NY, but it still counts!) who has always known I had to be in the biz of show. I started my young "career" in ballet classes taking with teachers such as Miss Sandy, Miss Tracey and Miss Kim- you get the idea. Then one day in pointe class a dancer fell screaming in pain. Miss Kim went over and with the loudest echoing noise ever heard popped the girls' knee cap back in place. Oh no. "Dance career" over. So my love of acting and singing went into full bloom (I still "move" very well!). I went to college for drama at SUNY New Paltz. I moved to Manhattan the day after I graduated and never looked back. I have worked professionally since and have been lucky enough to work in many amazing theaters with fantastic people. I have had the opportunity to work on a variety of new and original projects. I love creativity and the artistic community.
Independent singer/songwriter Delaney Gibson’s unique style of confessional, theatrical-pop music is on full display with her new album Tall Like the Tree (2014). She wrote over 72 songs in her Bronx apartment, while living and defining her sound in New York City. When it came time to record, Delaney turned to her close friend and ingenious Producer, Joshua Bartholomew. After two months they left his Los Angeles studio with 11 brave and intimate tracks.
Despite all the professional work her vocal ability has provided, her real passion has always been her own songwriting. She has released two full length albums of her original music, The Worst Kind of Way and Hurricanes and Forget Me Nots. Her third album, Tall Like the Tree, is slated for release in early 2014. With her own brand of Torch/Pop she blends the theatrical sensibilities of Rufus Wainwright, effortlessly with the unabashed prowess of Florence + the Machine. A woman with soul and substance, Delaney is ready to release her new music on the world.
