George Usher, The End And The Beginning: 1990-2009



(Strothard Bulldog Productions)

George Usher has been a fixture on the NY scene since the early 80’s, when his powerpop band, The Decoys, were mainstays of the CBGB/village clubs.

While putting in stints with local legends, Beat Rodeo, the Bongos, and The Schramms, Usher formed House Of Usher and The George Usher Group, releasing nine well-received albums (including two collaborations with fellow New York songwriter, Edward Rogers) between 1990 and 2009.

Some of the albums, like Neptune and Miracle School, were only released in Europe. Others, including Dutch April, Days of Plenty, and Yours And Not Yours, were released in the U.S. by Parasol Records, a small independent label in Illinois. The two Edward Rogers collaborations (Sunday Fables and You Haven’t Been Where I’ve Been) were also released on independent labels and under Edward’s name, at Usher’s insistence, even though they were the work of both artists.

Now, Strothard Bulldog Productions is pleased to announce the release of a two-CD, 43-song compilation, drawing from all nine George Usher releases: George Usher, The End And The Beginning: 1990-2009.

Included are House of Usher’s seminal recording of “River To River,” (Richard Barone, The Bongos) and Usher’s powerpop version of his own, “Not The Tremblin’ Kind,” (Laura Cantrell), neither of which has been released in the states before.

It’s a cascading, career defining collection of melodic power-pop, guitar-driven folk-rock, and lush chamber-pop covering 20 years of making music on the New York scene.

George Usher, The End And The Beginning: 1990-2009 will be released worldwide in 2017.
