The best kept secret in music


"Key West the Newspaper"

Have you heard of Ben Usher? If not, get ready, you will. Ben is a young man with an enormous future. He plays guitar, writes, and sings on an incredibly professional level. His music is alternative, but very attractive to veteran rockers like moi. His CD is titled "Dead West" and contains some songs you are not likely to forget. The CD took nine months to make and was produced by a musical genius, Francois Gehin, whom many of you know.
His is some of the best work I've heard in years. Only three people played on it. Ben played guitar, keyboards, and sang his own backup. Fritz Sigler played additional guitar, and Francois played everything else.
Needless to say, I called our song plugger in Nashville as soon as I heard Ben's music. He wasn't there, but called me back from Canada. He's up there working on Jennifer Lopez's movie. Am I impressed? You bet! - Valerie Ridenour

Feeling a bit camera shy


Search no further, for it is Dead West that defines us as brothers and sisters. Cutting edge music from the depths of the soul. This music reaks of originality and screams to be listened to.

Homegrown in the northern tip of Idaho and influenced heavily by the Seattle grunge scene, Ben Usher brings his own brand of soul searing lyrics and guitar riffs to the front lines. Tackling topics of controversy and personal demons, his music makes tangible that which many of us can relate to.

Ben was recently showcased at the Hard Rock Cafe in Key West, FL and demonstrated that for a city saturated with music, Key West is missing one key element: originality. The show at the Hard Rock opened the ears and minds of those in attendance and created a core following that will undoubtedly grow to include countless scores of fans.

His music is available at CD, Sam Goody (in Key West), and most pay-to-play download sites (NewNapster, Imac Itunes, Rhapsody, etc.) via CD Baby's Digital Distribution Program.
