Biography

Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker
The Best Band You’ve Never Heard Of

To say that 2008 has been a year of change, growth, and accomplishment for Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker would be an understatement to say the least. The Toronto-based band’s single ‘Hollowpoint Sniper Hyperbole’ quickly moved from light to heavy rotation on CFNY and has been the number 1 most spun single for the last five weeks, they were added to The Agency Group’s roster, opened up for Bedouin Soundclash, their video for 'Hollowpoint Sniper Hyperbole' has been added to Much Music, and landed the headlining spot for 102.1 The Edge’s Next Big Thing (this Friday at Sound Academy), as well as the headlining spot on EDGEFEST’s second stage this summer.

"They are no doubt, 100%, the best kept secret in Canada's independent scene" - Barry Taylor, 102.1 The Edge
"You will be blown away by his powerful, sincere, poetic lyricism combined with really catchy, danceable, reggae-influenced chops." - Eye Weekly
"A pumping juggernaut of sensory gluttony" - Markham Economist & Sun

Fronted by master craftsman Ash Boo-Schultz (vocals, guitar, erhu, beats) and turntablist hype man extraordinaire Human Kebab, this Toronto based duo demonstrate a remarkable proficiency for erupting dance floors and eliciting widespread audience sing-a-longs. Popstep, drum and strum, progressive dance folk, the music is a tremendous amalgamation of every genre Ash and Kebab have ever immersed themselves in. There are the elements of pop, drum and bass, ska, folk, and grunge with smatterings of classical symphony and world music in between.

In a time of ultra choreographed, perfectly made up vacant pop stars, USS is a welcome alternative: a raw talent, disarmingly sincere, thoughtful, self aware, and without pretense. USS has established a new model – where a live show is inspiring, entertaining and compelling, where the artists are human beings.

Lyrics

Hollowpoint Sniper Hyperbole

Written By: Ash Buchholz

Thoughts seem to stumble out of my mouth
i can’t seem, to stop and talk to them
Fear tries, to pierce the armor of truth
Hollow Point Sniper Hyperbole

i can’t, seem
to follow a pendulum
and there must be organic cures for me
Report to base
Instrumental case
Here’s the map to my oubliette

Once more,
i’m flying with Brian my friend
Hold me,
Bonavista baby
Moose meat,
neighbored a medley of beans
Screech me

i’s the boy that build the boat
i’s the boy that sailed her
i’s the boy that sunk the ship
You’re the one that saved me,
With love

You make me flow
You help me to grow
You make me glow
You help me to know

You make me feel like,
a shooting star
You make me feel like,
a porno star
You hold me closer still,
when I get paranoid
You give your hand to hold,
when I lose control

Your like my compass and
we always find our way
You bring your smile and wipe
away my shitty day
This sudden alchemy
has got me holding on
Stand-by auxillary
Signals holding strong

You make me so content
with everything I am
You bring me up and in
when I’m down and out
Heroine of confidence
when I ‘m strung out on doubt
If I’m not making sense
you spit the riddles out

Your like my compass and
we always find our way
You bring your smile and wipe
away my shitty day
This sudden alchemy
has got me holding on
Stand-by auxillary
Signals holding strong

Your so my everyday
Your so my sweetest love
Your so the greatest change
I’m always dreaming of

Your like my compass and
we always find our way
You bring your smile and wipe
away my shitty day
This sudden alchemy
has got me holding on
Stand-by auxillary
Signals holding strong

2 15/16ths

Written By: Ash Buchholz

You’re like iodine chasing all the storms away
You’re like a black-ops licorice masquerade
You’re like a buzz that’s looking for a bee
You’re like a tack in a paper-clip factory
to me

You’re like a diatribe calling on a quest for me
You’re like the ideal rainy day activity
You’re like a sine, emphasis in green
You’re like lady bugs turning into jelly beans

You’re like iodine chasing all the storms away
You’re like a black-ops licorice masquerade
You’re like a buzz that’s looking for a bee
You’re like a tack in a paper-clip factory
to me

You’re like a trance for looking at a better way
You’re like a test maze keeping all the me’s at bay
You’re like a play that’s like a pen
You’re like M.C. Escher but a ten

You’re like iodine chasing all the storms away
You’re like a black-ops licorice masquerade
You’re like a buzz that’s looking for a bee
You’re like a tack in a paper-clip factory
to me

you’re like 2 15/16ths
to the north east of me
