David Usher1966年4月24日在英国出生，他是一个歌手，词作者，和知名的人道主义者。受家庭的影响，母亲是艺术家及泰国佛教徒，父亲是加拿大Queen’s University的经济学教授及犹太人，他所写歌词的主题很多是宗教，信仰，政治和人道主义，希望每个人都能以多角度的方位来看待他人和事物。他本人也是在温哥华的Simon Fraser University的政治系 (Political Science) 毕业的。
2005的4月，David Usher的第四张专辑，If God had Curves。从专辑的名字就可以看出，宗教是很大的一个主题。这张专辑的主打歌曲, Love will save the day，歌曲里录制了女性主义者Gloria Steinem在1971的演讲 "Address to the Women of America." Love will save the day, Wolves和Everything Alright by Me Now都是很推荐的歌曲。
Former Moist frontman David Usher has always made what is perhaps best known as sensitive new-age guy's pop music; catchy songs with deep female appeal. The thing that separates Usher from other hearthrob types is that he isn't formulaic; his love of music is genuinely sourced from sincerity.
Usher's fourth solo record, If God Had Curves is as simple and un-slick as anything he has ever done; it isn't underproduced, just raw and honest. Usher has an obvious fondness for the simple-structured love song and of bare-bones human stories. The disc’s first track "Long Goodbye" is fully indicative of the influences of other inspirations on his own craft. The song includes a gorgeous, warm guitar solo from Canadian songwriting legend Bruce Cockburn, playing over a loop of a sample from punk rock/new wave troupe Le Tigre. The result is old-wood warm and beautiful. Track two starts with a sound clip of respected feminist Gloria Steinem; so begins the disc's first single "Love Will Save The Day" a joyful, lyrically challenging number disguised as a pop song. Bonus points to the singer for the song "Hey Kids", a whimsical, sardonic musical march highlighted by Tegan Quin, of Tegan & Sarah fame. As is the case with other David Usher records, the one thing missing is his preference for writing pretty-sounding prose and societal commentary over really pulling out personal stories from the rawest part of his soul—but there’s always hoping.
