I've been digging USS for over a decade, so when lead singer and song writer Ashley Buchholz agreed to come on Toronto MIke'd in the early days, it was an absolute thrill. Here's episode 95 with Ash from USS.
Tonight, I was invited to a private birthday party for the band as they celebrate 10 years. They've got a great sound and they really are sweethearts. Ash told me with all the sincerity he could muster that his interview with me was the best one he's ever done. I choose to believe him.
It was a birthday party, so you can bet there were cupcakes.
On my ride home, there was a beautiful rainbow over the city. I had to stop and take a pic.
Here's that first USS single I heard, over 10 years ago. It still sounds fresh.
