Special Interview: Kate Usher & The Sturdy Souls

theaussieword.com special interview with New York City’s Kate Usher & The Sturdy Souls

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? Since childhood my favorite thing to do was sing, both behind closed doors (aka the shower) or in front of whomever wanted to listen. My sister and I used to sing to the soundtrack of “A Walk To Remember” and my brother would be the judge. In my tween years, I fell in love with the infamous Hannah Montana thus sparking my love for pop music. As I got older I developed a deeper love for music and its many genres. In college I became the lead singer of a 34 piece Jazz band. Although college became rather lifeless to me; I knew I wanted more. Fortunately, I met Kevin (lead guitarist) on the beach playing his harmonica. After that the rest became history. I left college, moved out to Montauk, and began pursuing my career as a full time musician. I haven’t looked back since.
