Brooks Hubbard Band has been a tight knit unit since their inception in Nashville, TN in 2015. Their music consists of an exciting mix of folk/americana, pop, funk, rock, blues, and soul. While touring the country promoting Brooks' newest release, ‘American Story,' they have captured audiences with their exhilarating balance of structure and improvisation through a focus on musicianship and love of songwriting.
Brooks is an experienced singer/songwriter who has toured nationally supporting Stephen Kellogg, as well as appearances opening for artists such as KT Tunstall, Robert Cray, and Lucy Kaplansky. Brooks recently recorded his third full-length album, 'American Story,' with friend and producer Val McCallum (Jackson Browne) at Sage and Sound Studios in Los Angeles. The album, released on October 27th, paints the picture of the good, the bad, and the ugly of America's past and present. In the four days it took to record this 12-track album, they brought to life songs of addiction, history, heartbreak, and love to tell America's story.
Rounded out with a few of Nashville's finest musicians, Justin Kimball (Bass, Engineer) and Nate Mould (Drums), the Brooks Hubbard Band has been honing their sound by continuously playing shows and writing songs since Brooks' move to Nashville. BHB finds musical inspiration in a wide range of artists ranging from The Allman Brothers Band, The Band, James Taylor, and Jackson Browne, to Jason Isbell, Jason Mraz, and John Mayer. The band has held or does hold regular gigs in Nashville at various venues including The Cowan, The Family Wash, The 5 Spot, Alley Taps, as well as multiple appearances at the iconic Whiskey Jam. When they're not playing around Nashville they play venues around the country such as The Evening Muse (Charlotte, NC), The Tin Pan (Richmond, VA), The Walnut Room (Denver, CO), Brigg's Opera House (White River Junction, VT), Molly Malone's (Los Angeles, CA), Eastside Bar and Grill (Portland, OR), The Lost Leaf (Phoenix, AZ), Loretta's Last Call (Boston, MA), Hennesey Tavern (San Diego, CA), The Cave (Chapel Hill, NC), Gerstle's Place (Louisville, KY), The Elbo Room (Chicago, IL) and Rockwood Music Hall (New York, NY) to name a few. 'American Story' is available for purchase and streaming on CD Baby, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, YouTube, Soundcloud, and all other major platforms. Since the release of 'American Story' BHB has toured extensively from coast to coast promoting the album consistently winning over venues and audiences they come in contact with.
"...This confident entertainer crafts hook-laden songs with a sophistication and emotional heft that has made him one of the fastest rising singer/songwriters in the Northwest." Lisa Lepine, Promotion Queen
