Born in Enfield, New Hampshire, and raised on Jackson Browne and Bruce Springsteen, Brooks Hubbard has always been proud of where he comes from. Rural New England provided him with the space he needed to be creative and grow. He started his live music career early, playing drums at his third grade ice cream social with his dad’s band. Picking up guitar at age 12, and writing songs at 15, Brooks was performing regularly right out of high school. He opened for blues legend, Robert Cray, and pop artist, KT Tunstall, while attending Keene State College and graduated in 2014, achieving a bachelor’s degree in Political Science; simultaneously releasing his first cd, “Press Play EP” produced by friend guitarist/engineer, Mike Ryan.

Hubbard had his sights on Los Angeles when he decided to take his career a step further and move to a more happening scene. Stopping in Nashville to see his friend bassist/engineer, Justin Kimball, Brooks ultimately decided, Tennessee was a good home-base to grow as a singer/songwriter. He never continued further west until his friend and mentor, singer/songwriter, Stephen Kellogg, took him on the “South, East, North, West” US tour in 2015-2016. Kellogg taught Hubbard about the hardships of a touring life; about the long drives and nearly sleepless nights, turning days into weeks, and weeks into months. But above all, that the true spirit and magic of music, was worth every mile.

Magic was soon to find Brooks once again, while back home for a summer in New England. Through a mutual friend, Hubbard met Los Angeles session guitarist and Jackson Browne band member, Val McCallum, in Vermont. The two paired up for an album release show of Brooks’ second album, “Start of Me” (produced by Mike Ryan) without ever playing a note together. They quickly gained a liking to each other’s company, performing several concerts that led to recording Hubbard’s newest record, “American Story” which McCallum produced and funded, hiring his friends, Los Angeles session greats, Bob Glaub, Pete Thomas, Greg Leisz, and Jeff Babko, to play on it.

“American Story” was independently released in late 2017, along with the emergence of a full fledged effort to pursue a serious role as leader of the newly formed, Brooks Hubbard Band. Members, Justin Kimball (bass/engineer), Nate Mould (drums), and Jeff Goodkind (keyboards), were part of former Nashville instrumental rock band, the Bedrock, backing Hubbard for a string of local shows before separating from guitarist, Drew Smithers, in the spring of 2017. By luck again, Hubbard found himself in a position to join forces with his best friends and form BHB.


Christy Lynn Band:

Influenced by the stories of folk music, the deep sorrow of the blues, and the free feeling of country and Americana music, Christy Lynn Band has created a new but familiar sound. Hailing from the mountains of Western North Carolina, they are debuting their new collection of songs that were written in 2017. Wild American Music writes, "Christy's voice alone is something you will never forget, but the band doesn't stop there in their seemingly effortless attempt to be remembered. This is not your average two-piece band. Their sound is full of life and their songwriting is unique in its own right leaving no reason for the listener to walk away from this song craving anything else but to hear it again."
