A native of Reading, Pennsylvania, multi-instrumentalist Mike Hubbard's talents have taken him up and down the east coast over the last couple of years. He got his first taste of the business as a songwriting protege of Pat Pattison (John Mayer, Gillian Welch) at Berklee College of Music and quickly moved into the professional ranks after being accepted as a baritone into the renowned Cape Cod-based a cappella group, The Hyannis Sound.
Fresh out of college, Mike Hubbard released his first album in 2012 featuring all original works, including the crowd favorite, "Ozymandias." After a move to New York City, Mike has been taking Manhattan by storm - quickly becoming a highly sought after live act with headlining shows at venues like Rockwood Music Hall, the Mercury Lounge, Pianos, and the late Glasslands (#RIP) under his belt. His five piece band energizes rooms with a charisma and passion so often missing from live Indie/Pop acts, and has made him one of the premier, up and coming singer-songwriters in the five boroughs.
Hubbard's songs expertly navigate that elusive path of catchy melodies and choruses without sacrificing his thought-provoking and insightful lyrics, reminiscent of more veteran singer-songwriters. In the last year, Mike completed and released a Kickstarter-funded record titled "Still in the Wilderness," a collaboration with highly touted Brooklyn based producer, Jason Finkel (Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, John Mayer, BB King).
Most recently, Mike was hand selected by Converse to record some new songs in their Brooklyn Rubber Tracks studio. The resulting Synth Pop record, another joint venture with Finkel titled "Ghosts," was released in the late Fall of 2015.
