This eponymous debut blends folk, country, blues, soul and funk with classic singer/songwriter hooks to startling effect. Heavily indebted to legendary artists Tom Petty, Jackson Browne, Van Morrison and Neil Young, Hubbard ranks alongside the likes of Ryan Adams as one of the finest contemporary country-rock front men. –R2 Magazine

NOTES
"Dan Hubbard and the Humadors is a truly exceptional album that needs to be heard! The atmosphere is right and makes me long for Gruene Hall again, and the many gigs I saw there that sounded just like this album." –Mr. Blue Boogie (5 out of 5 stars)

Life is Sweet

by Dan Hubbard

Released 2007
Released 2007
This is the most stripped down, acoustic record that Dan has released. His first solo album. If you've ever had your heart broken, you will love "Life is Sweet."
NOTES
"As far as vocalists go, my personal voice hero is Gary Louris from the Jayhawks. The hand of God has touched that soul and there are a few times I hear the essence of Gary coming through on the vocal tracks. In terms of singing, this is the highest compliment I know to give." –Openingbands.com

Released 2005
Released 2005
Roots rock from the midwest. The Hubbards are fans of the great rock songwriters and draw upon those influences to create something new yet familiar.
NOTES
From Openingbands.com:
The Hubbards are best served chilled or on ice. Take one part each: Tom Petty, Wilco, Lyle Lovett and garnish with a dash of a Stevie Ray vibe on leads. Serve shaken not stirred. So right now I'm sitting in my Las Vegas hotel in a drunken stupor. I'm not sure that there is going to be any coherent worthwhile thought involved in this review but, I'm going to do my best. …
