About the Artists

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) and Nate Mould (drums), 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.

Music has taken Ben Fuller’s life and made it into something he never would have dreamed. Growing up in Southern Vermont, on his family dairy farm, where he learned about hard work and a passion he saw first-hand from his father, he started singing at a young age to pass the time. Well, the song just never stopped and somewhere between the farm and college, he picked up a guitar and never looked back.

In 2015, Ben was involved in a beautiful yet devastating drug-fueled relationship which led him to understand better, the other side of the disease. In addition, come 2017, he abruptly lost his best friend to a drug overdose and his entire outlook on life shifted.

Motivated to change, he moved to Nashville to pursue his career as a singer/songwriter in late 2018.  Falling face first into his music and a new-found relationship with Jesus led him to begin writing with a burning desire to help individuals who struggle with addiction. Today, his heart continues to fill with stories of loss, hope and love as he travels across our country to sing his story as well as the stories of those who can no longer.

Ryland Fisher is a Chicago-bred, Nashville-based signer, songwriter, and producer whose skill set ranges from modern country and pop to vintage hard rock.

Among his growing list of songwriting credits, he’s penned such songs as Stephanie Quayle’s Billboard Country-charting “Whatcha Drinkin’ Bout”, which charged out of the gate as a Top 10 Most Added song at country radio (Mediabase). He’s also written songs by Jojo Siwa tour support, The Belles (“My Mother’s Daughter”), Spotify New Boots feature, Kurt Stevens (“I Already Know”, “Once in a Blue Moon”), Sandra Lynn, John Stanislawski, Julie Eddy, Colin Lockey and Andrew Butcher, to name a few. While always looking to broaden his musical experience and never one to be a stranger to the studio world, Ryland’s also busy working on producing a number of up-and-coming contemporary country artists. The single, “Yes Girl” by Julie Eddy, was not only co-written but produced by Ryland as well, marking the beginning of his foray into becoming an all-encompassing musical auteur of his genre’s generation.

When the prolific writer isn’t creating the music of tomorrow, he also releases his own material, which started in 2019 with the country/acoustic-rocker, “Only Happens Once,” and followed with “I Don’t Need Anything” and “Photograph”, with each track more well-received than the last. Look for a plethora of new collaborations and releases in the coming months and years, as the young writer shows no sign of slowing down.
