Hailing from the small Canadian town of Gananoque, Nolan Hubbard is making a name for himself as a prominent young singer/songwriter. He started playing guitar at the age of 11, learning mostly classic rock and metal music. Eventually as he matured he started developing a different taste in music and a new playing style that catered itself more to the acoustic guitar. His singing career actually started in theatre as he got one of the lead roles in his high schools musical theatre production during his final year. There was always a passion for music and art in Nolan’s life, but when he first started strumming along and singing his favourite songs he knew he had found his calling. Currently he is travelling between Toronto and Nashville working on his debut full length album scheduled to come out later this year. His warm finger picking/slap style guitar playing accompanied by a soothingly soft and melodic voice create a unique but current sound that caters to crowds of all ages and social groups. Drawing from a large pool of different genres his sound has been described as feel-good acoustic pop with influences from jazz, funk, soul, folk and reggae music. His songs have a healthy mix of upbeat tempos that keep crowds captivated and moving to go along with his laid back easy-listening repertoire. Music has brought Nolan to venues of all different kinds in Ontario and more recently in some of the major cities across Canada on a summer tour. The future looks bright for this fresh new artist on the rise.
