Brooks Hubbard - Acoustic Rock

I grew up in Enfield, a small town in New Hampshire near Dartmouth College. Growing up I discovered music at an early age when my dad noticed me tapping the beat to a TV show. Being a musician himself, my dad recognized the importance of this. I started out on drums around the age of three and then picked up guitar around twelve, teaching myself chords. I started writing songs around the age of 15 and started playing live shortly after.

My goals and dreams are to build a career off the songs I play and hopefully gain a few fans along the way. My music strives to make people happy: to cure them of their down times and keep them high when they're good. To all I wish Peace and Love!

Brooks Hubbard :)
