Dan Hubbard and the Humadors
Dan Hubbard and the Humadors
Dan Hubbard and The Humadors are based in our hometown of Bloomington, Illinois. In 2003, the group released their first full-length album No Worries and ever since graduating Illinois State University in 2007, music has been his full-time job.

The group has since gone on to release seven albums and has toured the Midwest extensively as well as both coasts. The group their first taste of success with the well-received release of his 2011 album, The Love Show. The album appeared on the Top 50 Roots Rock Chart and you still occasional hear it being played on the radio.

Being compared to the late, great musicians such as Tom Petty, John Mellencamp, and Jackson Browne, Dan and his accompanied band have the ability to take fans back to the small town country roads in which they were born and paint pictures while his finger picking acoustic style grabs the roots of American folk music.
The August
The August
the august are clearing their own path of music that runs between American roots and American pop music. Determined in their approach to define a strong musical identity, the august, put on a charging live show that is reminiscent of 70s era country rock infused with the pop sensibilities of today.Led by the soulful vocals of Jacky Dustin, drummer Tim Good and multi instrumentalist Wojtek Krupka, these three strong willed musicians desire to leave an indelible mark on each listener they come across.It is their collection of musical personalities that renders itself into their identity as the august: Jacky’s sweet-tooth for Mariah coupled with a fascination of Janis Joplin, Wojtek’s affection for all things quirky and anything Neil Young, besides that Tron album, and Tim’s quest within himself to find the backbeat of ‘The Big Pink.’Yet, all three members share a relentless and uncompromising love of music, the music they play together, and is indicative in their uprooting from hometown Chicago to Nashville, where they made the leap to further focus on a life of music, away from the comforts of friends and family.However, Chicago did treat the august quite dearly while living there. They played to sell out crowds at known city clubs Schubas and Martyrs, a number of street festivals, most notably Chicago Country Music Fest and Taste of Chicago, and released two albums during their stay which received local and national acclaim.Yet, the august of then was plagued by the industry’s inability to place a label on the band, making them difficult to market, ultimately tarnishing their outlook on success, in which case the august felt if they were to survive, they needed some change of scenery.The august moved to Nashville in early 2009 and took an intermission from touring, deciding it best to use their time reworking and redeveloping their songwriting.Their diligence proved successful and the band found their work to be more sophisticated in arrangement, much leaner lyrically without sacrificing content, and they also embraced their ranging musical choices as a creation of their own sound. As a result, established industry songwriters and producers took notice, becoming believers of a group that display a resilience and passion behind their music.Now well-endowed with stronger songs, swagger and a confidence in what is different may not be so bad, the august believe it’s time to present their sound, once again, to those willing to listen.the august is a band to watch and a band to follow.New EP coming in May 2011
