In a 20-year career as a singer-songwriter Dan Hubbard has released 9 studio albums, toured extensively throughout the UnitedStates, and shared the stage with countless national acts, including MartinSexton, Andrew Combs, and Nikka Costa. Influenced by the likes of Tom Petty,Hubbard’s music has been acclaimed as “beautiful, powerful, and often seemingly effortless.” (Independent Clauses)
Hubbard—an IllinoisNative and the youngest of three boys—credits his brother D.J. with inspiring him to write. “He played me these songs he had written while he was off at college, and I was blown away. Seeing his talent made me believe I might have it in me too.” he says. At age nine, Hubbard’s other brother, Erik, died from brain cancer when he was just 12. By 15, Dan discovered guitar as an outlet.“It became a way for me to properly mourn him, and heal.” After graduating fromIllinois State University, Hubbard knew he wanted to pursue music, and he’s been honing his craft ever since.
Jacky Dustin was a three-sport athlete until, at the tender age of 15, she “borrowed” her dad’sJeep, crashed it into her high school guidance counselor’s BMW (true story),and was grounded for the entire summer. During that forced downtime, she borrowed (for real, this time), her dad’s guitar. Since then, her songwriting career has been a road filled with surprises. Her band, the august, won first place in The Greenbriar’s “Got Country Class” competition, netting them an opening slot for Toby Keith and Lionel Richie. Sheila E called her “a badass” when she finished as a top ten finalist in the online Avon Voices Global VocalCompetition. Her songs have been featured in major motion pictures. But perhaps her favorite accolade was when she won $1,000 of Lou Malnati’s pizza for her original song/video “Lou’s Girl.” Jacky recently returned to her native Chicago after more than a decade in Nashville. She returns with a husband, two daughters, new songs, and a continuing, unwavering love for Bulls #23.
