Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.

My name is Bryan Hubert and I’m a singer-songwriter based out of New York City. I was born in Connecticut, USA in 1987 and grew up in a lower middle class family in a small town called Torrington. When I was 15, my family moved down to North Carolina where I lived for 7 or 8 years before I moved to NYC. I started playing music when I was 5 years old.

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

Music has been a part of whole life from getting my first drum set at 5 years old to recording on cassette at 8. Throughout high school, I played drums in a band and put out some mixtapes with some friends going into college. I went to GTCC in North Carolina where I received two Associates degrees: one in recording and one in artist management. I received my Bachelor’s in Music from City College in NYC a couple years back. I’m been songwriting, recording, and working with local artists in North Carolina and NYC for the past 10 years.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

Growing up I was heavily influenced by hip hop music and slowly got into singer-songwriter stuff when I was in high school. Some of my favorite artists have been able to successfully blend hip-hop and folk including G. Love, Mike Doughty, Citizen Cope, etc.

My song “Loose Change” really has nothing to do with money – it’s all summed up in the last lyric of the chorus: “The love I get is worth more than I need”. It’s more about appreciating all the love, friends, and family I have and how grateful I am for them.

The video was a collab with a good friend of mine (Forrest Davis) who makes films with his crew at Raw Bacon Pictures. I did some post production sound work for a film of his in exchange for this video. For this video, I sent him the track and let him create as he saw fit.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

I’m a huge advocate for education in the music business and understanding how things work in this crazy business. The music business is overly complicated and very difficult to understand. Many artists have no clue about the business beyond making music. My goal was always to learn as much as possible. I went to school for music and started a label called Black 17 about 3 years ago with a good friend of mine. Not only do we work with a bunch of dope hip hop artists but we’re constantly learning about the industry and how to do things better. I truly believe that in 2017, if you want to be successful in the music business, you need to understand as much about marketing, promotion, copyrights, publishing, etc. as possible. Great music can fall on deaf ears if there is no plan; mediocre music can blow up with a great plan.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

The song was completely written, produced, and recorded by myself. The video was done by Forrest Davis (of Raw Bacon Pictures). Basically just a one day shoot with him and his crew. A simple video for a simple song.

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

Got my first real job in the industry about 10 years ago at a radio station. Since then, I’ve worked in radio, TV, a music venue, a distribution company, and currently run a label. The end goal? Find happiness by putting out honest art.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

My wife is my muse and tends to play a part in most of my songs. The rest of my inspiration is more or less a simple commentary on the world around me.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

Though I’ve yet to write one, I believe the secret for making a hit song comes down to honestly, structure, simplicity, and a touch of something different. A disclaimer – what is considered a hit song is relative. There are a lot of hit songs that are incredibly complex or lack honestly, yet they still resonate with people. And that’s great! However, for the music I consider to be successful, I want it to be short, direct, and honest. I like artists that respect the song and the craft of making it; traditional song structures work for a reason. I think if an artist can be honest and put their stamp on it (which is the touch of something unique or different), they’ll have a better chance of reaching an audience that is interested.

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there.

Peace, love, and happiness.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Don’t be afraid to put your music out there. Be open to criticism. Stay optimistic. Learn as much about the music industry as possible.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

The success I’ve found in my career has been on the label side of things – being a small puzzle piece of the marketing and distribution of some great projects. A behind the scenes kind of guy. For my personal music, this is new territory for me.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

I do everything at home in my bedroom. I’ve been recording music for over 10 years and I feel most comfortable doing it myself at my apartment. Usually I pick up the guitar, mess around and come up with a melody. That somehow transforms itself into a full idea where it becomes a song.

Name five biggest artists that you look up to like idols.

This is not an easy question because I love so many different artists – some of which are my favorite, some of which I think are the best, some of which capture a moment in time. The list changes constantly as I find new artists and discover old ones. Here’s a list of artists that I’m hugely influenced by and really dig right now (in no particular order): The Beatles, Jack Johnson, Citizen Cope, Jay-Z, Amos Lee, Bob Marley, Sublime, Anderson Paak, G Love, Kendrick Lamar.
