Grit and groove. Tone and taste. When it comes to Ray Wylie Hubbard's storied catalog, it all goes back to those four elements. It's his secret to the vast majority of his signature sound and style. Now, see the legendary musician perform his unique blend of grit, groove, tone and taste at Discovery Green in Houston next Thursday night.
In many respects, Hubbard is a modern-day bluesman. Had he been born at the turn of the century, he'd have been running around with the legendary Mississippi Delta blues players. With that as his sturdy foundation, he's found a way to both expand and grow while maintaining a sense of respect and loyalty to the rich American roots music of the last century.
If anything, Hubbard's been a student just as much a devout fan. So many of Hubbard's best works, Delirium Tremolos, Eternal & Lowdown, and The Grifter's Hymnal, find Hubbard delivering albums that are uniquely him, but dosed with the best features of his favorite artists.
One of Hubbard's most underrated qualities has been his ear for talented collaborators. For most of his career, Hubbard's work with drummer Rick Richards, bassist George Reiff, guitarist and producer Gurf Morlix and in recent years, Hubbard's son Lucas Hubbard, has produced some of the best sounding albums. There's a sonic landscape that Hubbard and company work within that never falls flat, sounds boring or dated. Even Hubbard's albums of the late '90s and early '00s sound as if they were recorded today. They're timeless in this way.
