From a young age, multi-instrumentalist Gub (Liam Gubbins) has been heavily involved in music. Growing up in the renowned Howard family (Goanna) music was always the central focus of daily life. Throughout high school, Gubbins played in multiple bands and studied music.
At age 19 Gubbins moved to Melbourne to pursue a digital media degree, where he became exposed to a new vibrant music scene that heavily changed his interest and sound. After a few years DJing he began releasing music under his solo project ‘Gub’. His second single ‘Pick Me Up’ gained industry attention after it was added to Spotify Editorial Playlists ‘Fresh Finds’ and ‘Indie Arrivals’. In-between recordings, Liam was coordinating music events in his hometown of Warrnambool and joining Marcia Howard’s band regularly as a bass guitarist for festivals & gigs around Australia.
Gubbins began recording his debut EP last year on Lummi Island in the United States after quitting his job in Australia to pursue music. After two months writing and recording on the remote Lummi Island Gubbins returned to Australia to continue recording.
Gub’s EP is a reflection on a breakup recorded over the course of a year. Written, recorded and produced by the multi-instrumentalist, the music is a reflection on a changed lifestyle after the end of a relationship. Gub’s dynamic style draws influences from a mix of genres including alternative, indie, neo soul and electronica.
Gub has released the first single from his debut EP ‘Changes’. The release of Changes will be followed by Gub’s debut EP out October 15. This release will be supported by a series of online live shows until playing live is viable.
