Roger Hubbard is a British-born guitarist who became adept at playing in the style of his blues heroes such as Robert Johnson, Skip James, Fred McDowell and the like from an early age.
He was discovered by US Yazoo Records and his album „Brighton Belle Blues“ was recorded for their Blue Goose label in 1970. Since then, Hubbard has continued to develop his own style, teaming up with a rhythm section in the 1980s to create the unique blues trio called the „Buick 6“, which recorded three albums. Now folded, Hubbard performs under his own name, solo or with a band. He has released six solo albums with many of his own compositions. “Homelovin’ Man” was covered by Eric Bibb.
Hubbard also runs an antique restoration workshop where he also makes his own guitars.
