“A Refreshingly Unaffected Troubadour. Melt into Billy Hubbard's sweet imperfection. Ah, Billy. Thank you for reminding us that you don’t need to make a song slick and pretty to do the work it’s suppose to do. In fact, when it comes to your voice, gentle cowboy, the more scratchy and scraggly, the more appealing. I seek that quiet conversation with Billy, who’s gonna’ tell us all about what it feels like to hold hands on a midnight train and look into your gorgeously imperfect lover’s eyes as the beautiful ruin of time and loss settles around us.
Though you sing to us of suffering, Billy, we feel it’s all gonna’ be okay. Because as the world crumbles and falls, we take comfort in your rough-hewn inflections and gravely poetry and believe that you will keep singing us the lullaby we need to get though this day. rock us in your cradle of raw emotion some more and let us finally welcome the tears that roll in...finally, we've remembered how to smile and cry, and stop trying ”
