“Make some room in your collection – here’s a short list of records worth checking out.”
“Robert Burton Hubele isn’t flashy but his easy blues style and low-key approach will have you returning to his latest album, Highway Of Dreams.”
Had a great night at Trees Coffee House at 450 Granville St.
Performed to a packed house and received a great reception! I shared the night with Corrina Keeling (a wonderful songwriter and performer!) and Jessica Teves (great vocalist), and John Pippus started the evening with a couple of his excellently performed original songs.
A very cool venue and a wonderful crowd made for a HOT musical experience!
Robert is a musician, performing artist, songwriter and performer since 1972, and plays acoustic and electric guitar and slide-Dobro. He specializes in blues and jazz music.
I love procreation’ says Robert Burton Hubele, with a smile. As a writer and performer of original blues-jazz, and a storyteller, radio commentator, children’s book author, and actor Robert Hubele has a very full life in the creative arts. Robert’s life mission, he says, is to ‘create love and happiness in life’, which he does ‘every way I can’.
Robert Hubele is from Alberta and has a definite prairie way about him with his ability to spin a good yarn, tell an engaging, humorous story and open into a song. As a songwriter Hubele writes about ordinary things that become extraordinary with just a little extra care. He believes that it is important to use his performances and the stage as a way to generate hope and initiate change and so he writes of the little things that can make a difference.
As a mature and engaging artist for whom music continues to be his full-time gig, Robert’s life experience runs a broad gamut of media and venues: CBC Radio guest, Host and Bandleader for numerous music clubs and song writing events, various television performances, and movie acting. Whether he’s a band-leading crooner on a big stage, in a classy night club with a jazz trio, or playing to intimate house concerts as a solo troubadour, Robert Burton Hubele consistently brings his engaging wit and wisdom to every performance he gives and still leaves audiences hungry for more.
Hubele’s collaborator, Master string player and co-producer Brad Steckel of Calgary Alberta, has been working with Robert to produce their own brand of Bluez/Jazz for 27 years.
Nowadays Robert Hubele makes his home in Vancouver’s vibrant West End and prepares to launch his ninth album of original music, Highway of Dreams, a collection of 10 songs themed around travelling and romance. His experience and skill is clear in this masterful album which discreetly involves the listener in stories of regular folks’ traveling in and out (and back in again) to the celebrated state of love. Hubele’s social song writing technique is at its best in Highway of Dreams where it intersects with marvellous stories for what is a truly great work of art.
“Our favorite troubador from Alberta…entertainment with a Huge capital E. Robert’s CD offers the ‘Classical’ Hubele ingredients: strong, very strong songs, a deep roaring expressive voice, solid guitar playing, and lyrics that tell stories. It’s pretty much an effort that leaves you breathless.”
