Kevin Tubb lived in Austin Texas for twenty years. He grew up around musicians that were living there at the time. Kevin was influenced by local musicians such as Joe Ely, Townes Van Zandt, Ray Wylie Hubbard, John Inmon and many more. He was given his first guitar by Gary P. Nunn. Kevin is still friends with many of them today.
Kevin has recently gone back to Austin to record a CD of all original songs with some amazing players such as John Inmon, Cindy Cashdollar, Glen Fukenaga, Paul Pearcy, and Lloyd Maines. John Inmon (producer and guitar) played guitar with J.J. Walker for 20 years and has worked with David Grisman, Peter Rowan and many more. Cindy Cashdollar (steel guitars, slide guitars) has played with the likes of Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett and the list goes on. Glen Fukenaga and Paul Pearcy (bass and drums) played on the Dixie Chics 5 Grammy winning album entitled 'Home'. Lloyd Maines (pedal steel) has performed on too many projects and with too many great players to name. There's a lot of talent on his CD to say the least. Kevin has also opened for Junior Brown, The Flatlanders, Sam and Dave, Flock of Seagulls, Split Enzs, and others.
Kevin released 2 albums in the early 80's and 2 recent CD's. Since he moved to Madison in 1996 and is working on his next project. a country album to be released in june 09.
