Chill hosts debut release from Jubal

FRISCO - Although Jubal has been a part of the music business for years, he hadn't recorded an album until this past summer. He had lived all over the country - Nashville, Arizona, Los Angeles, Austin and finally Boulder, without finding a production company that suited his needs.

So in June of last year Jubal (who does not use a last name) decided to pay for his own album. And while recording, he met the people from CueZone records, a production company based in Denver, that finally worked for him.

The debut record, titled "Jubal," was released to the media in November and its songs have been playing regularly on Front Range radio stations. Apart from Jubal, the lineup is completed by Kevin Berry on bass, Chris Meisner on drums and Jarad Astin on keyboards.

Jubal is launching his record in Summit County today with a performance at Chill in Frisco. The cover for the show is $2 and tickets will be sold at the door.

They will be playing all the songs on the new CD. "I write a lot about politics," said Jubal. "I majored in political science and minored in music, so politics is one of the biggest themes in my compositions." He also writes fun stuff, he said, but the majority of his music has to do with the political scenario.

Jubal moved to Boulder around two years ago and, after eight months, decided Nederland was more his scene. "I didn't want to be near the mountains, I wanted to be in the mountains," he said.

He continued to perform regularly in Boulder, both solo and with his reggae ensemble "Root Boys," and his jam improvisation project "Lucid Aoouishes."

"I'd love my music to be famous but I don't know that I'd want to give up my anonymity," he said. "In a couple of years, I'd like to be touring internationally."

For more information, call Chill at (970) 668-9930. To check out Jubal's music visit www.cuezonerecords.com.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Jubal has been writing and performing his own music for more than twenty years. He is a multi-instrumentalist with his forte being the guitar. Jubal attended the University of Arizona, while playing with several bands. He graduated in 1994 with a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and a Music Theory and Composition minor. Jubal has played his unique style of music all over the country, including both coasts and in between. Jubal is masterful with acoustic and electric guitars. He is a solid rhythm, and burning lead player. He adds to the music a color not often seen in a guitar player. Jubal is also an adept working bass player. He occasionally collaborates with other bands as a percussionist. Jubal sings powerful melody and precise harmony vocals of his own composed lyrics as well as cover songs and improvisation. Depending upon the venue, Jubal can be seen playing instrumental jazz, solo acoustic shows, full band shows, or his awe inspiring Keller Williams-esque looping performances in which he utilizes a Boomerang Digital Sampler to play bass, percussion, rhythm, and lead guitar, as well as sing lead and harmony. Jubal's music, which is comprised of many genres including jazz, reggae, funk, and blues, is somewhat political, soulfully expressive, and often socially satirical. In 1999, Jubal moved to Austin, Texas, to reach a new audience and experience "the live music capitol of the world." Within a few months after arriving in Austin from Tucson, Jubal had several regular shows and also collaborated with other well-known local Austin bands during his five year stint there. In 2004 Jubal moved to The Front Range from Austin and has been astounding audiences with his solo act, the improvisational jam band "Lucid Alouishes," as well as his new roots reggae project "The Rude Boys." Jubal is also a sound engineer and was consulted for and or ran sound in many of the venues in Austin and elsewhere. Jubal is a nationally published poet and author. Jubal was given several national awards between 1995 and 1997. He is published in several nationally released anthologies and has been or is presently a contributing writer for Werid Magazine, The Santa Fe Reporter, The Austin Paratimes News, and the Boulder based music magazine The Marquee. Jubal's passion for freedom of thought and expression is clearly audible in songs and lyrics that range from simple inspiring melodies to much more intricate and complicated compositions. Jubal has opened for and sat in with Blues Traveler on numerous ocassions in Texas and Colorado.
