Neilson Hubbard got his start as a singer songwriter in the mid-90s, releasing four solo albums on labels such as E Pluribus Unum (owned by Counting Crows' Adam Duritz), Parasol, and Media Creature. These recording projects opened the door to production work about a decade ago. Hubbard has produced albums for many top-tiered and critically acclaimed artists both from Nashville and around the globe including Glen Phillips (Toad The Wet Sprocket), Matthew Perryman Jones, Jeremy Lister, Tyler James, Shannon Whitworth, and Jill Andrews (of the Everybody Fields). Hubbard's more recent work includes releases from The Apache Relay, Ben Glover, and The Farewell Drifters.
His collaborations with Nashville-based artist Matthew Perryman Jones, have found their way into the soundtracks of TV shows such as Private Practice, One Tree Hill, Bones, and Grey's Anatomy - as well as major motion picture features. The song 'Satellites' was featured in Something Borrowed, and 'Waiting on the Light to Change' was recently placed in the summer blockbuster What to Expect When You're Expecting.
Hubbard's first film score for the critically acclaimed documentary, "Southern Belle," was released last spring, and was a collaboration between filmmakers Mary Makley and Kathy Conkwright, and uses a mix of vintage Alan Lomax folk recordings, blues, rock and roll, and period southern instruments to create a multi-layered soundtrack of Southern history and tradition.
Hubbard is based in East Nashville where he as built his own studio. The studio is a reflection of the music he creates: warm, inviting, and intimate. Neilson thrives on writing and collaborating with musicians, and he places an emphasis on songwriting within the growing Nashville music scene.
