Hubert Street members Bradley White-Dale & Doug Gomez met through a mutual friend, all of whom share one thing in common, a passion for music. Being on 2 separate continents did not stop them from combining their love into one musical creation, instead, it drew them together.
Upon first impressions, Bradley is a young, handsome white boy from London, UK, with a cutting edge and artistic style reflecting his appreciation for the Art World and Rock n Roll. It wouldn't be difficult to view him as the new Morrissey on his style alone. When he opens his mouth to sing, however, a voice emerges which is so unique that it draws comparison from soul greats such as Donny Hathaway and Luther Vandross. As a songwriter, Bradley's honesty and vulnerability are both heart-wrenching and sincere and offers the audience a glimpse in to his private World. His debut album was released last year on ITunes and consists mostly of soulful, folky original songs which make up a stunning introductory debut. One song from the album; "Flowers in her Hair" will appear in an upcoming feature film starring British actress, Sadie Frost and another, "Been There Before" became the unofficial anthem for a campaign by the European Parliament to halt violence against women which Bradley was chosen to be a spokesperson for. Bradley's unique, soulful voice has been heard in top venues such as The O2 Arena, The Barbican, Westminster Abbey, The Royal Opera House and Harlem's Apollo Theater.
Growing up in New York City during the late 70's & 80's, it wasn't difficult to be influenced by the many new sounds exploding at the same time. Doug Gomez did not grow up playing a musical instrument, but his passion for music at an early age and being exposed to the many genres of music like Salsa, Hip Hop, House Music, New Wave and Freestyle, helped train his ear for music. That passion led to buying his own DJ equipment at age 18 and ultimately landing an internship at a new house music label in 1994; hired by none other than DJ Tedd Pattterson. Doug quickly learned the business side of the music industry, where he quickly moved up the ladder from promotion manager to A&R. In 2007, Doug and his friend Matthew Moffre formed Drrtyhaze as outlet for electronic house & disco sounds. Their productions have led to an onslaught of releases on reputable labels like Gomma, Tirk, Redux and Speak and remixes on Under the Shade, Nang, Airtight, Truffle and Regalia with many more to come.
The name Hubert Street comes from the love of the New York Underground. A downtown street in Tribeca which housed one of the greatest clubs in New York club history called Vinyl. The many parties like Body & Soul and Shelter inspired both members to create that magic felt on the dance floor. Through soulful melodies, Hubert Street music promises to make the hearts patter while the percussive, driving drums will make you dance to your hearts content.
