#217 RM Hubbert – Bolt

RM Hubbert, or ‘Hubby’ as he prefers to introduce himself, is a substantial tattooed fellah from Glasgow who plays utterly beautiful, delicate guitar, sometimes with, sometimes without gently murmured lyrics.

Winner of the Scottish Album of the Year Award for kick-in-the-teeth beautiful Thirteen Lost and Found, this astonishing gentleman (once part of El Hombre Trajeado) plays guitar like a flamenco master gone folk, and has some important and highly intelligent things to say about mental illness, too.

‘Bolt’ has it all: unavoidable cycles, violence, torn up hearts, and an emotional yoga video. Just what you were looking for on a quiet Sunday evening.
