Chad Rubin is a Singer-Songwriter, Multi-instrumentalist musician out of Scottsdale, Arizona. Chad began playing music at a young age with his family in Phoenix, Arizona. From singing with his grandmother, to performing with his sister, Chad was raised with a large variation of musical styles. After being kicked out of both band & orchestra for playing by ear, Chad found his place with the drummers. With help from his parents, he bought himself a drum kit & began playing in local bands almost immediately at the age of 12. After playing in several bands in the local scene Chad went to school at the University of Arizona for two years. Ultimately, he was contacted by an arizona based punk-reggae band called Sinclair’s Revenge & left school to tour with bands such as Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds, The Dirty Heads, Katastro & Fyuca. After a couple years on the road & a full length album the band eventually split due to lifestyle differences. Chad then teamed up with Producer-Songwriter Curtis Douglas, who produced the Sinclair’s Revenge album (Something for Everyone, 2009), to begin his first attempt at a solo project. “Knock on The Door” was the first single off of Chad’s debut (Self-titled EP, 2012.) After working with two other local studio-labels Chad decided to finish the album with Curtis Douglas & it can be found under the Discography Page. After some success with the record & playing live Chad got offered a job in his once selected major, Marketing. He began working as a brand manager for an Electrical Engineering firm based in Phoenix, Arizona. This job eventually moved him to California where he took on the roll of Electrical Inspector & Project Engineer for several years traveling around the country designing, inspecting & building Airport Runway Lighting Systems. After a year an a half in San Fransisco, Chad began playing around town to positive feedback which created a buzz in his home community as well as in the bay. After years of travel & a heavy work schedule, he decided he was living the life of someone else & decided to move back to Los Angeles to continue his musical endeavors. Chad immediately started right for & with several artist in the Los Angeles Area while flying home monthly to work on his self-produced 2nd album (Brighter Days 2015).
