Bubba grew up in Fullerton, ancestral home of Fender guitars. His mother nicknamed him after Bubba Smith of the 1974 Oakland Raiders. With only his guitar, turntable and blues records to commune with, the self-taught guitarist and natural soul singer was taken prisoner by the blues at an early age. Bubba has labored long and hard in the SoCal blues scene. Bubba has played with Wilson Pickett, Ike Turner, Colin Hay, Joe Houston, Big Jay McNeely, Roy “Guitar” Gaines, Joe Sample, James Gadson, Gerald Johnson, Terry “Big T” DeRouen and fronted the Cold Hard Facts for Chris Gaffney.
