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 sisters, 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 at the age of 12 & began playing in local bands almost immediately. 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 which he co-wrote and toured a full length album with bands such as Tomorrow's Bad Seeds, The Dirty Heads, Katastro & Fyuca. 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 and Curtis decided to finish the album with on their own. The entire album can be found streaming or for free under the Discography Page.
Chad was still attending college while promoting his first album and was offered an internship in his 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 over 5 years, traveling around the country designing, inspecting & building Airport Runway Lighting Systems. While working as an engineer and living in San Francisco, Chad began performing around town to positive feedback, which created a buzz in his home community as well as in The Bay Area.
After years of travel, a heavy work schedule, and an evolving dreary path, Chad realized he was living the life of someone else. He decided to move back to Los Angeles to continue his musical endeavors where he teamed up with Risi (E2K) and continued writing his next solo album. Chad immediately started filling in as a drummer, percussionist or guitarist in hollywood as well as writing for & with several artist in the Los Angeles Area. All while flying home monthly to work on his self-produced 2nd album (Brighter Days 2015) with Steve Parrish of DesertCoast Studios, where it all began.
After being hired as Musical Director for the film "Sweet Sunshine," (in which he also acted in) Chad performed and produced the soundtrack (out now!) with the film's stars to great reviews. He also brought his band in and helped direct the musical performance scenes throughout the film as well as assisting and learning from director Craig Mcmahon throughout the filming and post production. With the film wrapped and set to release, Chad dove back into writing more music and hit the road performing across the southwest. As the film's release approached (March 16th 2020) Chad signed an A&R deal to continue his pursuit of a career in performing and songwriting. Of course, the world was upended by an unfortunate pandemic which brought Chad back to his home state of Arizona. (Sweet Sunshine, Available now on Amazon!)
With forced time to write and record due to the pandemic, Chad has charged forward with his writing and releases! With several singles released over the last two years with producers such as Matthew Keller (Lydia), Curtis Douglas, Shayan Amiri and Loren Israel, Chad has a large diverse discography.
Currently, Chad is releasing brand new singles each month (2020) with producer Loren Israel and vocal engineer Steve Parrish leading up to part one of a two part album!
