Tubby Love “The Garden” Background:
Tubby Love, a Hawaiian resident, is a frequent collaborator as evidence with his guest features alongside notable artists including Trevor Hall, Mike Love, Nattali Rize, Rising Appalachia and more. After 3 years went into the making of the album it received rave reviews from our Brian Glaser who gave it a 4-star album review. The album features 11 total tracks with its own slew of guest appearances that include Trevor Hall, Tha Mammoth, Amber Lily, Elijah Ray, Chris Berry, Murray Kyle & Franko Heke.
In his Review, Glaser said that “‘Waves’ doesn’t necessarily jump out as a reggae album. This is more of an acoustic, hip-hop, jam and folk soul-fest of a sweet-sounding journey with reggae intertwined.”
For this week, we’re featuring track 5 with the song “The Garden.” Tubby explained that this album didn’t come from the brightest of places as he shares: “(Come Back to) the Garden” came at a really tough time in my life. I had just found out that my partner, at the time, had become pregnant and that it wasn’t in the cards to keep the child.”
Love continues, “Fortunately, music has always been there for me, and I was surrounded by angels at the time. I think Xavier Rudd, Chris Lane (flute) and Dustin Thomas were the first people I shared with about it. We were in Bali, and Uncle Xav invited me for a surf to clear my mind. Upon getting in the water I immediately cut my knee on some gnarly reef and began bleeding everywhere. It was on my walk back up the hill, bloody and broken, that the song came to me.”
