We had the good fortune of connecting with Will Hubert and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Will, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I can say that how we think about risk now is directly related to our increase in success. As young people we often believe planning ahead and avoiding hiccups will surely get us to our goal on time. Which yes, those are not bad things to do in themselves, but life doesn’t play like that. Learning and practicing the discipline to take action with risk, while being open to fixing hiccups on the fly will keep your momentum where it needs to be.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Our music that we make in Elektric Animals sets itself apart and that has to do with a couple of things. We all want to make radio ready indie pop rock hits, but we all have a different idea on how that sounds. So we end up with a very unique pop sound. We got to where we are because we never settled and we still haven’t. Let’s face it, we arent settlers. It hasn’t been easy because the money isn’t there to be supported full time or even part time. You must work at least another full time job besides your music. And I can tell you if you aren’t putting full time hours and effort into your art it definitely won’t get you to the paid artist status. We’ve learned to get over yourself. Your ego will be your greatest and closest enemy if you let it. We want the world to know about our music! Our goal is to make someone’s day by enjoying our music. We want to draw emotion from people and give back the energy we put into our music. Listen to Elektric Animals please
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
In no particular order -Golden/Lookout Mountain because that was the first place I lived in Colorado and you gotta hit up the pizza buffet at Woody’s.
-Stanley Hotel/RMNP because of the rich history and beautiful views.
-My Brothers Bar on 15th and Platte is the most classic place to eat in all of Denver and I bring everyone there.
-South Broadway neighborhood because thats where I lived and worked for many years. Badgers Pub is where I spent a lot of time in my 20s.
-Red Rocks no explanation nescessary
-Milk Bar because I love the crowd that place brings in, paired with the music, you cant beat it for what it is.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
An old self help book called How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie taught me a handful of incredibly useful daily practices and techniques to make life better. Also my Father for giving up drinking all those years ago. I don’t think I would have thought it possible for myself without him.
