Before he found his way to country music, Staubus began as a bass player for a rock band his brother started. After several years of being in the background on stage, Staubus took a vital step that spurred his songwriting and opened his eyes to country music. He began playing old country tunes with his grandfather on the front porch of his grandparent’s home in Virginia. With his grandfather’s encouragement and guidance, Staubus found himself in the thralls of country music.
Today Staubus plays all over the East Coast and Nashville area. He’s opened for country artists Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Easton Corbin, Danielle Bradbery and Jon Pardi to name a few. Several of his songs, in fact, have won regional songwriting awards. His talents have not gone unnoticed. CMG Nashville has signed him as a recording artist and sees a bright future ahead of him.
