Staubus set to release debut album, “Dam Town”


Jeremy Staubus has had family and friends encouraging him for years to pursue a career in Music City.

The Mount Solon native is taking a step in that direction with the upcoming release of his debut country-music album.

“Dam Town” is set for release this month. The CD will be available online at www.JeremyStaubus.com.

Staubus took a different road to a budding career in country music. As a teen, he listened to ’90s rock and started out in music playing guitar in a rock band with his brother. He made the switch to country jamming old country and bluegrass hits with his grandfather, which sparked his interest in country music.

In 2009, Staubus joined a local cover country band, Wildhorse, and has played clubs, fairs and private parties across Virginia and West Virginia with the band. As a solo artist, Staubus has performed in two prestigious country-music competitions, the Colgate Country Showdown and the Virginia Dreams Voice of the Valley, making it to the semifinal round in both.
