Cub Sport / Minor Poet
In 2018, Cub Sport transformed from a local indie band to a global pop powerhouse. Although it was a year of musical triumphs for Cub Sport—including the independent release of its sophomore album BATS and sold-out shows around the world—the most striking part of the band’s rise has been how it has used its platform to share a message of love, encouraging and inspiring people around the world to live their truth and love themselves.
After spending years writing and recording music in various bedrooms and basements, Andrew Carter hit his stride with And How!, the debut Minor Poet album. Made on a creative whim with no outside expectations, the 11-song collection combined Carter’s love of carefully crafted pop with a loose, fun, off-the-cuff recording aesthetic. The album was released in 2017 and developed a small-but-loving fan base. Minor Poet has grown from a passion project into a cross-country touring band with reviews in publications such as American Songwriter, Magnet, The Wild Honey Pie, and Impose.
