Cub Sport has undergone a transformation in the past few years, going from a local indie band to global pop powerhouse. The band has used their platform to share messages of love and encouragement to inspire people all over the world.
Cub Sport was originally formed by singer-songwriter Tim Nelson in 2010 to be a backing band for his solo songs. The band released an EP that same year titled Tim Nelson & The Cub Scouts. They then shortened the name to simply Cub Scouts in 2011, and finally decided on Cub Sport in 2013. In 2017, the band released the first single from their second album, the gospel-influenced “O Lord.” Their second album, entitled BATS, was released in September of 2017 and saw the release of two further singles, “Chasin” and “Good Guys Go.”
Ed Balloon is a singer and performer whose music is a unique blend of R&B, electronic, pop, and hip-hop. With influences ranging from Of Montreal to Jill Scott to Maxwell, his diverse musical background, combined with his Nigerian roots, produces an unparalleled sound. Ed Balloon performs live with a full band to create an energetic stage presence, captivating his audience with one-of-a-kind dance moves.
