His musings-in-rhyme have taken him far beyond the reaches of PG County. Substantial has seen the world over, collaborated with artists from other nations and rocked stages across several continents. Home Is Where The Art Is, his third official solo LP, will further solidify Sub as the indie powerhouse he is.
