A four-time JUNO Award performer and eleven-time JUNO Award winner, Bubl's trademark Style has taken the world by storm since he first burst onto the music scene. Born in Burnaby, B.C., Bubl had dreamt of being a musician since he was just two-years-old. His self-titled, debut album, released in 2003, featured classic standards, including "Fever" and "The Way You Look Tonight". The album launched Bubl into the limelight, seeing him win New Artist of the Year at the 2004 JUNO Awards. Bubl's second studio album, It's Time, released The Following year, again included classic standards, and as well included the original track "Home" which hit the top of the pop radio charts. The album won four JUNO Awards and, that same year, Bubl received his first two GRAMMY Award nominations. With the success of his third and fourth albums, Call Me Irresponsible and Crazy Love, he continued his meteoric rise to international acclaim, with appearances on OPRAH, THE X FACTOR, and SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, as well as taking part in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games torch relay in Vancouver before the opening ceremony.
