British-born, Thailand-raised, “gangsta-rocker” Hugo, hits the road this fall with Irish-trio The Script and the UK’s One eskimO. Hugo will support The Script on the first half of their headlining US tour and then join One eskimO for the final leg of their fall tour.
Hugo will perform songs from his forthcoming debut album Old Tyme Religion, due out in Spring 2011. The album is a refreshing and brilliant blend of rock, pop and soul with hip-hop influences. With Old Tyme Religion, Hugo introduces a new audience to multiple international influences, style and true soul through well-crafted lyrics and contemporary music.
“I am excited and grateful to be able to tour the states with great bands, its all I’ve ever wanted to do,” comments Hugo.
Having gained recognition after a song he wrote ended up on Beyonce’s latest album, Hugo was contacted by Roc Nation to be part of the newly formed label. As a tip of the hat to Roc Nation’s founder, Hugo put a country-fried twist on the classic “99 Problems” discovering an unforeseen link between pop, rock and hip-hop. Hugo will make his national TV debut performing “99 Problems” on Jimmy Kimmel Live October 12th.
