Hugh Kelly is a Glasgow based singer songwriter – often described as having a bluesy, soul sound, complimented with a gravely vocal tone.
Since releasing his first single in Feb 2016, Hugh has performed over 230 gigs around UK – highlights being performances at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the BBC and Scottish Television (STV).
In his short 2 year music career, Hugh has featured extensively in national press, radio interviews and music blogs and has been featured as Artist/Single of the Week on numerous radio stations throughout UK and in the USA
When asked if there were any particular gigs that stood out over the past 24 months, Hugh said:
“I think playing iconic venues for the first time such as King Tuts in Glasgow, The Bedford & the Alleycat in London stand out – they were all packed and it was just brilliant. However, if I had to pick one it would have to be performing for all the golf pros and A-list celebrities at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews in October 2017 – a bit surreal but great fun!”
What lies ahead for 2018?
“The first 3 months of 2018 have been hectic – I’ve been doing a lot of songwriting, production work and numerous residency gigs in Glasgow and Edinburgh. “
“I’ve got a short 4 date Scottish tours coming up on 5 April – 8 April in Glasgow (The Garage), Edinburgh (Sneaky Petes), Aviemore (The Old Bridge Inn) & Inverness (The Tooth & Claw) which I’m looking forward to. Shortly after that I’ll be releasing a Live EP from my performance at Sofar Sounds Edinburgh.”
“The rest of the year will be focusing on a couple of new releases, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and a number of other gigs which will be announced in the next couple of months.”
