Hugo Valentine is back, and this time he brings with him a band of excellent musicians. Hugo captures the very essence of British music with catchy and colourful songs packed full of lyrical depth and colour. His influences are widespread, ranging from Elton John to Coldplay, Tom Odell to Arctic Monkeys, and David Bowie, among many others.
Growing up with a varied musical upbringing, Hugo’s career began aged 4 years old on a plastic toy piano bought by his grandmother – he started taking piano lessons in his London home soon after. At the age of 10, Hugo was admitted into the Royal College of Music junior department and remained there for several years where he was trained in classical music and, above all, the piano.
Hugo spent much of last summer performing at numerous festivals, including both Carfests, Tom Kerridge’s Pub In The Park (Bath/Marlow/Knutsford), Big Feastival, The Eden Project and Hampton Court Palace Festival warming up for Tom Jones. He is looking forward to a busy summer showcasing his new show and a set of brand new material, with appearances at festivals including Camp Bestival, Brookfest and a return to both Carfests.
Hugo kicks off the Summer gigs with a performance in London. Nearly 18 months since his last show in the Capital, Hugo has written and finessed a host of new material which will be debuting at 229, accompanied by his energetic band. Expect catchy hooks, piano driven melodies and a high energy show.
