Hugo Releases 'Old Tyme Religion'
US gangsta-rock musician, Hugo, has just released his debut album, titled "Old Tyme Religion". Although born in England and raised in Thailand, he now lives in New York City. During his teenage years, while with a band called "Siplor", he and the band released four studio albums. In the years that followed he lived in London where he became interested in blues music and the modern music of numerous edoups including Nirvana and Dr. Dre. In 2008 Hugo co-wrote the song 'Disappear' for Beyonce's third studio album "I Am... Sasha Fierce". As a follow-up, a series of collaborations then led to his current record deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation.
Hugo is famous for his version of Jay-Z's song "99 Problems' where he is seen performing the song in the romantic comedy "No Strings Attached" starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher.
The singles, 'Bread & Butter' and "99 Problems", have been pre-released as tempters for the much-anticipated album, and the listening public have taken to this new work in an impressive way. One comment on a website said after hearing "99 Problems" on the radio, "I really cannot wait for an album from an artist that I only heard of 30 minutes ago..."
The album brings together a classic mix of pop-rock with blues to produce a blend of some seriously good listening.
The official Hugo website allows you to listen to the pre-released singles and read other information about this upcoming music star.
Some critics have suggested that "Old Tyme Religion" is perhaps one of the best albums to be released in 2011 so far.
