Listing such influences as: Bob James, Earl Klugh, David Sanborn, Dave Koz, Count Base, Chick Corea, and Herbie Hancock; the Toronto, Canada-based singer/songwriter and musician, Ali Hugo actually began his musical career at the tender age of eight. By his teens he was performing at local shopping malls.
“…This love is worth fighting for, cause this love is true.”
Fast forward a bit, and now, with a degree in finance to boot, Hugo has taken the DIY approach with music, releasing 2015’s easy-listening instrumental album, New Generation Farahan, for which he wrote, arranged, performed, mixed, mastered and produced the project.
Fittingly, New Generation Farahan served as a precursor to his latest EP, the yet-to-be-released, Time Machine, for which he has released the lead-off single, This Love Is True.
Adding vocals to his pleasant, easy-listening style, Hugo tells his tale of unconditional love using keys, harmonies, and a wonderful classical guitar-style solo at 2:43. Watch for the album soon.
