Starting out as a drummer in the school band at 8, moving on to piano and double-bass lessons at 12 while singing and playing guitar in rock bands, Tom Hugo is a highly versatile musician. Tom has most experience working alongside a beat maker while focusing on chords, melodies and vocal production, but has also delivered finished productions all by himself. As well as producing for his own solo-project and KEiiNO, he’s produced singles for other artists like German Echo-nomintated Y’akoto, Alexandra Rotan and multiple J-pop acts.

 

Tom writes lyrics too, but his true superpower is crafting annoyingly hooky melodies. Being a singer, he also loves working with singers helping them to get the most out of their voice during recording, and is a very experienced vocal-comper (building impressive main vocals by selecting the most exciting words/ syllables out of dozens of takes).

In 2012, Tom discovered J-pop for the first time, and the following year he had his first cut with Korean superstars SHINee. Since then, Tom Hugo has co-written multiple songs on #1 selling singles/ albums for acts like TVXQ, EXO and SHINEe and been in hundreds of writing-sessions all over the world with everything from young artists to A-list hit-makers (Justin Jesso, Dsign, Will Simms, Herbie Chrichlow, Michael Jay, Steven Lee) Tom signed his first publishing-deal with Universal in 2009, was signed to BMG Rights management from 2015-2020, and is now self-published through Hugoworld AS and Mii AS.
