Bio

Who is Hugh Klein? Raised in Melbourne Australia, following his ongoing career in film composition, Hugh found himself living in the city of Paris, and soon giving birth to his loveliest & most realised project yet… Sourcing inspiration from romance, warm evenings, chilled red wine, floral scents, clothes waving & wrapping the curves of your body, gold & tobacco, "You go your way, I go your way too", low light amongst white flowers, fingertips & of course... the look of love. Hugh directs his musical exploration to his deliberate fascination with intimacy & romance.
With wide spanning influence from pockets of Blue Note jazz & neo-soul to feature film scores, Hugh Klein is much more than his recorded ideas, rather an ongoing story to be swept into and carried along...

The coming record ‘No Plans, No Rules’ moves through themes of intimacy, adoration, the rebirth of desire & genuine romance. Engaging each mood with floating vocals & guitar, brushed percussion, lush string arrangements and rich Rhodes & Wurlitzer’s.

glad you've given us all the chance to marinade in this slippery, lush, understated, jazzy beauty for a full five minutes.

This stunned me into silence the first time I heard it. This filled me with the sort of warmth that typically only comes via the consumption of high end spirits.
