Singer/songwriter Hugo (the moss) draws inspiration from folk musicians such as Rickie Lee Jones, Tracy Chapman, Paul Simon and James Taylor. Hugo has also tracked some blues artists like, Keb’ Mo, Corey Harris, John Hurt. As a teenage 70’s and 90’s rock supporter and Pearl jam admirer started to play guitar in the mid-‘90s, and began to write his own rock driven songs shortly afterward. The Portugal native became serious about performing while attempting to make music with school mates in the late '90s. While graduating to become a teacher, starts composing this time for his own solo project. Playing in small clubs and music challenges around Porto between 2001 and 2004, Hugo ended “diffuse words” demo CD (home recording) and got to National Radio ANTENA 3 “Quinta dos Portugueses” 2004 contest, 12 bands selected between hundreds.
Now, with Joel Maia on Bass, Marcelo Araújo on drums and as a trio, together with some guests, Studio EP “the moss” is the most recent trace of Moss’s music journey.
