Hugo Race


Hugo Race is a musician, author and producer, a streetwise, incurably romantic troubadour whose songs have the focused power of a haiku merged with the scope of a film.

Hugo wrote his first musical stage play at 17, Sweaty Weather, produced at St. Martins Theatre in Melbourne to critical acclaim using over 20 actors and musicians. Since then, Hugo’s creative journey has embraced cross-cultural explorations with different traditions of music from post-punk to modern classic through Mali, Sicily, Brazil and greater Europe.

With a catalogue of 20 albums to his name and innumerable international collaborations, Hugo continues to live and work between Australia and Italy.
