Edinburgh-based singer/songwriter Hugh Kelly’s career highlights so far include guest spots on STV, BBC Radio Scotland and various stages at this years’ Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Reviews for his recent EP ‘Give Me All Your Love’ in The Scotsman & Scotland on Sunday have been more than favourable and in the last 3 years he’s racked up over 300 gigs.

If you are familiar with Hugh’s honest bluesy vibe & rich and rugged vocal delivery, then prepare yourself for his new single ‘The Double’. If not, then you are in for a treat!


Hugh delivers all his trademark soulful tones and lyrical sensitivity on this new track but it’s the production that brings a distinctly modern sound. Layered backing vocals and drum machine sounds from the offset lead to you think you’ve just discovered the new Paulo Nutini (or insert the name of your favourite male singer/songwriter), but when the chorus kicks in, the track starts to sound like an old friend; a classic rock anthem that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Bruce Springsteen LP.

Get it! Love it! Tell your friends! And go see this guy live before he’s too big to be playing small venues in Edinburgh & Glasgow – you will not regret it.

Did You Know

The launch party for this single will be held at Biscuit Factory in Edinburgh as part of The Landings Festival 17th November.

‘The Double’ will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music 17/11/16
