All Hugo Valentine Wants Is A Little Love With New Single Out Today

Hugo Valentine is back with his new single, ‘All I Want’, released today, February 5. The classically trained pianist and vocalist is in fine form and all he wants…is a little love.

‘All I Want’ brings to mind Billy Joel – not just because Hugo’s piano playing is simply sublime, but also because of the lyrical content and vocal style. In terms of Hugo’s contemporaries there’s more than a hint of Tom Odell, and it’d be great to see the pair collaborate on a future project, with Hugo’s thoughtful and emotional pop stylings the perfect match for Tom’s anguish-filled life extracts.

As ever, Hugo has been a busy man, performing at gigs and festivals all over the UK last year – he even supported Sir Tom Jones at Hampton Court Palace. This year is no different, with another single, ‘Live Another Day’ to be released in April, to follow ‘All I Want’. There is more music set for release in June, and further live performances. Watch this space!

You can find Hugo Valentine online on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud, and his official website. Stream and download ‘All I Want’ on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.
