About Hugh Wilson

Brooklyn, NY

From a semi-nomadic childhood in the Australian desert, to winning Star Search and touring with Lenny Kravitz, Hugh Wilson still covers the territory, with what a critic called "the voice of an angel and the stage presence that hails from the dark side

Born to an Anglican minister and a nurse from Tanzania, Hugh spent his early years moving between churches in remote parts of Australia before moving to Sydney. Hugh learned the trumpet, sang boy-soprano in church choirs, and shockingly for an Australian, chose singing in a school musical over state track meets.

At 19, Hugh won the male vocal category of "Star Search", in Australia as the U.S., a nationally televised viewer-voted talent competition. Hugh was immediately scooped up by one of Australia's premiere management companies, and recorded “Illiad,” a critically praised debut on Polydor Records

There followed several recordings with his brother Derek, and guitarist Michael Dolce, with their bands "The Blue Phoenix", "Drowning Jester", and "King Luan"; as well as recording "Gnome" with jazz saxophonist Spike Mason

He also developed as a producer/engineer working with artists such a
Sarah Blasko, Katie Prior, Luke Pittman, T J Eckleberg and Christia
acts Receiver, Prayerworks, Melanie Cooke, and David Holmes

Hugh later teamed up with the Leigh brothers of Pseudo Echo to form the band, Vertigo, and enjoyed a brief stay in the Australian charts.

Alongside all this Hugh was an in-demand session vocalist, singin
literally hundreds of Australian and Asian commercials

In 2000 Hugh left Australian shores for Europe, Singapore and the USA
Teaming up with Mark Moffatt in Nashville and co-producing Nemesi
Rising's Joshua and Jacob Miller

A move to New York resulted in breaking into the New York commercia
scene as a session vocalist, while becoming a Worship Pastor fo
Christian City Church Manhattan, and producing "Peace", "Radiate"
"C3USA" and Steve Deal's "Edge of The Ocean" & Cure for Gravity" CD
within the C3 movement, as well as writing/recording with Mari
Christensen, Tommy Zano, Sovory, Blu Sanders, Willamerika, Ben Butler
Paul Colman, Ryan Truso, Alex Forbes and Tracee Beazer with man
projects still in the pipeline

In 2004 he and Sanders wrote songs for a
independent release, "Unidirectional." And in 2005-06 Hugh joined Lenn
Kravitz's band as a vocalist for a US tour with Aerosmith

A frontman again, in September Hugh released a contemporary Christia
CD "Into Light" and has teamed up with his lovely wife Anne, talented jaz
bassist Mark Lau, and drummer Mike Flaherty for live shows
