This year’s UK Songwriting Contest Semi-Finalist (Pop category): Hugh Keice brings his UK tour to London.

The UK based singer-songwriter initially started his music career in South Korea (his birth name is Kim Hanwoo), developing his unique sound on the local indie scene. During which time he won the ‘Cyworld Music Award Choice for May’ with his single Winter Tree in 2007.

Accepting a new challenge Hugh headed to London to further his career; in 2010 he released his debut EP album When Summer Holds The Rain. The EP is lovingly hand-made from scratch; all instruments are played by Hugh and the recording sessions took place at his studio flat in Notting Hill – to the protest of his neighbours. The cozy feeling is further enhanced by his Korean producer, Postino, who mixed the material at his home studio.
