Artist to Watch: David Hugo
David Hugo, a 19-year-old singer-songwriter and social media star from California, is one of our artists to watch in 2020.
At only 19 years old, David Hugo has amassed over 520,000 followers on Tik Tok, almost 60,000 followers on Instagram, and just under a million Spotify streams. With his huge social media following and string of singles being released, it's no wonder why he is one to watch in 2020.
His latest single, Falling Hearts, was released in late September 2019 and already has
150,000 Spotify streams -- impressive for a young artist just starting out! Some of his musical inspirations are the new generation of alt-pop and singer-songwriters including Billie Eilish, Alec Benjamin, Lauv, Charlie Puth, and Finneas. You can definitely hear the inspiration from these artists in his incredible music.
Not only does he sing and write his own songs, but he also plays the piano, guitar, and ukulele. With his popularity and musical skill-set growing, we asked the budding artist a few questions:
Who would you LOVE to collab with on your music?
Probably just the whole list of people I mentioned earlier haha. Alec Benjamin, Billie Eilish, Lauv, Charlie Puth, Finneas.
What is your long-term goal? To be a singer & performer?
Yeah! The long-term goal would be able to make music and live from that. I’d love to play different roles in the industry -- artist, writer, composer, producer, etc.
Your newest single, Falling Hearts, just came out in a few months ago and already has over 150,000 streams on Spotify! Based on your string of singles released this year, will there be an album or EP coming soon?
Yes, Yes, and Yes!
I’m sure your fans are dying to know… are you dating anyone? Would you date a fan?
I’m currently not dating anyone, just focusing on music for now :). I wouldn’t be opposed to dating a fan!
What is in store for you in 2020? Live Shows? New Music? Album?
Can you give us any exclusive info?
SO much new music and hopefully lots of live shows! Album? What about just a ton of singles and EPs? Exclusive info? Hm, I have no secrets :) Breana Raquel and I may or may not be releasing something special on Valentine’s day.
