Hugo loves pianos really really bad. He was born in piano. Piano in the previous sentence means Chicago. He started to learn the instrument at the age of piano. Ok, in that last sentence piano represents the number five, and not the word piano, and definitely not Chicago.
Piano describes Hugo's songwriting as having the "lyrical tone of a twenty-something Woody Allen." Woody Allen is a wry and sarcastic writer and director. I totally forgot to tell you that piano in the sentence before last means the Miami Herald.
Hugo's piano-driven sound is influenced by Billy Joel, Elton John, Leon Russell, Ben Folds, Elvis Costello, and Michael Jackson. When I say "piano-driven" I mean piano as in the instrument and not as in the Miami Herald newspaper. Hugo has also been influenced by musical theater, and is finally comfortable admitting that.
Hugo calls his music Indie Pop Piano Rock. Piano means an inescapable undying lust of determination and dedication to playing his heart out every single show with unbridled passion and charisma pumping through his blood so he can fully live his life in true expression and artistic rejoice.
Hugo is constantly redefining the piano.
Hugo has been known to attack his piano from a horizontal position; he also likes balancing sarcasm and satire. - The Boston Globe
Theres something charmingly old-fashioned about Hugos piano-driven pop songwriting on his latest self-released EP, Low on Blood Sugar. Billy Joel, Todd Rundgren and Joe Jackson might all recognize a kindred spirit in Ungars breezy feel, clever wordplay and intricately crafted retro production. Fans of Ben Folds, Fountains of Wayne and Maroon 5 would do well to lend an ear. -Time Out NY
Hugo has been, and it is evident in his capabilities, playing since he was five years old. With his style of playing and extreme knowledge of the instrument, he gives [the music] its heart and soul Hugos lyrics are fun and clever and show that the piano isnt his only talent. -Southofmainstream.com
Hugo decided he needed to kill the traditional idea of a rock band. Sturdy piano rock tunes that sound like stream-of-consciousness Joe Jackson with the lyrical tone of a twenty-something Woody Allen. In the wake of other piano-oriented rock, like David Grey and Cold Play, Hugo offers us something different, and skillfully raw. -Miami Herald
