Gregory Thomas Hügel is a New England Composer, Keyboardist and Synthesist. Influenced from an early age by French Impressionism, Hügel works in tandem within the Acoustic and Electronic mediums. Classically-trained, he seeks to create honest narratives through a Postmodern and Minimal approach.
It could be said his love of the cold came from being born in Winchester, Massachusetts to American-born Irish and German parents during the dead of Winter. By the age of 2 he was already a well acquainted friend with the family's upright piano that rested at their 10 Lawrence Street residence.
With the good fortune of being raised in the outlying suburbs of Boston, trips made to the corner of Huntington and Mass Ave, to hear the Boston Symphony Orchestra, were commonplace.
In 2006 an audition for a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music would ultimately change the course of Gregory's life. He completed his studies during the Spring of 2012.
Gregory's career has taken a turn to Los Angeles, where it has actively blossomed into an eclectic mix of touring keyboardist, record producer and film composer. Furthermore, Gregory proudly tours, records and scores exclusively with British made Modal Electronic's premier line of synthesisers.
Today Gregory resides in Los Angeles with his wife and child.
