A graduate from Berklee College of Music ('12), Gregory Hügel exhaustively studied Jazz and Classical piano, all the while having a natural propensity towards the Pop and R'n'B worlds.
Gregory moved to Los Angeles in 2015, where in his first year he interned at movie trailer music giant, redCola, proceeded by synth programming for powerhouse movie trailer and video game composer Mark Petrie. Following this bustling career stint, Gregory decided to revert back towards his original passion of live playing and touring.
In doing so, doors quickly flung open, affording him the opportunity to play for four Los Angeles based artists, X-Factor finalist CeCe Frey, Isabelle, and Matthew Grant (Polydor Records), as well as to tour all year long with Columbia Records' breakout artist Quinn XCII.
Quinn's debut album (9.15.17) will be lead off with "Straightjacket", a track that earned SoundCloud’s “Song of the Month” title, reaching #3 on SoundCloud’s Pop chart. At Spotify, “Straightjacket” has been streamed more than 12 million times around the globe, finding him a #1 spot on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart. Quinn's streaming success has garnered him 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify, with an impressive 50+ million plays in total.
Currently Quinn XCII is receiving regular Top 40 play across the country in anticipation of this Fall's 28-City Headliner North American Tour.
Gregory has enjoyed handling all Synth Bass and Keys duties for Quinn XCII, playing some of the biggest festivals across the country, including successful runs at Firefly, Mamby and Breakaway.
This Fall, Gregory will continue his dynamic dual-role on stage, as Quinn XCII and team embark across venues spanning the continent.
