Saxophone: Wild solos, subtle lines, punchy hooks for $50

Top tier session saxophonist, having recorded & performed globally - e.g. Andrew Farriss (INXS). I play anything from Funk, Blues, and Jazz through to Pop/Rock, Folk, EDM and Hip Hop. I am formally trained in Jazz/Contemporary & recording engineering (ANU/UIUC) and Classical (AMusA) and am able to play parts by ear, written or improvised. I have a professional studio set-up and diligent work ethic.
90-second reel:

I have extensive recording & performing experience through a plethora of session work as well as producing 5 of my own albums.
My saxophone services can be as simple as playing over an EDM track for you to chop up as you wish, producing funky horn arrangements for an R&B tune or the classic wailing Pop/Rock Sax solo that makes you shiver inside.

I have journeyed through the USA, Europe and Australia, performing in clubs and doing session work with bands, songwriters, producers and DJs from all walks of musical life.
Inspired by this, I constantly explore new musical avenues to discover original sounds and styles.
My maturity as a session player means that if you know exactly what you want I can help you realize that dream, taking criticism (without egos getting in the way!) until you are satisfied. And if you don't know what you want, I am also more than happy to create the parts myself. Job time can often be under 24 hours - please let me know if you have fast turnaround requirements.
I also play guitar, bass and EWI.
Looking forward to hearing from you and helping you with your project.
Please get in touch!

Yanagisawa 992 alto sax
Akai Pro EWI5000 (Electronic Wind Instrument)
Fender Telecaster
Fender Jazz Bass
Pro Tools 12

Please credit me in your track and provide a copy of the completed track once finished if possible.

  38. Review By: sometimes Nov 11, 2017

    I was most fortunate to find Hugo via 'Air Gigs'... he was able to provide me with exactly what I required for my song 'Bad Livin'....His ability on the Sax is second to none and his valuable contribution made the song what it is...a really polished commercial product...I will certainly be working with Hugo again in the near future and would recommend his professional services to anyone out there needing someone who has great talent...Ian Fall...UK
