About the curator - Hugh Kelly

Music was not something that seemed to initially come naturally to me. After a couple of unsuccessful choir auditions and a few unfruitful attempts at learning the piano in my younger years, my parents decided that perhaps I was just not musically inclined. It was very soon after this that I was given my first guitar at age 10 - an old Strat copy from the 70s with frets jutting out and tuning pegs rusting. Regardless of the state of the instrument, it sparked a profound interest which has only grown until the present day. Fast forward to now, having just completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Composition and Performance from the University of Glasgow as well as a continuing career as a self-releasing musician, I am delighted to be joining the MusicTo team. Having seen streaming services from both the consumer and artist perspective, MusicTo certainly has the ability to provide great interest to both sides of this streaming dynamic.
