Nationality: Danish

Lars H.U.G
Born 1953, Copenhagen, Denmark

Lars H.U.G is one of the leading, most progressive and widely respected Danish artists of his time. He has covered musical genres from new wave to pop, jazz to experimental and even electronic music. He is also an acclaimed visual artist, something that has always been an integrated part of his musical career.
Lars quit high school at the age of eighteen, found a job, a place to live and started painting. In 1975 Lars H.U.G enrolled at the Art Academy of Jutland, but instead of cutting an ear off, he bought an electric guitar!-Shortly after, he and some colleagues started the punk/new wave group Kliche. Inspired by musicians like Roxy Music and Kraftwerk, Kliche soon established themselves as an important Danish underground band, willing to break away from the classic perception of a rock band. Instead they appeared as futuristic workers of a nuclear power plant. The band's musical adaptation of Mao Zedong's poem, "Militia Women", became Kliche's first hit single and in many ways paved the way for H.U.G.'s long and illustrious solo career. Aside from taking part in several minor projects, H.U.G has continued touring and giving concerts with his own band, with the Danish Radio Orchestra and performing at the opening of DR`s new Concert Halls. The past couple of years H.U.G has recorded music for filmmaker Jørgen Leth and made music for Artist Marco Evaristti's spectacular "The Last Fashion" show inspired by inmates on death row in US.
