HUGO FERREIRA - Lead Singer and Founder
Hugo Ferreira is a Portuguese-American African-born singer/songwriter musician. He is best known for being the lead singer and songwriter for the American rock band Tantric.
Hugo Ferreira was born in Luanda, Angola, which at the time was a Portuguese colony, to Portuguese colonial settlers. After the independence of Angola in 1975, his family moved to Hudson, Massachusetts in the United States. Hugo began playing the piano at around age 5. According to his biography, he began thinking about writing and composing music at 14 years of age.
Before becoming a more mainstream artist, Ferreira was a member of wedding bands, dance music groups, “off-tune” rock groups, and Portuguese folklore groups. After graduating from Hudson High School in 1992, he moved to Detroit, Michigan, where he started the band Merge with Paul Hemsworth. In the course of the next four years, the band self-released a record and a six-song tape.
