Hugh Hammond is a singer-songwriter and film composer in northern California.  His second album, Rebel Compass, was released March 11, 2017.


My aim is to create music celebrating life, in all its splendor and absurdity. My writing often grapples with themes of darkness and light, fear and love, a quest for transcendence from routine and expectation, and illumination of the humor and magic that surrounds us, just sometimes out of sight.
