Hugo Capelo


Hi, I'm Hugo Capelo. I have 23 years old and I play for about 12 years. I play mostly Progressive Rock/Metal/Ambient/Clean music. I love spreading my music around the world and learn from other musicians. I also like to give advices to people who appreciate my work.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is everything to me. It gives me freedom to say what I can't say speaking.

What is your music dream?

Traveling around the world and earn my money through music.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Help each other, spread the word about projects and new businesses and support your loved ones.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Machine Head - Halo

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Northlane, Erra, Elitist, Invent Animate, Guthrie Govan

What inspires you to make music?

Guitar, Girlfriend, Friends and Parents

What is the message you want to send with your music?

The message i want to send with my music is that people remember me for what I did and remember the feelings they had when listening to my songs.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Always a bit nervous at the beggining but when I play the first note, everything goes away and I have a lot of fun. Always smiling.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

It's hard to be original nowadays, everything sounds the same and it's difficult to sound unique. I think a musician thinks that it's difficult to have an impact with his music but he has to think in another way so he can reach the people he wants, not just music. It envolves talking with fans, answering questions and having a promotion plan in mind.

What do you think of Drooble?

Still very fresh at this to give my opinion.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

My picking technique doesn't let me play shreddy solos and fast alternate picking licks.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Yes, going to shows, buying merch and talk with band members before/after the show.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Humble, Notion and Effort

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.
