Hugo Lee

Studio Saxophonist

Wild solos, subtle lines, punchy hooks – professional Sax player with years of international experience. Performed & recorded throughout the world (NYC, Nashvile, LA, Berlin, London, Edinburgh, Melbourne) with a wide variety of acts- e.g. ICEHOUSE, Andrew Farriss (INXS), Riley Pearce, Jack The Fox.

“A passionate saxophonist and innovative musician…an inspired songwriter and music producer” – Andrew Farriss (INXS)

I have extensive recording experience through a plethora of session work as well as producing 5 of my own albums. Trained in both Jazz (ANU/UIUC) and Classical (AMusA), my music draws from a myriad of influences from all walks of musical life including Funk, Blues, and Jazz through to Pop/Rock, House and Hip Hop. Inspired by this, I constantly explore new musical avenues to discover original sounds and styles.

Please send over any reference tracks, and instructions on when to start/stop playing (mm:ss). I am flexible and easy to work with 🙂 Revisions can be arranged for full-priced jobs but do not include a change of mind/new ideas. Please credit me in your track and send over a link once finished! Price listed is a starting guide for simple jobs – please get in touch to discuss!

My services can be as simple as playing sax over an EDM track for you to chop up as you wish, producing funky horn arrangements for an R&B tune or the classic wailing Pop/Rock Sax solo that makes you shiver inside.

My maturity as a session player means that if you know exactly what you want I can help you realize that dream, taking criticism (without egos getting in the way!) until you are satisfied. And if you don’t know what you want, I am also more than happy to create the parts myself. I am extremely versed in the nuances of online session work and conveying creative ideas remotely.

I also play guitar, bass, EWI, synth, percussion, cello, recorders/flutes etc.
Video available upon request.

Pricing options vary from project to project – please get in touch to discuss. Looking forward to working together!

  1. Crazy fast and crazy good!

    Hugo was incredibly swift in learning the song, improvising some killer work over it, and then getting all the materials back to me. In fact, he did it all in a single evening! Very happy with my experience with Hugo and will definitely be bringing him in for more sessions down the road!
