The performer, Hugh Ruiz, said: “It’s been a few years out of the Sheffield scene for me as I became a parent of beautiful twins four years ago.

"As a consequence of lockdown, I taught myself how to record, write, play and sing music all on my own, all of which I’d never done before.”

Hear his first single, Morning, on, which he intends to follow up with an LP of his new work.
