Kenny shares that “I got the idea for ‘Midnight Man’ when I was briefly living in Bloemfontein. It was ahead of a festival ‘Rockin Bloem’, and I had a few friends over joining me at the fest. Whilst sitting around I strummed a few chord progressions and randomly sang what would become the chorus, ‘I'm a midnight man’. My good friend Phillru Van Achterbergh told me he liked the sound of that. Coupled with the chord progression and funky rhythm, he suggested I roll with it. The song was complete not long after. That's essentially what the song is about, the fact that I do most of my best work after midnight. When the rest of the world is asleep, our creativity as musicians keeps us awake. As with most of my singles to date, ‘Midnight Man’ was recorded at Pariah Studios alongside the one and only Evert Snyman. The two of us made it what it is today.”

South African travelling Blues Rock Singer-Songwriter Kenny Hughes has been a, Blues & Rock Musician for the past 6 years, having an amazing time meeting new people, seeing new places and playing my music at great venues on his journey.
