Hugh Wilson
Unidirectional
by Karla Ash
10.01.06

With his exotic good looks (he’s a long-haired Australian, should I say more?) and rich, powerful voice, Hugh Wilson has an aura of Next Big Thing about him. In Australia, he actually scored a hit with his earlier band Vertigo. Now based in New York, Wilson has a distinctly American sound. On “Steal A Heart,” Wilson does exactly what the title says; his romantic vocals croon with the sex appeal of a smooth operator. Lyrically, Wilson sounds better heard than read; it’s the performances, and not the writing, that sell these songs.

Because his music is so straightforward and melodic, Wilson is going to be find a number of women, old and young, in his fan base. (His physical appearance will do that, too.) Once in a while I like hearing a record that doesn’t tax my brain or eardrums;
Unidirectional fits the bill. For the most part, these are tunes that you can hum along with and feel better about life.
