The latest Studio Series Session from the team at Editors Keys has travelled to New York City to catch up with Brielle Von Hugel.

Brielle Von Hugel the 20 year old pop-soul singer/ songwriter from New York City rose to stardom on the hit show American Idol back in 2012 when the 16 year old from Staten Island blew the judges away with her rendition of Mariah Carey's Endless Love.

Going through to the live show, Brielle obviously made a name for herself and wowed the country! Now she has teamed up with Studio Series Session's in New York City, and has even found some time to answer a few questions!

We set up the SL600 USB Microphone and recorded the session.  



How long have you been performing for?

I have been publicly performing since I was 5 years old.


When did you know singing was what you wanted to do?

I knew that singing was going to be more than just a hobby at around the age of 8

American Idol? Could you tell us a little bit more about that experience?

Sure. I was a contestant on Season 10 + 11. At the age of 17, I went on to the semi-finals (Season 11) to become one of the Top 12 girls in America. Truly a privilege. My American Idol experience taught me so much about show business and myself. I have become a better performer and a true artist. I am so grateful that at my young age I was able to experience something so huge.

Do you play any musical instruments?

Guitar. Still learning!

How do you find the song writing process?

I absolutely love song writing! It has become one of my favorite things to do! I love being able to share my thoughts with the world with so many different genres and sounds.

Who are your favourite bands/singers...dead & alive?

Christina Aguilera, Tori Kelly, Celine Dion, Amy Winehouse


Where are you currently at now? Do you have more tours lined up or gigs?

I have just released my debut EP, "Turns to Gold" I have currently playing shows all over NYC and the tri-state area with my band!

Any plans to come the UK?

Yes! I am looking forward to planing a tour around the U.S. and I eventually making it over to the UK! I would love for my voice and music to be heard all over the world. It would be a dream come true!

And finally how did you find working with the SL600 USB Microphone :)

Editors Keys is awesome! It was an absolute pleasure to use the SL600 USB microphone and be featured on their Studio Series Sessions. Great mic, great sound!
