Singer & Songwriter ROALD (Al Roald Hughes) is a Derbyshire, England native who started in fashion, where he studied (menswear) design at the London College of Fashion, finishing with a First Degree with Honors. But music was always in his blood from a very early age, writing songs and lyrics as a child and paying his dues while learning vocal techniques in various bands and local choirs. With strong, deep rooted influences ranging from 80’s icons including Alison Moyet & George Michael to current singer/songwriter/Grammy & Oscar winner Adele, ROALD is a songwriter who writes from experience about real world events and situations, staying away from sugary lyrics and disposable pop tracks. As he explains it, Moment of Glory is the “telling of how real talented or gifted people often don’t ever seem like they will gain any support or respect for their art or endeavors through not quite having enough confidence to take the ultimate step. Anything can happen, if only we believe it. The song is not about fame and fortune, it’s about conviction, faith and acceptance.“
