Now Playing On the Festival Circuit

Hailed by Musical Notes Global (New York) as “a true Renaissance woman” Aminah Hughes has won local and international awards as a musician, producer, screenwriter, director and photographer.

An Australian Roots artist playing somewhere in between the worlds of Folk, Alt-Country, Blues, Jazz and Spoken Word, she appeared on 11 albums in Australia and Europe before producing her debut solo album Blue Wooden Boat. Recorded in Ireland, USA, Australia and Germany, the album features special guest Tommy Emmanuel, Waterboys fiddler Steve Wickham and Nashville gospel singers, The McCrary Sisters, and has earned her a number of accolades including two wins and a nomination at the Independent Music Awards in New York. The album was produced on Aminah’s independent label Blue Wolf Records and is distributed worldwide by MGM.

In 2019 Aminah established Sky Woman Productions. Her music video productions have premiered in Nashville, New York and Melbourne, received awards in Australia and New York and gone on to screen in festivals in Berlin, Prague, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Austin, London, Toronto, Manchester, Melbourne and Paris. Her short screenplays have gained recognition in Austin, LA, New York, UK, Australia and Italy and already demonstrate Aminah’s diverse approach to storytelling. With a feature screenplay in development, she is currently in post-production on short drama, SOLACE.

In 2021 Aminah relocated to Los Angeles. Her LA directorial debut, “What Are We Fighting For (If It Ain’t Love)?” a collaboration with American actor Dylan Kussman, premiered on September 23rd.

“Trying to pin down what this singer can do with her voice is hard because she can do some amazing things – she can belt out a roof-raising blues tune just as readily as she can deliver a folk tune sweet enough to make you cry”

– Nadia Mitsopoulos, ABC Radio Perth


“A hint of Eva Cassidy’s vocal versatility and interpretive powers”

– The Weekend Australian
