Hogarth formed Kid Gloves Records in partnership with David Joseph at Universal Records in 2008. There are currently four solo artists signed to the label : Ren Harvieu, Nathan O’Regan, Bo Keeney and Georgia Mason. The first release from the label was the single "Through The Night" (February 2012) from Ren Harvieu.

In 2005, he was introduced to Welsh singer Duffy and went on to contribute four tracks, including the single "Warwick Avenue" to her five million selling debut album Rockferry.

In 2008, he received a Grammy award for his work on the Suzanne Vega album, Beauty & Crime.[1]

Hogarth is a fan of soul music such as Sam Cooke and Aretha Franklin, but admits to listening to heavy rock during his youth.[2]

In the late 1990s he contributed guitar work to the singles "Strangelove" and "Modern Times" by the band Breaker.

He currently lives and works in London with his wife, former Black Box Recorder vocalist Sarah Nixey whom he married in late 2010. He has a son, Reuben (born late 2007), and a daughter Lola born 11 December 2012. He also acts as step-father to Nixey's daughter from her previous marriage.
