Hudson Taylor Biography

Having honed their craft at an early age busking in Dublin, the brothers - Alfie and Harry (Hudson Taylor is their surname) - still only 18 and 20 respectively, have become a word-of-mouth favourite with their energetic live shows. Their DIY work ethic led Hudson Taylor to the release of their debut EP, Battles, in August last year reaching the summit of the iTunes Ireland charts and no. 14 in iTunes UK. This was followed up by their Cinematic Lifestyle EP in November. Drawing inspiration from their parents' record collection - Simon & Garfunkel and Crosby, Stills & Nash are cited as particular favourites - the brothers fuse classic and contemporary influences to create raw, folk-infused melodic pop that puts them in the same bracket as Michael Kiwanuka and Ben Howard. At times stomping and spirited, at others stripped back to only acoustic guitars, Hudson Taylor possess that rare talent to combine energy and intimacy into their performances.
