Hudson Taylor have announced that they will be supporting Jake Bugg on his UK tour in February.Hudson Taylor
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 favourite with their energetic live shows.
Their DIY work ethic led them to release their debut EP on their own label Craic Records and entirely under their own steam they charted the Battles EP at no.14 on iTunes UK and no. 1 in Ireland. 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. You can see why people are talking. And for Hudson Taylor, this is only the beginning.
