Introducing: Hudson Taylor

Share Button

Dublin brothers Harry and Alfie Hudson-Taylor have been uploading videos to Youtube, and gigging on a small scale for a number of years now, and it seems it’s paying off. From starting out busking on the streets (…or poles and bins in Harry’s case!) of Dublin, and uploading videos to Youtube, to now being included in the line-up for the Cheerios Childline Concert 2012, is some achievement.

To be fair, the last few months have been very exciting and progressive for the male duo in general. Between releasing their debut EP Battles in August, and playing to a massive crowd in Hyde Park during the Olympics, I think it’s clear that the lads are shooting forward. With their music being described as essentially acoustic folk-pop, you can imagine the initial reaction of most people- “kind of like Mumford & Sons?”, when, in fact, Hudson Taylor have such a unique sound to their music which you won’t get from any other artist. With Harry’s ability to play pretty much any instrument on the planet, and Alfie’s incredibly unique voice, along with their intense, yet quirky style, these guys will be a major deal.

Hudson Taylor are set to play in the Academy 2, Dublin, on December 21st, and it’s likely that it will be the last time we see them in such an intimate venue for a good while. These guys are going places fast, and there’ll be no stopping them!
