Hudson Taylor

Hudson Taylor make their debut performance at The Landmark Central on Friday, January 27.

Previously Harry & Alfie, they are an Irish folk duo formed in 2011. The duo consists of brothers Harry and Alfie Hudson-Taylor, who are signed to Polydor Records in the UK. They grew up in Dublin, where their father was a musician and their mother was a dancer.

They began busking at a young age. Prior to being signed they released their début EP, "Battles", in August 2012, which peaked at #1 on the Irish version of iTunes and at #14 on UK version of iTunes. In November 2012, the band followed with a second EP, "Cinematic Lifestyle" and a third, "Osea" in October 2013.  Work began on a full-length début album, Singing for Strangers (a reference to the band's earlier busking), which was released in January 2015 in Ireland and the UK. 

Singing for Strangers peaked at number 3 in Ireland and number 24 in the UK.  It included their most popular single to date "Chasing Rubies". Catch the duo perform all their hits this January at The Landmark.
