Irish duo brothers Harry and Alfie Hudson Taylor have just released their ‘Feel It Again’ EP. Their first new music since their album “Singing for Strangers” debuted in 2015. The EP, which charted Top 5 in the Irish Album Charts, gives their fans the first taste of Hudson Taylor’s forthcoming second album, which has been produced by Ryan Hadlock, best known for his work with The Lumineers and Vance Joy, and is being mixed by Ruadhri Cushnan (Mumford & Son, Ed Sheeran). Building on the success of the debut album, which was produced by Iain Archer (James Bay, Jake Bugg), and featured three big hits: – ‘Chasing Rubies’, ‘Battles’ and ‘Weapons’; the multi-talented siblings enjoyed a busy year. They played to one of the biggest crowds of the weekend at the Electric Picnic festival last September, and their lead-off Irish single “Feel It Again” was one of the biggest national airplay hits of 2017. 2018 has seen sold-out tours of the UK and Europe, and an exciting US tour with Gabrielle Aplin. Ireland saw the second single ‘Run With Me’ in the airplay Top 10.
Navigating between elegiac folk and accessible pop, Toronto’s Ben Kunder has emerged as one of the most sought after and electrifying live musicians on the Canadian indie scene. His 2015 debut “Golden” garnered critical acclaim and airplay.
