Hudson Taylor Biography

Hudson Taylor (previously Harry & Alfie)[1] are an Irish folk duo formed in 2011. The duo consists of brothers Harry and Alfie Hudson-Taylor. They are signed to Rubyworks Records.[2] 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.[3] In November 2012, the band followed with a second EP, "Cinematic Lifestyle" and a third, "Osea", in October 2013. It was around this time that the band signed to Polydor in the UK.

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.[4] It included the single "Chasing Rubies", which entered the UK Singles Chart at #51.[4]

Following the conclusion of the groups recording deal with Polydor in February 2016 Hudson Taylor were signed[5] to Rubyworks in Ireland. They are managed by Caroline Downey,[6] who also manages fellow label-mate Hozier.
