Hudson Taylor
Hudson Taylor
Irish duo, brothers Harry and Alfie Hudson Taylor, released their debut album “Singing for Strangers” in 2015. The multi-talented siblings having honed their craft busking on the streets of their hometown of Dublin as well as cities all over Europe. The album, which was produced by Iain Archer (James Bay, Jake Bugg), featured three big hits - ‘Chasing Rubies’, ‘Battles’ and ‘Weapons’.

Hudson Taylor are currently putting the finishing touches to their 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).

The band enjoyed a very successful 2017, playing to one of the biggest crowds of the weekend at the Electric Picnic festival in September, and their lead-off Irish single “Feel It Again” was one of the biggest national airplay hits of 2017. Hudson Taylor’s Irish autumn tour was a sell-out and they also played huge shows with Picture This, The Script and Kodaline.

Fresh from a sold out UK and European tour in support of their brand new single "Run with me" Hudson Taylor are excited and delighted to support Gabrielle Aplin on her upcoming US and Canadian tour.
John Splithoff
John Splithoff
If it’s true that we are all products of our environment, then the multi-talented songwriter, singer and instrumentalist John Splithoff finds himself imbued with the vital and eclectic spirit of two of America’s most diverse musical cities. One listen to his smoky, soulful croon and the breezy way his songs half-step and skip smoothly along the stage, and his hometown Chicago roots are obvious. It was there that Splithoff cut his teeth as a songwriter and performer, and he carried that warm, compositional adventurousness with him to his next and current stop in New York City. The urban soul of the Big Apple taught him to treat the swarms of people buzzing around him as an audience ripe for his evolving pop sound. As Splithoff has grown and moved across various gritty concrete landscapes, so too has his music, which deftly incorporates myriad elements from his surroundings and packages them into one unmistakable pop-soul-dance-urban experience.

Splithoff’s style is far from the kitchen-sink mentality permeating much of today’s airwaves: one of his strongest skills may be his ability to draw from his deep bag of tricks—piano, guitar, melody, rhythm— with precision and harnessed emotion. Now, 2016 finds him writing, touring, and releasing new material, with his sights set on expanding well beyond the two cities of his origin. To paraphrase Splithoff’s own confident delivery and assurances in his high-climbing, finger-snapping statement of a single, “Sing to You”: You don’t have to worry about a single thing, just let him sing to you…
