Hudson Taylor are brothers from the southern suburbs of Dublin who write beguiling folk songs. They’ve already amassed a huge underground following – their songs have had over two and a half million YouTube views already. They will release their new EP, Osea, on October 13th through Polydor Records. The Osea EP’s lead track ‘Care’ is produced by Florence & The Machine and Ed Sheeran collaborator Charlie Hugall and is a gentle, lolloping anthem with captivating dual harmonies.

Hudson Taylor have spent a large chunk of 2013 perfecting their live show and this year alone have played to over 200,000 people. Over the past six months, they’ve supported Jake Bugg and The Rolling Stones, as well as pitching up at a variety of festivals includingGlastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival and Bestival.
