Introducing…Hudson Taylor

Irish duo, brothers Harry and Alfie, released their long awaited debut album “Singing for Strangers” in 2015. The multi-instrumentalists had honed their craft busking on the streets of their hometown of Dublin as well as all over Europe and in fact gained the albums name from their love of entertaining anyone who would stop and listen. Millions of people did stop by and look at their YouTube videos and there were already several well-loved songs on the album by the time it was released. Produced by the band and long-term collaborator Iain Archer with help from Mike Einziger and Danton Supple in London, LA and Eastbourne the record features hit songs “Chasing Rubies”, “Battles” and “Weapons”.

The muses of La Musa: Caroline Rose

An obsession with money, an unfaithful lover, a friend’s accidental pregnancy, misogyny, loneliness, death… This is just some of the lighthearted subject matter that make up LONER––the darkly comedic second album from songwriter/producer Caroline Rose. Armed with an arsenal of new instruments and equipment, an ever-growing sense of “ahhh fuck it,” two years of exploration, and a wicked sense of humor, Rose delivers a set of serious songs wrapped in a sprightly, angsty pop burrito. Because, as Rose puts it, “Sometimes sad songs just need a cocktail”.

“I call it Schizodrift,” she says sipping on a martini with her pinky out. “I want to make music that sounds as manic as I feel.” Filled with catchy synth hooks, Ray Manzarek-esque Farfisa, surf guitar, depth of thought and a punk attitude, LONER captures the energy of bands like Le Tigre and The Cramps, and nods to the styles of Blondie and DEVO, the pop hooks of icons like Justin Timberlake, all the while being inspired by the artistry of Kate Bush.
