HUDSON LIGHTS will release their self-titled debut album November 12, 2013. They released a single, “Good to Me”, on iTunes in September. The group is composed of four male vocal artists from around the country: McKay Crockett, Keith Evans, Joseph Moore and Ross Welch. Together they create a fresh fusion of contemporary pop and jazz music. The upbeat album features classic covers of legends like Frank Sinatra and The Beatles. They also have several original songs. Bob Ahlander, director of music at Shadow Mountain Records, says “Hudson Lights fills a void in the music scene.” They have already had some notable performances. They debuted at the Marriot Center during the BYU Women’s Conference Concert in May, and placed 2nd in a contest to open for Kelly Clarkson at the STADIUM OF FIRE in June. On November 22nd they’ll perform for a crowd of 10,000 as part of Deseret Book’s “Time Out for Women” event at the Maverik Center. Tickets are available here.
This blog is mostly for book reviews, but I was given the opportunity to review an album, and after hearing a sample of Hudson Lights' music, I wanted to help share their talent.
Like most albums I've heard, there are some excellent songs, and others that I didn't really love. But, even if some of the songs weren't really my thing, I have to say that these guys have excellent voices! They have a great sound, and I'd recommend checking them out.
My absolute favorite song on the album is the first song, "Hold On to Me". While I'd heard most of the other songs the group covered before, this one was new to me and I loved it!
The Album has 11 songs, some old and some new:
Hold On To Me
Good To Me
You Make My Dreams Come True
The Nearness of You
Love Never Fails
Can't Take That Away
Poor Wayfaring Stranger
"Call Me Maybe"
