About Hudson Taylor
Hudson Taylor (previously Harry & Alfie) are an Irish folk duo formed in 2011. The duo consists of brothers Harry and Alfie Hudson-Taylor. They are signed to Rubyworks Records. The brothers grew up in Dublin, where their father was a musician and their mother was a dancer. Prior to being signed, they released their debut EP, Battles, in August 2012, which peaked at #1 on the Irish version of iTunes and at #14 on the UK version of iTunes. 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 debut album, Singing for Strangers (a reference to the band’s earlier busking), which was released in January 2015 in Ireland and the UK. Following the conclusion of the groups recording deal with Polydor in February 2016, Hudson Taylor were signed to Rubyworks in Ireland. They are managed by Caroline Downey, who also manages fellow label-mate Hozier.
