Composed of 4 vocal artists from the Rocky Mountains, Hudson Lights creates a fresh fusion of contemporary pop and jazz like you’ve never heard before! World-class harmonies and consummate showmanship make this an unforgettable music experience. Equal parts thrilling, inspiring, and effortlessly charming, Hudson Lights brings a classy edge back to mainstream pop.

I'm no music buff but I know when something sounds awful and the Hudson Lights crew is definitely not one of them! This sharp and handsome looking group offers a home in classy music. The selection in this CD demonstrated an eclectic sample of their delightful harmony vocals and with the accompaniment of a fabulous orchestra, the musical experience was even better!  You'll find calming dinner music, classic jazz, and upbeat pop that had me automatically bopping my heading, snapping my fingers, and swaying my hips all over the place it's embarrassing!  Throughout the whole listening experience I was imagining myself dancing to these songs on Dancing With The Stars (I'm an incredible dancer in my head but in real life ..well, not so much!  Hehe.) because the song selections can play out in a ballroom ..from slow elegant to fast paced dance categories.  Sincerely, this sophisticated vocal group was easy on the ears and brought pep in my step. 

Thank you Hudson Lights for sharing your talent!  Your renditions warmed my musical hungry soul.

More About Hudson Lights:

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.

Sample: "Call Me Maybe" (oddly enough this song wasn't in the CD)
