 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.

My Review:
I have very eclectic music tastes so I was intrigued by Hudson Lights.  I thoroughly enjoyed their self-titled debut.  If you enjoy a jazzy take on pop then this is just the band for you to enjoy.  I loved the covers and the original music alike.  I found it fun to listen to "Beautiful Day" (originally by U2) and then their own "Good To Me" as well.  "Eleanor Rigby" (The Beatles) was also a lot of fun.  I think my favorite was "Autumn Leaves". All-in-all I found this to be a great CD for a go-to listen when I'm feeling a little more mellow or when I just want to feel happy.  I wish these four artists the best of luck and I hope to see many more CDs from them in the future!
