I really like this CD! I generally prefer '70s music to contemporary pop, but I now make an exception for Hudson Lights. The vocal harmonies and the orchestrations for all eleven songs on the CD are excellent.
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
My favorite song is a great jazz arrangement of the Lennon/McCartney hit Eleanor Rigby. Other outstanding songs on the CD include a Big-Band arrangement of George and Ira Gershwin's Can't Take That Away and the Hall & Oates hit You Make My Dreams Come True.
There's not a bad song to be found on the CD. And with the holidays coming up, keep in mind what Mr Ronco used to say, "It makes a great gift!" At least one person on my gift list will be getting Hudson Lights for Christmas this year.
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.
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.
