Get your toes ready to tap—we’re excited to introduce new music
group Hudson Lights, whose debut album came out
earlier this week. The album features classic covers of legends like Frank
Sinatra and The Beatles along with two original songs. Their sound has been
described as “contemporary pop and jazz music.” In fact, you might recognize these guys from their cover of U2's hit, Beautiful
Bob Ahlander, director of music at Shadow Mountain Records, says Hudson Lights fills a void in the music scene. “I have looked for something like this for the past 2-3 years. There simply isn't another group like them anywhere. They bring classic four-part harmonies back to mainstream music in way that is fresh and engaging. I am super excited about the possibilities.”
What we’re especially in love with here at LDS Living, is how clean the non-religious music is from Hudson Lights (perfect for anyone on your Christmas list—LDS or not!). And this style is so reflective of Hudson Lights members McKay Crockett, Keith Evans, Joseph Moore and Ross Welch, who are all just gems. In fact, we ran into Hudson Lights at the American Fork Deseret Book store—check how truly sweet these guys are:
