Hudson Taylor are Irish brothers Harry and Alfie and hail from Dublin. Born of musician father and dancing mother it was probably inevitable the young Hudson-Taylor brothers would enter into the world of entertainment.
They were busking on the streets of Dublin in their teens covering Beach Boys and Beatles songs and performing their own compositions under the name Harry and Alfie. The boys decided to upload music videos to YouTube which sparked a very favourable response. They then decided to self-release an E.P. of songs in 2011 but it was the "Battles" E.P. in 2012 that catapulted them forward. Such was the great feedback to the set of songs (Number 1 on the iTunes Irish chart and number 14 on the British) they were persuaded to move to London and begin a music career, within a year they had a contract with Polydor.
