“The bottom line is globetrotter Hudson’s soul, folk, dance-pop, funk and latin standards as skilful and casual as ever…”
– Diabolo Mox online magazine, Germany
Simon Hudson is a singer-songwriter whose highly original music weaves a captivating blend of world, roots and folk, with influences including Carlinhos Brown, The Cat Empire, Jose Gonzalez, Neil Finn, and Paul Simon. Based in Melbourne, Australia, he’s toured throughout Europe, Latin America and Australia.
His new album Aguas Profundas was launched globally (Jun 2023) on label Songs & Whispers (Germany), distributed by Broken Silence (Germany) and published by Sentric Music (UK). The first single Looking For A Map with film clip deals with feeling lost during the coronavirus pandemic, and looking for a map to navigate the way out. The second single One More Chance says – when everything seems lost, why not ask the world for one more chance?
Previous releases include the genre-hopping EP Islands (2020), crowd-funded album Earthman (Aug 2016), and debut EP Time And Space (2012), a remarkable showcase of skilled songwriting, addictive roots rhythms and honest lyricism. His five international tours from 2014-2019, interrupted by the global coronavirus pandemic, have included European festivals, German national radio, Cuban national TV, and pan-American radio.
