Simon Hudson Band / Bio

"Handclaps, hazel-eyed soul and acoustic honesty"
Mikey’s Must-See Three, Hit magazine, Herald Sun

"Your album is FANTASTIC- congratulations!! Keeps taking my breath away..."
Genevieve Wilkins, Ensemble Bash, London

"It's good to know that there's so much great music being produced by local, independent bands as SHB. Keep it coming!"
Adrian Hook, ‘New Grooves’, 96.5 Inner FM

Simon Hudson Band’s highly original music weaves a captivating blend of contemporary roots, folk and latin music. Their EP 'Time And Space' is a captivating vignette of skilled songwriting - addictive hues of roots rhythms go hand-in-hand with honest lyricism. With influences including The Cat Empire & Jose Gonzalez, Simon Hudson Band has toured around Australia, played at festivals & summer beer gardens, supported local Melbourne legends, recorded in freezing winter, played on the radio, churches and country halls, and rocked countless rooms full of happy punters. They are now set to take the world by storm with their debut album due later this year.
