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


"Review of EP 'Time and Space'"

Your album is FANTASTIC- congratulations!! Keeps taking my breath away… - Genevieve Wilkins, percussionist with Stomp & Lionel Richie, London


"Croud review for 'Today' - I absolutely love..."

I absolutely love the verses after the chorus, when the cello came in, I got chills! The audio quality of this song is incredible. - Kind croud reviewer


"Crowd review for 'Today' - I am a big fan..."

...I am a big fan of the lead's interesting lyrics & his emotive vocal melodies; I am altogether a fan of his. He's genuinely emotive, his instrumental is emotive & all talents are well-balanced throughout... - Kind crowd reviewer


"Songwriting"

Exploring a blend of inter-cultural music influences with classic 70s troubadour sound [Simon Hudson] has a strong sense of melody, harmony and - significantly for his genre - groove. - Greg Arnold, Things of Stone and Wood, The Swamp Dandies


"Review of 'I Know You'll Be Alright'"

I really like the acoustic guitar melody, and it contrasts well with the lead vocals. I also like the backing singer's harmonic accompaniment, it adds to great effect of the song! The recording is very crisp, with nice upbeat lyrics. A really moving and entertaining track, thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. - ReverbNation crowd reviewer

Simon Hudson is a guitarist singer-songwriter whose highly original music weaves a captivating blend of world, roots and folk, with influences including The Cat Empire, Jose Gonzalez, Neil Finn, and Paul Simon. Based in Melbourne, he has toured with his band throughout Europe and Australia and played festivals, bars and countless rooms of happy music-lovers.


Simon Hudson Band’s 2012 EP Time And Space is a remarkable showcase of skilled songwriting, addictive roots rhythms and honest lyricism. For their live show they take a flexible approach in the delivery of their songs to suit the mood required, whether it be acoustic with strings, full band with percussion and horn section, or a straight-up roots trio.


On September 19th they will launch their new album ‘Earthman’ at the Thornbury Theatre, Melbourne in a spectacular show with special guests. They have released three singles from the album. ’Do Me A Favour’ is a groove-based funk stomper, ‘Never Knew Why’, an infectious roots anthem; and ‘I Know You’ll Be Alright’, an Afro-influenced ballad. Funds for the album were raised using crowd funder Pozible, their fan-base investing more than $10,000 into backing the ongoing success of their music.


In Jan 2016 their ‘Flight of the Earthman’ tour will take them through regional Victoria to Adelaide, then up the east coast to Sydney. This will be followed by a European tour in July, including Germany, Netherlands and Belgium.
