Their acoustic, folky sound with close vocal harmonies and a heavy '60s influence made some of their songs reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel
or Bob Dylan
, but their equal love for contemporary pop meant others had a more modern feel. After their move to London, the brothers lived for a time with then-unsigned English folk-pop starlet Gabrielle Aplin
, with whom they have collaborated on a number of songs. Later, she and Alfie began dating. The EPs, Cinematic Lifestyle, Osea, Holly and debut LP Singing For Strangers further increased Hudson Taylor's visibility.
From the release of their debut album in 2015 until their the release of the single Feel it Again in 2017 the Hudson Taylor brothers toured extensively around Europe and also established a new home for their music with Irish independent record label Rubyworks. In 2018 they are set to release lots of new music and continue to tour the globe.
