I'm pretty sure this is a first ever on my blog because this blog is all about books! It's my primary passion. :) I do so love music though. I grew up hearing music all around me. My parents both love music and that love has been passed down. I just couldn't pass up the chance to review this music CD. I was so excited to listen to it.
"Good to Me" is Hudson Lights' debut album. These four men have a great sound. I haven't had the chance to hear them sing live yet but hopefully I will someday soon.
The CD was very enjoyable. It covers a few well known songs that I found myself singing along to. I liked that there was some familiarity to the CD as well as some songs I wasn't familiar with. It had just the right amount to keep me humming along and listening. There were all kinds of music genres grooving and I really enjoyed that.
Mostly I would say that "Good To Me" is just an album that makes you feel good. It's easy listening. Happy. It's an album that I will be listening to over and over. The "Call Me Maybe" song below will give you a good taste of what the album is like. I hope you enjoy it!
HUDSON LIGHTS will release their self-titled debut album November 12, 2013. They released a single, “Good to Me”, on iTunes in September.
The group is composed of four male vocal artists from around the country: McKay Crockett, Keith Evans, Joseph Moore and Ross Welch. Together they create a fresh fusion of contemporary pop and jazz music.
The upbeat album features classic covers of legends like Frank Sinatra and The Beatles. They also have several original songs.
Bob Ahlander, director of music at Shadow Mountain Records, says “Hudson Lights fills a void in the music scene.”
They have already had some notable performances. They debuted at the Marriot Center during the BYU Women’s Conference Concert in May, and placed 2nd in a contest to open for Kelly Clarkson at the STADIUM OF FIRE in June.
On November 22nd they’ll perform for a crowd of 10,000 as part of Deseret Book’s “Time Out for Women” event at the Maverik Center. Tickets are available here.
