Brian Hudson is an Austin, TX based singer-songwriter. In October of 2010, he released his first solo album, Into the Black. He's been touring regionally around Texas in support of the album since then, and is in the midst of planning a tour for the summer of 2011.
He can be found in Austin at Romeo's on Sunday nights making music with friends, and occasionally he performs with some bands around town including Me and B (featuring the Belleville Outfit), The Ashes, and Jack Wilson.
As half of the original folk band, The Hudsons, Brian had a productive eight years of music-making. He and his band mate, Hudson Mueller, played with some fine musicians like the Belleville Outfit's Phoebe Hunt, Wall Street's Jason Vopni, and Los Angeles's Leah Zeger. They were named "Best Folk Band" by the Austin Chronicle Readers' Poll in '07 and '09. They held a steady gig for most of their time as a band at Austin's Waterloo Icehouse at 6th and Lamar. They won two-years-in-a-row ('02 and '03) the University of Texas/Kerrville Folk Festival college songwriting award during their tenure at UT-Austin. They were featured main-stage acts at a variety of festivals around the USA and Canada including Kerrville Folk Festival, Live from the Rock, and Cornstalk. They played some prestigious folk music venues including the Cactus Cafe, Gruene Hall, the M-Room, Anderson Fair, the Old Quarter Acoustic Cafe, the Mucky Duck, and Threadgill's. They released three full-length albums (which received spins from Austin's KUT, KO-OP, and KVRX, Houston's KPFT, Bryan's KEOS, Duluth's KUMD, and even CBC-Ontario) and produced a handful of music videos in New York and Austin with MTV's the Sniper Twins. And in 2007, the City of Austin named a day in November "The Hudsons Day."
In 2008, Brian co-founded a short-lived rock group called the Nasty Clan, which recorded two EPs.
