Harry Hudson is an American singer/songwriter from Los Angeles, California. His sound can best be described as ‘Pop-Americana,’ tying together his folk-rock and pop influences to create a stylized cinematic quality. Hudson was born in New Jersey in 1993 and moved to Los Angeles with his family when he was four years old. Harry developed a taste for various types of music throughout his teens, including the work of Johnny Cash, Eminem, Bruce Springsteen, and eventually decided to pursue songwriting himself. The singer released his first song, "World Is Gone," online in 2013. However, during June of that year, Hudson was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma and set his career aside to undergo treatment. After eight months of chemotherapy, he overcame the illness in January 2014. Harry spent the subsequent year rediscovering his inspirations and got to work writing his debut release. In 2015 he independently released two EPs, The Treatment (A-Side) and Gemineyes. The former featured songs he had written during chemotherapy, with lyrics primarily focused on his experience, while the latter was co-written with close friend and collaborator gnash. Hudson went on to release the "Cry for Love" single via MSFTSmusic/Roc Nation through their Interscope Records partnership in the fall of 2017.
JP Saxe is an R&B leaning, lyric obsessed singer/songwriter from Toronto. Subtle yet deliberate, Saxe’s music is all about detailed moments that bring you intimately close to his emotional perspective. His grandfather, Janos Starker, often regarded as the greatest cellist of the 20th century, pushed him to explore creating beauty through his own expressions: lyricism and songwriting.
JP’s debut single “Changed,” a deeply affecting alt-R&B song with trance-like piano, synth and vocal layering, takes us through a journey of how our past relationships, communities, and past selves inform the way in which we move forward and grow. “Changed” is the first of many from a collection of songs that live between two different worlds - the hazy production of artists like Frank Ocean, and the lyricism of those like Jason Isbell.
“Anybody Else” shows us his carnal side with sensual lyrics and a kaleidoscope of blurry synth lines and cascading guitar tones. With his latest single “The Few Things,” Saxe guide listeners through the subtle intimacies that makeup a relationship. On the accompanying music video, Saxe shares, “It’s the first video I’ve directed (along with Dina Shihabi) and it is so biographical, it made the process of creating it, at points, kind of uncomfortable... but if it’s not real, what’s the point? Even if it’s a little too real sometimes.”
