About Hudson Valley:
Hudson Valley is a female-fronted band rooted in country vocals with a rock-infused sound and delivered with a healthy dash of sass, like only lead singer Sarah Owens can. Forming in Nashville Tennessee in 2018, the singer hit the ground running with Richie Owens(drums), Andrew Kosek(bass), and Matthew Farinelli(guitar). The foursome combined their influences in the rock, punk rock, and country music genres to create a sound that is authentically and uniquely Hudson Valley.
Hudson Valley has quickly become a Music City staple selling out venues such as The Listening Room, 3rd and Lindsley, and The Bluebird Café. They have earned themselves coveted residencies with The Sutler Saloon, Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row, and most recognizably Blake Shelton’s Ole Red.
In May of 2019, Hudson Valley’s EP “Seven” debuted at #17 on the iTunes Country Album Chart. The debut single “Can’t Have Nothin’ Nice” garnered the band their first taste of Country Radio after being picked up by Radio Disney Country. Their single “(Unmistakable Signs of a) Bad Boyfriend” grew in popularity to #41 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart in early 2020. Hudson Valley’s “Right Place Now”, released in early 2021, has earned the band their first Top 40 single making its way up to #34 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart. The band’s most recent release “Shut Me Up” is their take on an Old Dominion single from 2015 and is getting a lot of praise from fans and music journalists alike. With a handful of new songs to be released in 2022, Hudson Valley is making quite a buzz up and down Music Row!”
