Harrison Hudson is a Nashville-based singer songwriter that I met sometime this year in Austin while he was likely making fun of my friend and I as we sold merchandise out of a suitcase. It seems like tough business writing songs in Nashville, a place where you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who found themselves there for reasons otherwise. A place where Christian rock royalty greets the Country-Blues Empire, the last remaining city where the music hasn’t died. And the rest are left with no ears to hear their carefully crafted prose.
It’s a real shame, because there are a few fine gems down there. Harrison being one of them. I feel like he’s got that thing, you know? He’s hopelessly in love with love, and his songs are simply about that. Then of course, there’s that Southern charm that we’re running a deficit on up in these Northern parts, with only Southern counterfeits and influences, but there is no substitute for that real Southern drawl. This is a rather old video of Harrison playing ‘Katy Perry, Could You Fall In Love With Me’. But he’s got some new songs up on his blog- so check them out.
