Hudson Valley is a female-fronted band rooted in country vocals with a rock-infused sound, delivered with a healthy dash of sass, like only lead singer Sarah Owens can. After landing in Nashville in 2018 from her home state of New York, Owens hit the ground running with a group of musical kindred spirits. With Richie Owens on drums, Andrew Kosek on bass, and Matt Farinelli on 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. ‘𝘽𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙫𝙖𝙨𝙩 𝙞𝙣𝙛𝙡𝙪𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚𝙨, 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙤𝙣𝙜𝙨𝙩𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙡𝙨 𝙪𝙨, “𝙒𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙗𝙚𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙨𝙤 𝙝𝙚𝙖𝙫𝙞𝙡𝙮 𝙞𝙣𝙛𝙡𝙪𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚𝙙 𝙗𝙮 𝙧𝙤𝙘𝙠 𝙢𝙪𝙨𝙞𝙘, 𝙃𝙪𝙙𝙨𝙤𝙣 𝙑𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙮 𝙞𝙨 [𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮] 𝙖 𝙧𝙤𝙘𝙠 𝙗𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙧𝙮 𝙡𝙮𝙧𝙞𝙘𝙨.”'[NYCountrySwag]
Since its inception in 2018, Hudson Valley has quickly become a Music City staple playing venues such as 3rd and Lindsley, The listening room, and The Bluebird Café. The band has even earned themselves coveted residencies at The Sutler Saloon, The Omni Hotel, and Blake Shelton’s Ole Red. They have graced the infamous Whiskey Jam stage several times as well as appearing on 'Good Morning Nashville' WSMV News Channel 5 as their musical guests. In May of 2019, Hudson Valley's EP “Seven” debuted at #17 on the iTunes Country Album Chart, an achievement they are very proud of. 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, and the subsequent music video is still in heavy rotation at all 'Ole Red' locations. Their single (Unmistakable Signs of a) Bad Boyfriend grew in popularity all the way up to #41 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart in early 2020. Most recently Hudson Valley has released two new singles "Tell Him" and "Right Place Now" with the latter making its country radio debut in 2021. "After their EP last year, which contained seven amazing songs, I wasn’t sure how they could improve on that effort. However, “Right Place Now” did just that! An up-tempo jam to get us through the rest of the summer. Sarah Owens’ vocal talent is undeniable!"[UndiscoveredNashville] Hudson Valley's songs have been streamed over 100,000 times adding to their fan base daily, this group is creating quite a buzz up and down Music Row!
