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 Matthew 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.
Since its inception in 2018, Hudson Valley has quickly become a Music City staple. 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, 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’s single “Right Place Now” has earned the band their first Top 40 single, charting at #34 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart.
“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! Sarah Owens’ vocal talent is undeniable!” [UndiscoveredNashville] Make sure to catch a Hudson Valley show the next time you’re in Nashville, this group is creating quite a buzz up and down Music Row
