The Hudson Branch

For the past six years four brothers from Chicago have been busy using their love of pop music to build a mini-empire under the name The Hudson Branch. They’ve collaborated with NPR’s popular and innovative podcast Radiolab, shared the stage with English new wave pioneers New Order, and performed experimental live shows alongside media giants Google and Disney. They’ve also recorded and produced three ambitious albums, leading The Chicago Sun-Times to declare them “a polished quintet, building on roots in sensitive folk-rock (think: Nick Drake), Genteel early ‘60s pop (echoes of Burt Bacharach) and polite indie-rock (a la the Sea and Cake.)”
