Hudson Valley is a rockin’ female-fronted country band that lends credence to the suspected, if unproven, fact that there are more hillbillies in upstate New York than in the whole state of Tennessee. Fiery, red-headed lead singer, Sarah Owens, has been carrying a torch for country music north of the Mason Dixon line since she was a little girl listening to the greats of 90’s Country like Martina McBride, Faith Hill, the Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain.
After landing in Nashville in 2018, Owens hit the ground running with a group of musical kindred spirits; Richie Owens on drums, Andrew Kosek on bass, Sean Pauley on guitar, and Matt Farinelli on acoustic guitar and background vocals. They formed ‘Hudson Valley’ and began playing shows around Music City at such Nashville hotspots as The Sutler Saloon, The Listening Room and The Bluebird Cafe. Their debut seven-song EP will be released in spring of 2019 with a single and video leading the charge. The songs Owens’ and the band write draw from their collective country, rock, and pop influences and the group is creating quite a buzz in music circles up and down Music Row.
