Artist Discovery – Hudson Henry

Exclusive Interviewravermag_henryhudson_1

  By Michael Beas RaverMag: Your Tropical House vibes are moving and intense, with uplifting melodies. Where does the inspiration come from and who in the world of dance music inspires you as an artist? Hudson Henry: I started to dabble in electronic music when I was about 18.  I remember starting with the program “Reason,” then moved to the DAW “Logic.” I think Aphex Twin really got me hyper-focused into the percussive and glitchy side of electronic music. I would sit down for hours and hours trying to replicate sounds until I got a sample I desired. Some of my personal favorite artists who inspire me are Zedd, Knife Party, Aphex Twin, Skrillex, and Kygo. The Tropical House influence really comes from the fast growing scene on the west coast for Tropical House music.   ravermag_henryhudson_2   RaverMag: Your latest drop “Trust Me” is catching fire on the dance music circuit. From experience, I know that every track has a story behind it. What’s the story behind “Trust Me”? Hudson Henry: I wanted to create a certain vibe with “Trust Me.” I wanted to animate the emotion of hopefulness within the skeletal structure of the song’s lyrics. The song was written from the point of view of a man talking to his lover, convincing her that he is actually a good soul in a world full of sometimes dishonest people. The lyric “Let’s tear down your paper walls,” directly refers to the guard the girl has put up due to past terrors from other people’s wrong doing. I really hope it reaches the listener who is timid to give love a second chance, but will.   RaverMag: In one of your Twitter posts you wrote, “I love you guys. I’m going to give these new tracks all I’ve got. To tell the real story of me, some of which you guys don’t know me.” This is heartfelt, and also a bit mysterious. What would you like to share with both new and current fans that we don’t know? What would you like to express to those who hear your music? Hudson Henry: As you may know, my fans are everything to me. They drive me to do what I do, they are lifeline to the fiery music machine. When I release a song, I almost feel as though we all connect on the same level through the music that’s released. I’ve had countless messages, letters, and drawings from fans consistently. The fact that they believe in me so much drives me to write songs with them in mind and not just my own musical needs. I genuinely care about them, and the rest of mankind. If I can have a group of songs change even a few lives, then that to me is success. I remember after I released “Flaws” I got endless messages about how the song helped them through a rough time or even a deep depression. This moment honestly meant the most to me in my musical career. https://soundcloud.com/hudson-henry Catch more from Hudson Henry in the October Edition of Raver Mag… DROP ME A LIKE ON FACEBOOK www.facebook.com/hudsonhenrymusic BOOKING CONTACT [email protected] Twitter https://twitter.com/HudsonHenry1 Visit Us At: www.ravermag.com ]]]]> ]]>
