An Interview with Hudson Moore


Hudson: "The film is quite dark and isolated so we really tried to make those elements come through in the song".

Hudson Moore
Interview conducted by John Townsend
15 October 2013

Hudson Moore is a rising music star who has co-written a song for dark western Sweetwater. While promoting his 2nd album he took time to answer some questions.

First off, how did you become involved in writing a song for Sweetwater?
My brother, Tucker Moore, is actually one of the producers. He called and asked me if Iíd like to write the theme song for the film - I said, ďabsolutelyĒ.

Did you know where your song would feature in the film and have you always been interested in contributing to a soundtrack?
Yes, Tucker mentioned that my song would be played at the end of the movie as the credits rolled. Very much so. Iíve always wanted to write music for film. I grew up making short films as a kid and I was always so fascinated with the way that music can enhance a film and bring the story to life.

The film has a dark theme to it and is set in very isolated location. Was this something you wanted to convey in the song?
Yes. It was very important to Wally and I, in writing this song, that we align the music, melody and lyrics with the vibe of the movie. Like you mentioned, the film is quite dark and isolated so we really tried to make those elements come through in the song.


Hudson: "I grew up making short films as a kid and I was always so fascinated with the way that music can enhance a film and bring the story to life".

The song appears to be a slight departure for you, would that be fair? Slightly ďmoodierĒ than previous work perhaps.
Absolutely. This song is totally different from anything Iíve ever written before, and thatís what I enjoyed most about this process. It allowed me to go somewhere new, creatively. It was a real treat.

I read that you studied film as well as music. Do you have ambitions in cinema, acting or otherwise, or are you happy to focus on your music.
I did. I was a radio, film and TV major at the University of Texas before I put school on hold to pursue my music full time. Iíve always had a passion for film along with music and Iíd definitely like to explore acting at some point - take on small roles and working my way into it. Having said that, Iím very happy with what Iím doing now, making music, writing songs and touring so Iím going to ďkeep my day jobĒ as they say.

Who would you say your influences have been?
My influences are all over the map. I listen to everything from James Brown to George Strait. But mostly, my music is rooted in blues, soul and rock and roll. I love guys like the Allman Brothers, BB King, The Rolling Stones, Beatles, the Eagles, The Doors, Eric Clapton, then of course modern singer/songwriters/guitar players like John Mayer, Keith Urban, Gary Clark Jr, Ryan Bingham and Vince Gill. But at the end of the day, Iím just influenced by good music. Iíll listen to anything with a good groove, melody and lyric.


Hudson: "My influences are all over the map".

How would you describe your style of music as to me, having listened to your first album it seems that it would be difficult to categorise you in any particular box.
I really had no direction in making my first album - I just made the music I wanted to make, and thatís the beauty of making a first album. Now, Iím much more focused on who I am as an artist and where I want to go with my music. But, to answer your question, I like to categorize my music as ďHudson MooreĒ.

How has your music changed from the first album?
Stylistically, you could say my second album is a bit more ďcountryĒ, as Iíve incorporated a little banjo and steel guitar in my sound, but overall, my music is still rooted in blues and rock.

The music industry, like the film industry, is plagued by illegal downloading and piracy. Some artists are embracing this by giving away their music free occasionally to fans. What are your thoughts on this and do you feel itís an inevitable consequence of the digital age? Itís easier to communicate with fans but harder to protect your music.
Thereís really nothing you can do about the fact that music is extremely accessible nowadays and fans are inevitably going to get their hands on your music whether they pay for it or not. I view my music as an invitation to a live show. Thatís all it really is. That is where the music business is going. Itís all about the live show. Yes, people still love listening to albums, and itís important that you make great recordings and have a presence on radio, but if you canít back it up with a great live show, itís going to be extremely difficult to sustain a career.

Will we see you in the UK at all?
Yes! Itís still in development, but my team and I are planning a future European tour, so keep your eyes and ears open!


"Thank you ever so much for taking part in this interview Hudson.
And we wish you the very best of luck in the future."
