Check out Katy Perry’s younger 23-year-old brother David Hudson on his track “A Real Man’s Life.” The song is produced by Jesse Astin & Jon Asher. Hudson uploaded the song three months ago and despite having a celebrity sister, his video currently only has 4,398 views. He wrote on his video page, “My first studio recorded song. Let me know what you think.”
Hudson told InTouch Weekly that Katy (born Katheryn Hudson), 27, and their older sister Angela are already huge fans of his music. “I finally showed them a song about two months ago — my first musical endeavor. They were blown away,” Hudson said.
“Katy was really busy, but I finally bugged her enough and she’s like, ‘Fine I’ll listen to it,’ and then she must have sent me ten text messages in a row, ‘Who wrote this?’ ‘Is this really you singing?’ ‘Where did this come from?’ ‘How did you get in the studio?’”
Hudson went on to say, “She was amazed, and she doesn’t know that I know this, but Katy was saying, ‘My first song was not half as good as that!’ It’s just kind of cool to see my sisters’ reactions. I look up to them and I love them.”
Hudson lists Radiohead and Kings of Leon as his top musical influences. Despite having a world famous older sister, Hudson remains humble. “[Katy] definitely encourages me. Obviously, she is who she is and the affiliation is something that does benefit me, but I don’t have her introduce me to producers or studio heads.”
I actually really like this track. It’s super mellow and has a country road trip kind of vibe. I can totally imagine just packing my things in a suitcase, putting some Ray-Bans on, then driving along PCH with my hand out the window. It’s a very chill soft rock song. I think the track gives off the same tone as Blur’s “Coffee and TV” but definitely more mellow. Think, grown up emo kid who just started listening to
Coldplay. Is it just me or does Hudson’s vocals remind you a bit of Chris Martin’s soothing, melodic voice?
Listen below, what do you think of the track?
