Lo" and are currently working on the new “Santana” CD. Jimmy and Ray were recently honored with 2 Grammy nominations for their recent production work.

Born and raised in Dublin, Sarah Jane's involvement in music was inevitable from very early on. Sarah Jane began playing piano at the age of 6, going to the Royal Irish Academy of Music for several years. After leaving school, she undertook courses in Recording Engineering and Music Management. As well as her own undeniable passion for music, her first big influence was her father, Jim Hudson, who had been a bass player / singer in the "Kingbees" and the highly successful showband "The Dreams" with Eric Bell. Her mother Denise and her Grandfather had been classically trained musicians. "I grew up in a musically rich environment...my parents were always playing Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, Beatles and Fleetwood Mac, while I was bringing home the newest cuts from Madonna and Prince".

At 19 years of age, Sarah Jane's demos landed on the desk of Peer Music's Creative Manager Andrew Greasley, who flew to Dublin the following week to offer her a publishing contract. Within a couple of weeks, Sarah Jane was in London, collaborating with acclaimed writer / producers such as Ray St. John (Sade's “Smooth Operator”) and Toby Bourke (George Michael). Peer Music then flew her to New York to work with Ric Wake (Celine Dion) and many talented writers such as Arnie Roman, Russ DeSalvo, Steve Skinner and Rich Tancredi. Thriving on the cultural diversity and musical opportunities New York had to offer, Sarah Jane relocated to the States. The next couple of years were filled with collaborations, gigs from New York City to the Baltic Song Festival in Sweden and songcuts for British TV show ‘Minty’, Dutch pop group ‘Boyband’ and a compilation of acclaimed Irish artists on Sony Germany.

Eventually parting ways with Peer Music, Sarah Jane continued recording and performing in New York City, where she met producers Jimmy Greco and Ray Contreras (Jennifer Lopez) after they heard her sing in the Dark Star Lounge on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Sarah Jane’s debut album followed with Jimmy and Ray producing songs Stateside and Irish producer Billy Farrell (The Corrs) taking the helm in Ireland. “Sarah Jane Hudson” the album, was released in March 2002 on her own independent label Little Emerald Star, to much acclaim from the Irish press. However, despite this impressive debut, Sarah Jane felt that she had not yet fulfilled her own musical vision and returned to Ireland in the spring of 2003 to begin recording new songs. This time, Sarah Jane would be producing them herself with the help of Billy Farrell, adopting an organic approach with nothing but live instrumentation, thus achieving the interpretation of her own work as she had always intended.

Sarah Jane is currently recording her second album.
