Ferentz and the Felon’s ‘Hudson County’ Is an Ode to NYC’s Western Neighbor


‘Hudson County’, the new Ferentz and the Felons song, is a folky, rock-tinged ode to to the ultra-dense New Jersey county across the Hudson River from New York City. Singer and lead guitarist Zak Ferentz’s rough childhood, drug addicted parents, and running the streets, in the county’s housing projects is the song’s primary lyrical focus. It’s nice to see urban working class themes worked into a genre that’s often explicitly rural. Ferentz’s patient, layered approach to songwriting comes through really well on ‘Hudson County.’ The guitars are properly produced and well-performed and the rhythm section is right in the pocket. These guys clearly have a lot to offer.

Here’s the music video from YouTube:
