At the beginning of 2018, Hudson Taylor embarked on a sold-out European tour playing to crowds in the UK, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Netherlands. At the end of January, the band announced they would be opening for Gabrielle Aplin throughout her North American Tour. During their trip they made their US TV debut on Good Day New York on Fox and WGN-TV in Chicago. They also completed high-profile online sessions for Paste Magazine, Baeble Music and BalconyTV in LA.

In March 2018 the brothers released the Feel It Again EP and amassed over 1.2 million monthly listeners on Spotify. It was produced by Ryan Hadlock, best known for his work with The Lumineers and Vance Joy, and mixed by Ruadhri Cushnan (Mumford & Sons, Ed Sheeran) in Dublin. Their lead-off single 'Feel It Again' was one of the biggest Irish airplay hits of 2017. With streaming figures well in excess of 10 million listens for the Feel It Again EP and tracks ‘Run With Me’ and ‘Old Soul’ finding favour at radio and digital platforms, Hudson Taylor wrapped an action-packed Irish tour with a sold out, home town show at Olympia Theatre, Dublin, which was recorded for future release.

During summer 2018, the brothers completed a full festival circuit around Europe as well as high-profile supports with Bastille and George Ezra.

Debuted on 21st September 2018, Hudson Taylor revealed their latest offering, a mini-album entitled Bear Creek to Dame Street. The band described their mini-album as a collection of new songs recorded at Bear Creek Studio by Ryan Hadlock along with "some old favourites recorded from our Dublin Olympia Theatre show."

Following the release, Hudson Taylor supported Hozier during his North American tour, opening 19 sold out shows including 3 nights at both Beacon Theatre in New York City and Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles. In between shows with Hozier, Hudson Taylor also played their own sold-out headline shows in New York, Washington DC and Boston at the end of September.

In November 2018, Hudson Taylor will begin their second European tour of the year including a headline show in KOKO in London, finishing with a 6 night sold out home-coming run in Whelan's in Dublin in December.
