In 1974, the Hudson Brothers became Sonny and Cher's summer replacement on television, which eventually evolved into the Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle Show, a variety show that mixed music and comedy.

The Brothers enjoyed much success with seven albums and concert tours worldwide. Mark Hudson then went on to learn music production from the legendary Phil Ramone, and began producing and writing songs for a variety of top artists.

Mark went on to produce eight albums with Ringo including Ringorama, Vertical Man, and Choose Love, to name a few. In 1993, Mark wrote the Grammy winning song, "Livin' on the Edge" for Aerosmith, which went to number one worldwide.
In 2005, Mark was a cast member on the Simon Cowell smash hit, "The X Factor" along with Sharon Osbourne. During his three years there, he wrote and produced, "It's Chico Time", which went to number one in England and also produced Ozzy Osbourne's first number one single titled, "Changes" with Ozzy and Kelly Osbourne.
In 2011, Mark produced Pete Seeger, Jeff Beck, Seal and Billy Bragg tracks for the critically acclaimed Bob Dylan Tribute Album for Amnesty International.
In 2012 Mark released his solo album, The Artist, which is a psychedelic autobiography, with guest stars such as Ringo Starr, Steven Tyler, Harry Nilsson and Joe Perry. His solo album The Hooligan followed in 2014.
