Live From SugarHill's July episode features solo artist Andrew Karnavas and 60s garage rock legends The Freddie Steady 5.


The hour-long program includes short sets by each guest and candid interviews with Rosa Guerrero (KTRU's Mutant Hardcore show) and award-winning record producer, Dan Workman. Community guest and 'audience of one' for Episode VI is Chris Gray, music editor for The Houston Press, a weekly publication with almost 645,000 readers and more than 2 million online hits each month. Live from SugarHill, Episode VI airs on July 2, 2009 at 7p.m. CST. This episode also brings in a new webhost and audio stream partner, OutboundMusic.


Andrew Karnavas' acoustic melodies are a blend of straightforward chord progressions and slow finger picking that combine elements of blues and folk. The songs are largely introspective, image-driven stories that seek to make listeners examine a man's relationships and his opinions in both pastoral and urban settings. In July 2009, Andrew will release The Bridge, a ten-song Blues Rock and Americana LP from his band Runaway Sun, and this fall, Film Noir, a thirteen-song solo debut with acoustic guitar, cello, piano and violin arrangements.


The Freddie Steady 5 is classified as Tex-Pop; a package of jangly, Beatlesque pop with a Texas touch. Texas Music Hall-of-Famer Freddie Krc (rhymes with search) has played drums behind renowned singer/songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker and Roky Erickson; and been in the studio with Carole King, Pink Floyd's Roger Waters, and the Small Faces' Ronnie Lane. All along, he has also been out front on his own projects and produces Jenny Wolfe and the Pack.
