A monthly video podcast featuring emerging artists from a very eclectic range of genres.The show is recorded live and filmed in 68 year old Studio A of historic SugarHill Studios in Houston, Texas.
Live from SugarHill, Episode 2 features Austin's The Blue Hit and Houston's own Buxton.
The Blue Hit, a progressive folk trio, features Grace Rowland's angelic voice with David Moss on cello and John McGee on guitar. The precocious lyrics and the delicate instrumental arrangements are mesmerizing, and quite unlike any sound out there. Psychedelic, rock, folk fusion? We're just not sure... but it is fantastic.
Buxton is a folk act based in the LaPorte/Houston area. They've played with such notable acts as Okkervil River, Akron/Family, Man Man, Great Lake Swimmers, Maria Taylor, Copeland, Colour Revolt, Anathallo, Look Mexico, Gatsbys American Dream, Statistics and Denison Witmer. Buxton also has a folk influence but that is blended with flavors of Wilco and hard rock as well. Buxton turns in a rock solid live performance filled with energy and not just a little virtuosity.
Episode 3 featuring Jennifer Grassman and MacAdams airs in early March.
The show is hosted by Rosa Guerrero and Dan Workman. It is Produced by Gina Miller.
Studio A engineering by John Griffin and Chris Longwood.
