The original, reclusive, avant-garde recording artist Jandek is the star of Live From SugarHill Episode 37. This is a special 90 minute episode, featuring a rare entire complete original Jandek performance filmed with 7 cameras in SugarHill’s historic Studio A. Since 1978, Jandek/Corwood Industries has self-released over 80 albums/DVDs of unusual, often emotionally dissolute songs without ever granting more than the occasional interview or providing any biographical information. Live From SugarHill is a co-production of SugarHill Studios and Zenfilm.
Recently Houston First created a new installment in their award winning advertising campaign to market Houston as a Tourist destination. Their newest commercial stars The Suffers and features the tune “Good Day” off their newly released album as the soundtrack. Great tune, but way longer than :30. Zenfilm director W. Ross Wells looked to SugarHill’s Dan Workman for help in creating the perfect commercial length version. A few weeks of harrowing preproduction, a big two day shoot, a lot of mixing editing and sound designing later… Presto! Out popped “Good Day”, a 30-second mini music video shot in and around Houston’s Historic Market Square District. The spot received acclaim after its debut screening during The Suffers’ appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. We are really proud of how the spot came out and now we would like to share it with you. Don’t forget to find out more about h-town on VisitHouston.com.
We recently opened SugarHill’s doors to the community for a “quality hang”. The Houston Chronicle’s Andrew Dansby wrote this article about the event and our 74 year (and counting) history. Thank you Andrew!
We were happy to host Texas fusion artist, Philippe Edison as he was featured in the KLRU PBS show, Hardly Sound. Edison discusses Love, space travel, modesty and musical philosophy in detail on the first episode of Season 3 of Hardly Sound.
The 26th annual Houston Press Music Awards is once again celebrating the city's local thriving music scene. Over 100 bands have been nominated to receive a Houston Press Music Award, representing the various different genres and talent our city has to offer.
Earlier this year (May 2014) Texas Monthly writer, Michael Hall stopped by the studios to check out what all the fuss was about. Guess he liked what he saw because he wrote us up as one of the landmarks music-loving visitors should check out alongside other cool Houston music establishments.
