Love Street - The Alliance for Children and Music is a Houston charity dedicated to improving children's lives through the healing and enriching power of music. Love Street brings Houston's musicians to where they are most needed - area children's hospitals and other facilities without the resources to meet their needs for live music.
Special Thanks to

Back in the Studio
Dan Workman, Alicia Gianni, and Mike Whitebread get fired up in Studio B.
Alicia is working on new material for her debut CD and Dan and Mike have been tapped to be co-producers once again. Dan reports: "This song continues our explorations of minimalistic arrangements. Nowhere to hide! Good thing we have Alicia's amazing voice and lyrics to lean on. Now where's that SK-1....?"
For the Love of Music
Kingwood High School's non profit organization, Just About Kids
hosted their second annual singing competition this month. Over 120 singers from all over Humble I.S.D.
auditioned for a chance to compete for talent contracts, college scholarships, and a chance to record a demo song here at SugarHill. The competition, "For the Love of Music" is named in honor of Kingwood High School's Favorite substitute teacher, Mr. Love who recently turned 92 years old.
SugarHill was the location for for NBC's The Voice call-back casting auditions!
We had all hands on deck around the clock to make sure everyone got a chance to shine.
In 2 days over 200 artists came through our doors to show judges that they had what it takes to be on the 5th season of the popular primetime TV show. In past seasons, some of the audition tapes filmed here made it to the episodes. Tune in to see if you can spot us as the backdrop!
