Information:

Houston is a Swedish AOR duo influenced by the great bands of the 80's.
Debut album is recorded and will be released on September 3rd 2010
Some of the musicians playing on the Houston album is Tommy Denander (Talk of the town etc), Mats Olausson (Yngwie malmsteen etc),
some choirs by Thomas Vikström (Talk of the town etc) and the album is produced by aor/westcoast guru Ricky Delin!

Houston is Hampus "Hank" Erix and Freddie Allen. They were brought
together by live-promoter Dave Laroxx (who also works as a club organizer,
A&R and DJ in Stockholm) in a joint effort to make a really good Swedish
rock record, adjacent to pop music. So-called AOR, Adult-Oriented Rock,
was the natural starting point. Among representatives of this style
include bands like Foreigner, Survivor, Journey - all with breakthroughs
in the beginning of the 80s. This is where Houston has it's roots; in a
time when yuppies took aerobics classes listening to Journey's Don't Stop
Believin', and when Stallone took on Dolph Lundgren-Russians with the help
of Survivor's Eye of the Tiger. And with the powerful aid of many of
Sweden's newest rock talents, plus a few legendary ones (wait for it!),
this is an album that we know will be something really special...
