Thought-Provokers: North Loop

Houston has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from North Loop that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

It wasn’t until college, where I realized that I didn’t want to run track anymore that I started to take modeling seriously. Read more>>

The biggest thing I hope people take away from my songs is the freedom of being radically honest with yourself and others about your thoughts, feelings and life. There’s something so pure and raw about opening yourself to strangers and the people closest to you within a song. Read more>>
