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 Outside 610 that we hope you will check out, follow and support.
Jessica and Billy Knopp
As we’ve grown, our line has expanded in a few different directions! We are still rooted in lifestyle accessories but have added to our line of jewelry and leather accessories with home decor, barware, and a line of collars and leashes for pets. Each and every Son of a Sailor product feels a human touch before it hits our shelves. Read more>>
I’ve always loved rock n’ roll, and I think that sound is probably my roots, but I’ve grown to love all sorts of different genres of music. I’ll listen to rap, hip-hop, r&b, pop; the list goes on. I progressed the most musically in high school and started a band with my friends called The Response. Read more>>

I love to create music that moves people in some way. My main focus is in hip-hop, and everything I’ve released up to this point is definitely more rap heavy, but lately, I’ve been experimenting with a little R&B too. Read more>>
Ten years ago I decided I wasn’t happy with the kits I could find, so started slowly learning how to design my own embroidery and learn more about different techniques. I enjoy goldwork and blackwork the most and have spent most of the past decade learning how to take the techniques and make them my own. Read more>>
Art has always weaved itself through my life. My earliest memories of making art are sitting at my grandmother’s kitchen table on weekend mornings drawing while she sipped her coffee and read the newspaper. It was in high school that I decided I wanted to do something creative for a living. Read more>>
I wanted to create gifts that people will have forever. After the flowers wilt or the items are removed from the gift basket, recipients are left with just a container. So I thought of personalizing the containers so they can have it as a keepsake or simply home decor. Read more>>
Shannon “Shann OH”
I define success as one feeling accomplished in achieving the goals that they set for themselves. Hard work and sacrifice are necessities to travel any journey and reach the destination. I believe it is essential to be committed to growth and constantly strive to be whatever makes you great. Read more>>
Remembering to incorporate old school ways of growth can be a challenge. It’s easy to post a few pictures and get a few likes on social media, but are you showing up at local businesses, doing local markets, and putting your feet to the pavement to grow? It’s hard f*cking work to get recognition, but consistently hustling is key, even when it’s not always fun. Read more>>
