Not long ago, I regarded performer Houston Bernard as nothing more than a sexy boy at best, whose stage success depended solely on jock straps, whipped cream and shock value. I could not have been more wrong.
On June 23rd, Bernard released his latest album See the World. Bernard not only wrote and performed the fifteen songs on the CD, but proves himself to be a competent and accomplished producer; a capacity at which even the best songwriters often fail. I recently spoke with Bernard about his infamous stage antics compared with his latest effort. “All my music has it’s place,” he said. “People start to expect certain things from me and then I change it.” Not to worry. See the World packs a generous dose of seductiveness and raw sexual energy to satisfy even the most die-hard fans.
