DAVID HOUSTON (Score) David Houston has been in the music business for over 30 years, starting out playing guitar for PUBLIC NUISANCE. He has been called the 'songwriter's songwriter.' And with a gold record, studio stints with the likes of Todd Rundgren and members of the Temptations and production credits that read like a local Who's Who. David Houston has worked steadily to establish himself as one of the area's foremost producers. After PUBLIC NUISANCE'S hope for a label deal eventually faded and Houston returned to Sacramento where he continued to play, occasionally visiting LA to record. Such ventures, however, were costly and Houston hit upon the idea to record at home. Using an eight-track machine, Houston built a makeshift recording studio in his mother's back yard where he recorded not just his music, but helped finance the cost of the equipment by working with other bands. In due time, the enterprise moved out of the yard, evolving into Moon Studios where Houston went on to work with such names as Club Noveau, earning a platinum record for his engineering work on Club Noveau's smash hit 'Lean on Me', and Tony, Toni, Tone. After Moon Studios ran it's course, Houston worked at another local studio before he decided to set up shop again-once again in his mother's back yard. 'I actually had a vision-or a visionquest,' he says now. 'I saw my old recording studio in my mother's back yard and me working there and I just sort of woke up one morning and said 'I'm doing the wrong thing. I need to be doing this. I need to stop working at this other studio and rebuild the old location and work with artists that I want to work with'.' Over the years those artists have come to shape the local pop music community, as we know it today. From Kevin Seconds, Anton Barbeau and Caron Vikre to Natalie Cortez & Ultraviolets, Grub Dog & the Amazing Sweethearts, Her Six Daughters and the Pilgrims, Houston's work is virtually synonymous with the quirky 'Sacpop' sound. David Houston came to the project after Dave Baxley and Kevin Seconds had to back out do to time constraints. Kevin had asked David Houston to write some pieces for the film back when he was still a part of it which he handed over to Joe Gillis around the time Kevin had to back out. Joe loved the material he had written, all of which is still in the film, and asked him if he'd like to take over scoring the rest of the film. David accepted. DAVE BAXLEY (Additional Music) Dave Baxley first worked with Joe Gillis when he wrote the score to 9 ITEMS OR LESS. After David Houston was done scoring VOICES FROM THE HIGH SCHOOL, Joe went to Dave and asked him to score some additional pieces for the film which Dave came back after the weekend with over twenty minutes of music. His pieces are the Title Card, Romeo's Theme, Juliet's Theme, Bo and Patti Various (all but Carbon by David Houston which is over the 'Burns with a Blue Flame' speech), End Theme and End Credit Music. Also, his version of 'Good King' and his very personal 'One Life (Orchestral) Extended' along with 'The World's Eyes' Composed by Dan Marshall and Performed by Dan Marshall, Baxley, Ron Lanford and Marc Pieruccini, all appear in the film. BOBBY JORDAN (Additional Pieces) Bobby Jordan wrote the intro piece, Charlie and Ann piece and Psychologist's office intro piece along with the song 'This is my heart you're playing with' for the film. He also appears as the vocalist on THE KNOCKOFFS 'Never Fall in Love' and as the bassist on all THE KNOCKOFFS songs. Currently he is the bassist for THE MR. T EXPERIENCE, bassist and vocalists for THE KNOCKOFFS, guitarists and singer for RED STAR MEMORIAL along with other projects.
