The Voice Behind the Tour

HoustonDowntowniPodTourNarrator Dan Workman is the man. He’s the owner of Sugarhill Studios, the oldest recording studio in the country. He’s an artist. A musician. A storyteller. A businessman. A renaissance man.

He’s Houston-born, Houston-bred. He left for Houston a little while when he was younger – he was in college and needed to experiment. But he missed the lemonade and skateboarding the empty streets at midnight. He came back, and has never left again.

And now – lucky you – he’s your tour guide.
