Camp Sugar's sound is a collection of well-crafted poppy dream funk that reflects heart & soul from the lead singer's past and his rumination of the future. Noah Sugarman, founding member and songwriter, released his debut album, "Art Of Starting A Fire", on the Unison Music label in 2009. The talented, multi-instrumentalist, has toured the country coast-to-coast, with an array of bands. In 2007, Sugarman signed with Unison Music of Los Angeles.
In addition to Camp Sugar and his solo efforts, Sugarman has made significant contributions to alt-country/alt rock band, 500 Miles to Memphis, touring 250+ days a year from 2008 thru 2010, and playing bass and guitar on their last two albums, "Sunshine In A Shot Glass" and "We've Built Up to Nothing".
Sugarman released a second album, "After the Blackout", in 2014, accompanied by a heavy touring schedule that took the band throughout North America and garnered rave reivews in Europe.
This year, a new EP promises more of the great sound that Camp Sugar so masterfully creates. Take a sneak peek at the new single, 'Heart', that will release the Summer of 2016.

Hank's story is as incredible as his storytelling ability. After five years as a merchant marine he logged over 1,000 days at sea, traveled over 200,000 nautical miles, was US Coast Guard certified as an Able Bodied Seaman, and delivered roughly 10 million tons of cargo. He made more money than he'd ever seen, blew more money than he'd ever seen, and lost all control of his life off the boat which included any hopes of a music career. He stepped off of the SS Wilfred Sykes on January 10, 2014, and he never went back. He had no way of knowing that day that he would spend most of the following year on tour, or that he'd spend the year after that fighting cancer...and touring, or that he'd become the first member of his family to survive cancer. Life is funny. Hank was born in Newport, Kentucky and spent a lot of time on the road with his dad, who drove an 18 wheeler. He bought Hank his first guitar and died of cancer before he ever heard him sing. Hank is on the mend, and he won't stop pursuing his music, but he has a helluva lot of amazing stories and life lessons to share when he plays his guitar and sings. His gentle, but strong soul echoes in his melodies.
