Houston, TX (June 22, 2010)—SugarHill Studios in Houston was burglarized over the weekend. Thieves made off with instruments and recording gear.
Staffers were unaware of the break-in until they arrived at the complex on Monday morning. According to SugarHill president, Dan Workman, all client tapes and files are secure, and the incident has not interrupted any sessions.
“I can hear The Champion Sisters in Studio A cutting basic tracks for their new album,” said Workman. “We are busy securing the property, and taking the steps to ensure that we don't have a repeat of this problem.”
A list of serial numbers and descriptions of the stolen items is below. “If anyone has any information regarding the theft, or comes across any of the items taken, we'd appreciate a prompt call to our front office,” said Workman.
