Houston has shared bills with country superstars like Luke Bryan, Old Dominion, Granger Smith, Montgomery Gentry, Marshall Tucker Band, and Clint Black.
Houston Bernard, a seasoned independent country music artist with deep roots in the genre, draws inspiration from a family legacy rich in songwriting and touring. Born in Oklahoma and raised in Alaska, his musical journey began with family members who were part of country bands, touring with greats like Tanya Tucker. His family tree includes an infamous outlaw, George "Bitter Creek" Newcomb, inspiring The Eagles' song "Bitter Creek."
Houston's own musical path started in Alaska, where he discovered his passion for performing at a young age. Despite a disrupted family life, he inherited a natural curiosity for music. As a U.S. Army veteran, he served for nine years and aspires to play a USO Tour to give back to fellow service members.
Houston has released a series of singles, EPs and albums. In 2013 he released his debut self-titled EP, and then followed up with his first full length album Knockin’ Boots in 2015. In 2018 he released his second EP Lucky Man, followed by Freedom, in 2020, which continued to raise Houston’s profile as a diverse country music singer and songwriter.
More recently, songs like “All We Are Is Memories,” “People We Are,” and “American Dream” have garnered him hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify and YouTube, along with being featured on Country Rebel, CMT.com, The Heartland Network, and The Country Network.
On his forthcoming new single “Hangover,” produced by Nashville hitmaker Bill McDermott, it's immediately evident that they've recorded another country rocker fit for most honky tonks on a Friday or Saturday night. Singing on a familiar country music subject, drinking, Houston and McDermott mix a 90s-esque style of sound with a bit of a southern rock flair and nothing but good times to boot.
“There are a sea of emotions and stories buried in the songs I write and record, Houston said. “I wrote or recorded them because they moved me in some way, and they are honest human emotions that I experienced, which I think my fans also relate. I just want to connect with them and maybe help create some positivity in their lives, because you only live once!”
