Sugarman Three

Finally a chance to catch my breath and get back to talking about our spectaculous music artists.

I first heard the vintage funk sounds of Sugarman Three during a party at the home of Kevin Shahan. I remember thinking man, they don't make music like this anymore. I asked Kevin who it was, and he mentioned that it was a NEW recording. I was floored. I've always thought funk/jazz and comics have a very cool collectable kinship. This stuff would be perfect in our movie... could we possibly get these hip New York cats to take part in our indie Cleveland film? I tracked down Neal Sugarman on myspace, told him about HT, and he was cool with it.

On a side note one of the Sugarman Three members is Adam Scone. His father and the father of Perren Hedderson are very close friends. In fact Bruce Hedderson was best man in the wedding of the father of Adam Scone. Crazy coincidence.

I'm so thrilled to have four tracks from Sugarman Three in Hero Tomorrow. Buy their music. Buy their music.

"that little indie label that could, would and certainly should--continues to bring you the tastiest, most delectable nuggets of Soul, Funk, Gospel and Afrobeat to be found on a vinyl platter. Armed with recipes culled from a former life as Desco Records, we at Daptone earnestly strive to serve only the finest music analog tape can offer.

Musician-owned and run, our Brooklyn-based family of soul-drenched talent channels the spirits of bygone powerhouses like Stax and Motown into gilded moments of movement and joy, be they delivered by the likes of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Lee Fields, Charles Bradley, Binky Griptite, the Budos Band, Naomi Davis or the Sugarman 3. Whether your preference is for discs 7-inches or 12, LPs or CDs, this is music to be savored and felt, again and again."
