Biography

Biography I.

Texas rockers Sunset Heights formed in May 1991, taking their name from the Houston area suburb which the band called home. Debuting a year later with Eclipse of the Sun, in 1993 the group was named “Best New Act” in the Houston Press Music Awards; in1994, the Sunset Heights launched their first national release, Texas Tea, returning the following year with Born in Houston—Live. After resurfacing in 1996 with S.N.A.F.U. , the group — now consisting of singers/guitarist Jackie Hibbard and Jorge Castillo, bassist Jason “Big Daddy” Youngblood and drummer Rick Hall — issued 1998’s Medicine Hat; a self-titled LP appeared a year later. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide

Houston-born singer/songwriter/guitarist Vince Converse began his musical career while still a sophomore in high school. He and his band, Sunset Heights, played blues-inflected rock in venues that he was still too young to patronize, appeared on international TV, and toured with acts like Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Johnny Winter, Peter Green, and Fats Domino. After playing with the group for seven years, Converse struck out on his own, moved to South Dakota, and released a solo album, 1999’s Nineteen Fifteen, named after the birth year of Muddy Waters.
