Houston “Gulf Coast Soul” band The Suffers is one of the city’s best and biggest – the group boasts 10 members. Guitars, horns, keys and percussion form the foundation for singer Kam Franklin’s powerhouse voice, a throwback to the great soul divas of the ’60s and ’70s. The Suffers stopped by Houston Public Media’s Geary Studio to record the original songs “Make Some Room” and “Giver.”

Listen to The Suffers on News 88.7FM’s “Houston Matters.”
