HOUSTON - They played at Discovery Green during the Super Bowl. They performed with the Houston Symphony at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. And they have entertained crowds at several local hot spots. The Suffers are a big deal in Houston. But they are also getting attention outside the Bayou City.
The band's lead singer, Kam Franklin, is featured in a national clothing company's newest social media ad campaign. Modcloth, an Austin-based company, chose Franklin as one of its #styleforall brand ambassadors. A picture of Franklin and an IG video are posted on Modcloth's Instagram account.
Franklin also posted about it on her Instagram account: "Last month, I spent the morning of my 30th birthday in Austin, playing dress up and talking with the incredible folks at @modcloth. I am one of their #styleforall ambassadors for the month of July, and I'm super excited to share some of these looks with y'all."
The Suffers calls itself a gulf coast soul band. They have a busy few months ahead, performing in California, New Jersey, New York, Colorado, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina and Missouri. Their current tour will also take them out of the country to Canada, the United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Germany and France.
The next Houston performance for The Suffers is scheduled at the Karbach Charity Pub Crawl on Oct. 7.
