Meet Pel

Songwriter, guitarist, producer, bassist, arranger, vocalist, recording engineer and bandleader Pelham Houchin has been called a renaissance man and an inspiration to others. Diagnosed  with Parkinson's Disease ten years ago, he keeps doing what he does. "I try to maintain a positive attitude and continue making music for as long as I can. It's in me. It's who I am. It's what I do"
