Arlington Houston

Bassist, Composer, Arranger, Bandleader

As a toddler, Arlington Houston Jr. was encouraged by his father to practice and experiment with different musical instruments including the drums, guitar, bass, and organ. Although not musically inclined themselves, Arlington’s mother and father shared a great passion for Soul and R&B. It was in his childhood home in Richmond, CA where Arlington grew up listening to James Brown, Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight and the Pips, The O’Jays, Roberta Flack, Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, Dionne Warwick, Al Green, The Temptations and Isaac Hayes to name a few.
