Houge is a singer/

songwriter, cyclist and baker who is headquartered in St. Paul. For the last 15 years, he has toured the country as a solo performer and with his bands, Welaware and The Honest Folk. He performs in churches, house concerts, clubs, colleges and coffee shops.

After years of baking for his family and neighbors, he partnered with his friend and Welaware guitarist Micah Taylor to launch “Brake Bread.” Together, they bake artisan bread and deliver it by bicycle along the West Seventh corridor of St. Paul.

Brake Bread values things that take time such as good bread, bicycles and building community.
