BORN AND RAISED in Baton Rouge, LA, Chad Thevenot (a.k.a. Sugar Jones) serves up southern-fried indie rock -- a spicy mix of rock, pop and funk. Thevenot's second CD, "Bring Your Own Insanity," features the funky riffs of George Porter Jr., legendary bassist of The Meters.

The unique story behind the production of "Insanity" earned Thevenot a feature article in the September 2001 issue of OnStage, a national music magazine. The Washington Post lists the CD as "[one] of the most satisfying releases by area artists in 2001." Since 2001, he has sold more than 1,000 CDs regionally as an indie artist.

Thevenot is inspired by rock/pop masters, such as Beck and Jeff Buckley, and funk/soul legends, such as Edgar Winter and Sly & the Family Stone. In addition to recording, building a large fan base through regular live performances, and studying classical Indian Carnatic music, for the past 8 years Thevenot has been a prominent advocate for civil liberties.
