Huey P. Meaux (March 10, 1929, Louisiana – April 23, 2011) was an American record producer and recording studio owner (most notably SugarHill Recording Studios in Houston, Texas).

Nicknamed "The Crazy Cajun," his credits included such hits as "She's About a Mover" by the Sir Douglas Quintet, "Before the Next Teardrop Falls" and "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights" by Freddy Fender, "You'll Lose A Good Thing" by Barbara Lynn, "Talk To Me" by Sunny & The Sunliners and "Big Blue Diamonds" by Gene Summers.

In 1996, a police raid of his office turned up turned up thousands of Polaroids and videos of girls, mostly underage, in sexual situations. Meaux plead guilty to two counts of sexual assault of a child, a drug possession charge, a child pornography charge and another for jumping bail (he had briefly fled to Juarez, Mexico). He was sentenced to 15 years in prison and was released in 2007.

In 2010 under Freedom Express Label he released artist Ramón Ángel Solís in a bilingual CD - "The Mexican Side of Me." Meaux died April 23, 2011. He was 82.
