If you listened to radio or watched TV in the 70's, you've heard Lumpy. Formerly a busy commercial studio musician, now he's gone solo. The guy who was heard on thousands of radio and TV commercials as the Tidy-Bowl man and the Ken-L-Ration St Bernard and so many others, is now a solo acoustic artist.
Influenced by everyone from Loudon Wainwright to Leo Kottke to Dick Dale, there's no way to pin a genre category on Lumpy. He'll have you rolling on the floor one minute with hilarious lyrics, and scratching your musical head the next minute wondering "how'd he do that on an acoustic guitar?".
Lumpy performs all over the US at house concerts and other small acoustic venues and teaches a handful of advanced guitar and voice students in Phoenix.
"The Acoustic Hotel CD was a LOT of work!" says Lumpy. It's eight instrumental and seven vocal tunes. All played and sung by Lumpy, in the same manner in which you would hear him live if he were in your living room. From razor sharp precision fingerstyle guitar to razor sharp vocal sarcasm and comedy. Acoustic Hotel is a great musical ride.
