Acoustic Hotel

by Lumpy

Like Leo Kottke meets Loudon Wainwright and studies with Segovia. Precision acoustic fingerstyle guitar, lyrics that satire and force introspection and a mellowed, professional voice make Lumpy fascinating to listen to, hard to categorize.

Album Notes
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.

I'm coming to your concert, no matter where it is
Heard your segue music on NPR between segments. Didn't know who it was but I dug it. Then totally out of the blue, stumbled upon your website and listened to the mp3 sample. Low and behold there it was, Cumulus 19. Take my money. Get me a copy of that CD right away.

D. Katcher

A thoroughly enjoyable listen. I hit "repeat" often on this CD.
I listen to this CD often because the accustic guitar is excellent and has that nice rich sound that is so enjoyable that you are disappointed when the song ends, but so happy there are more of the same on the CD. I hit repeat often when this CD is in my player.

Jeff Sherman

This is played on just ONE guitar? Wow!
Linus and Lucy is very well played. Skilled. Nice touch. There's a section played in harmonics that's great. A stand-out track for sure.

Real life lyrics, honest guitar. Nice singing! complete with How'dHeDoTHAT? sect
Track 4 - Baby Now That I've Found You - The classic hurt & want you bad poptune given a quieter more personal reading than the original. If this vocal don't get 'er back, he oughtta give up and go find a girl who can dig this great music. Guitar moves like a ballet dancer acting out the parts of the song.
