Popa Chubby

1960 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

Genre: Blues

Born and raised in New York's Bronx, Ted Horowitz, a.k.a Popa Chubby, grew up to the sounds of 1960s soul, jazz and R&B. After playing in several bands throughout his late teens, Horowitz joined punk legend Richard Hell for a world tour of the new Voidoids. In 1991, the guitarist won a national blues talent contest from KLON radio, helping him score a major label deal with Sony for the release of his first album, Booty and the Beast (1995), produced by Tom Dowd (Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles). The album enjoyed considerable success, thanks to its hit song Sweet Goddess of Love and Beer. Popa Chubby subsequently released several albums on various independent labels, namely How'd a White Boy Get the Blues (2001), The Good, the Bad and the Chubby (2002), The Fight Is On (2010), and more recently, I'm Feelin' Lucky (The Blues According to Popa Chubby) (2014).
