Amp Fiddler

| funk/soul songwriter, producer, and recording artist

When he was in high school, his mother got him a job in That Guy Shop at Hudson’s. “It was over for me after that. I was bit by the fashion bug.”

TRADEMARK STYLE: Mixing vintage pieces with modern garments. Unusual shoes, often picked up while traveling internationally on concert tours.

DESIGNER: Junky, out of London.

SHOPPING: Chocolate Shop Vintage, Spectacles, and Incognito.

TIP: “Wear what you love and make sure you feel comfortable in what you love to wear. Don’t worry about what other people might think.”

PERSONAL: Fresh from a European tour, Fiddler is working on a new CD. He’s also developing Camp Amp, a music-education program for children who no longer receive that instruction in public schools.
