Biography

With 19 albums, more than 25 million song and video downloads, and a countless international fan base known as “The Tribe”, Muck Sticky’s feel-good-funky-fresh style of music is changing the mood of the world with his fundamental “be yourself” message.

Since the beginning, Muck has produced and released hundreds of songs, dozens of music videos (with a 94% overall thumbs up rating on YouTube.com/MuckStickyTV), gained a social media following 200k strong, and thousands of new fans flock to his pages each week. He has also appeared on stage/screen with Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Snoop Dogg, Taylor Swift, Juicy J, and many more.

Well-recognized for his colorful sense of style as a recording artist, director of his own music videos, and fashion oddity due to his pants always being pajamas cut off at the calf, Muck is a mid-south legend that has independently gained worldwide notoriety with his unique blend of comedy and music. He currently holds the world record for ‘most consecutive days wearing pajamas’ at over 5,000 days (not the same pair of course).

In 2009 he starred in MTV’s Emmy winning series ‘$5 Cover’, and has appeared on The Tonight Show w/Jay Leno, The View, Star Magazine, TMZ, LIFE, E! Fashion Police, The T.V. Guide Channel, The Hollywood Reporter, The LA Times, and many more.

Born and raised in Memphis, TN, Muck Sticky comes from a long line of musicians. His great-grandparents founded one of the first gospel bluegrass quartets in 1929 known as The Wayfaring Singers, and both of his grandfathers were well known musicians. One was Gene Lowery of The Dixie Four who often recorded at Sun Studios in Memphis, and sang with artists like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Charlie Rich.

Muck is a member of MENSA. When he was twelve, he attended a local junior college where he developed a great interest in public speaking. He was inspired by a hilarious professor, who spent most of the class period telling funny stories about being a failed rock musician in his early years. It inspired Muck to go for his dreams and make music, instead of ending up like his professor.

In the year 2000, with money he earned from his manual labor jobs, he bought an 8-track recorder and began creating what would eventually become his first album. In January of 2001 he gave his first live performance at a battle of the bands concert in Memphis, TN. Since Muck recorded all of his songs alone, he decided to attach wigs, sunglasses, and fake instruments to six foot tall floor lamps and call them his “band”. To this day he believes they were vital in winning 2nd place that night.

Muck Sticky has directed music videos for numerous other well-known artists, starred in more than a dozen independent films, and has also written and produced several of his own short films including ‘Muscadine Wine‘. He is currently working on his second feature-length movie ‘Zeebo Newton’, and surprise-released his 19th album ‘Welcome Surprise‘ on 11-18-16.
