Biography of ART PAUL SCHLOSSER
Art Paul Schlosser (born January 4,1960 in Chicago) as Arthur P. Schlosser is an artist, cartoonist, comedian, journalist, musician, poet, singer, songwriter in Madison, Wisconsin. He plays humorous novelty, gospel, & political songs and draws cartoons currently for Madison Street Pulse Newspaper where he also summits poems and interviews people. Art Paul also has painted many different paintings and has participated in various art projects.
His mother Leona E. Wagner met his father Arthur J. Schlosser at some of the cool bars her and her friends were hanging out at.
Schlosser was named Arthur after his father and grandfather but his grandfather might have originally been named Otto but because of his German accent when he said his name they thought he said Arthur.
Art Paul Schlosser grew up listening to novelty music like Allen Sherman and Tiny Tim as well as funny songs by The Beatles and The Monkees. When Art was 11, he, his mother, and his sisters moved to Madison, Wisconsin after his parents got a divorce. As a child in Madison, his mother continued to play weird and funny songs for him, sometimes playing strange sound effects on one recorded player to go with the songs. As a teenager, Art Paul joined a work experience play group that encouraged Art to be creative. In this group, there were a couple of fans of The Beatles, one of whom encouraged Art Paul to write lyrics. It was from that time on that Art started to write. Art would listen to the Dr Demento radio show as well as other strange records that he discovered at the local library, and then try to write some lyrics he was inspired to write after listening to the songs. Also as a child he was encouraged to draw cartoons by his sister Mary.
Upon discovering that it is legal to busk on State Street, Art Paul tried it out on a warm day late in February 1986 and received a couple of dollars for his effort. Since then Art Paul has been a street musician and busker as well as an outsider artist on State Street in Madison, Wisconsin.
He usually performs his original songs or parodys on an acoustic guitar and kazoo. He also sometimes plays electronic keyboard or ukulele.
He is best known for his funny music, especially " Have A Peanut Butter Sandwich" , which made the Funny Five of the Dr Demento radio show four times in 2001 and Vote for Me/It's a Joke which was on the Funny Five of the Dr Demento radio in 2003. While he sings mostly humorous songs, Art Paul has also written on the topics of politics and religion.
In 2007 Art Paul Schlosser received a Madison Area Music Award for best compilation for his CD Art Paul Schlosser. In 2009 he won two more Madison Area Music Awards for Unique Song (" Have A Peanut Butter Sandwich, " the remix version, which was remixed by Animalien) and for Unique Album (Leftovers) .
