Hupp is a Maryland native who grew up on 60's and 70's acoustic and classic rock with a diverse range of influences from James Taylor and David Wilcox to The Beatles and Rush. At the age of 15, he witnessed Paul Reed Smith hand building electric guitars in his original Annapolis workshop.

​Retiring as a Senior Chief Petty Officer following a 20-year career in the Navy, he is actively involved in serving those who have served.  He is a member of the ocean rowing team "Foar From Home" currently on a mission to row across the Atlantic Ocean in the 2021 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.  This is a campaign to bring awareness to the PTSD/Veteran suicide issue that is plaguing our nation's warriors.  See the details at the "Foar From Home" link at the bottom of this page.

With 25-plus years of live performance experience, his shows are highlighted by an unmatched ability to field audience requests spanning five decades of popular music.  He appears nightly in dozens of venues in the Amelia Island (Fernandina Beach), Florida area.  Catch him solo, in the duo "Hupp & Ray" or with the wildly popular classic rock cover band "The Honey Badgers".
