Percy Abell

Singer-songwriter Percy Abell's love of music and the beach have merged into a tropical Americana sound that is fun and filled with many personal connections with his love of the beach, sun, and sand. To date, he has written nearly 15 original songs that he is currently in the studio working to record. In November 2018, Percy's debut single was released and immediately entered the tropical Americana scene hitting the charts on the Radio A1A(to date has gone as high as #7) and tikipod radio(#1).

Percy has played the guitar for nearly 30 years and has always had a love of singing. His music has been heavily influenced by the music of Jimmy Buffet, Kenny Chesney, and Garth Brooks. He covers music from the 70's, 80's as well as current music from the Tropical Americana world.

Percy kicked off the summer of 2018 with a standing Saturday afternoon gig at the Portside Grill and Bar at Smith Mountain Lake. Portside is a fun, laid back venue that sits directly on the water. The regulars enjoy his covers as well as learning to enjoy his originals and even requesting to hear songs: The Tiki Hut, Buy a Boat and Sail Away, and If I Were a Boat.


Percy Abell is a native of Virginia, living in the Lynchburg Area for 35 years. He is former career college head baseball coach, who has most recently retired from coaching and is a full-time college professor.
