Chip Mergott, a former resident of Watchung and member of Central Jersey’s “Bittersweet”, was discovered by Bonnie Raitt, and subsequently signed to a major label early in his career. He is currently promoting his 18th release for Notebook Records, one of the country's longest running independent labels, which he founded.
His “Mergott Music Minute” is currently heard on WDVR, WPRB (“Music You Can’t Hear on the Radio”) among other stations, and is a weekly feature in The Bucks County Herald.
He’s been teaching music privately in Hunterdon County, N.J. and Bucks County, P.A. for over 20 years, and has recently authored his first book “How to Play the Guitar in One Hour.”
