Chris Trapper at The Listening Room
Thursday,May 9 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$15
CHRIS TRAPPER is a storyteller.
With his soulful, honeyed tenor, sly humor and an uncanny knack for melody, Chris has traveled the world over, performing to a dedicated and ever-growing fan base with nothing but his guitar and his songs.
Raised on Prine and Kristofferson, Trapper’s first foray in the music industry was as the frontman of the critically acclaimed alt-rock band THE PUSH STARS (Capitol Records). On September 21st, 2018, The Push Stars released “3 Feet In The Air”, their first album of new material in 14 years. Recorded at the legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN, the record features 12 songs penned by Trapper, who also serves as the band’s lead singer and guitarist. As a solo artist for more than a decade, Chris has become a modern day acoustic troubadour, performing over 150 dates a year as a headliner and sharing the stage with the likes of Colin Hay, Martin Sexton and even John Prine himself.
As a singer/songwriter, Chris is most known for his original song THIS TIME, the #1 selling song on the Grammy nominated soundtrack for AUGUST RUSH (Robin Williams, Jonathan Rhys Meyers /Warner Bros Pictures). His music can best be described as lyrically driven roots-pop with a knack for telling everyday stories.
The New York Times has called his work “classic pop perfection.”
