An Evening with Chris Trapper at The Living Room
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 John Prine and Kris Kristofferson, Chris's first foray in the music industry was as frontman of the critically-acclaimed alt-rock band The Push Stars (Capitol Records). Over the past 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 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."
Chris's live show is a favorite among fans of alt-acoustic music. His on-stage persona is warm and inclusive and his organic understanding of classic pop melody is infectious. Audience members seem to particularly appreciate the lighthearted moments with the ukulele.
"Since the split of The Push Stars, one of Boston's brightest pop bands of the past two decades, singer-songwriter Chris Trapper has developed into a prolific, captivating artist with a unique musical voice. His 10th solo record accentuates his unerring melodic instincts and thoughtful narrative skill. As the title suggests, the love songs here are postcards from the road, filled with yearning and devotion. The lyrics' wounded soulfulness is grounded by the slightly weathered edge (that his) voice has acquired with age. The best songs (on "Symphonies of Dirt & Dust") are buoyed by his telling eye for details, wit, and subtly defined hooks."
