“A brilliantly gifted songwriter.” -The Huffington Post
Trapper’s live show is a favorite among fans of alt-acoustic music. His onstage persona is warm and inclusive, his organic understanding of classic pop melody, infectious. Audience members seem to particularly appreciate the lighthearted moments with the ukulele.
At heart, though, Trapper is a storyteller. With his soulful, honeyed tenor, sly humor and an uncanny knack for melody, he 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 frontman of the critically acclaimed alt-rock band The Push Stars. 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 John Prine himself.
