Chris Trapper returns to the 9th Ward!

Always a Babeville favorite, Chris Trapper began his career as the front man for late–90’s alternative rock band THE PUSH STARS (Capitol Records). With four CD releases and several high profile national tours – including a run with Matchbox Twenty – The Push Stars served to establish Chris as an authentic talent.

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.”

The new CD SYMPHONIES OF DIRT & DUST is a collection of 12 songs written and performed by Chris Trapper and Produced by Jason Meeker at Silver Top Studios, Boston, MA. Guest musicians include Dan McLoughlin of The Push Stars on bass and NYC singer/songwriter Amy Fairchild on harmonies.

Every record tells a story. For me, much more than gimmicks, my albums are like diary entries, or truthful accounts of where I’m at in life. I suppose that might be the same for most songwriters, but in the spectrum of the music business, it’s still an animal that’s nearly extinct.” Chris Trapper

Chris Trapper’s ability to craft songs that are both elegant and accessible is evident on each solo CD in his deep discography. His organic understanding of classic pop melody is infectious. There is a smart, honest quality to the lyrics that never panders.

Trapper’s live show is a favorite among fans of alt–acoustic music. His on–stage 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. They depart the venue at the end of the evening with the sense of having been truly entertained.

Lindsay Dodd

Lindsay’s music is a blend of dreamy folk/pop with infectious melodies and heartfelt lyrics. Her songs echo inspiration from Joni Mitchell, Janis Ian, and Emmylou Harris while establishing a unique sound all her own.
