Chris Trapper, with special guest Bea
- This event has passed.
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, Trapper’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 John Prine himself.
Trapper’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.
A prolific songwriter, Chris has garnered several high profile film placements including There’s Something About Mary (Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz), The Devil Wears Prada (Meryl Streep), Say It Isn’t So (Heather Graham) Gun Shy (Sandra Bullock, Liam Neeson) and Some Kind of Beautiful (Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek), as well as significant television placements including All My Children, Women’s Murder Club, Malcolm In The Middle, a coveted placement in George Clooney’s final episode of ER, the theme song for WB Network’s dramedy Pepper Dennis and a cameo on-screen appearance with the show’s star, Rebecca Romjin.
Bea sings and strums her folk-pop songs with the same sincerity she uses to write them. Her third album, Old Habits, is her first full-length studio effort, and is outfitted with the formidable talents of Grammy Award-winning drummer and noted producer, Brady Blade (Dave Matthews, Emmylou Harris, Jewel) and accomplished award winning engineer, Chris Bell (U2, The Eagles, Erykah Badu).
