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.
