Chris Trapper began his career as the front man for the 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.
The New York Times calls his work “classic pop perfection.”
As a modern day singer–songwriter, Chris is most known for his song This Time, the #1 selling song on the Grammy nominated soundtrack for August Rush (Robin Williams, Jonathan Rhys Meyers – Warner Bros Pictures).
“Last year, my Aunt Madalena introduced me to Chris Trapper’s music. Chris is a singer-songwriter from Boston. His song, “Avalanche” became my anthem as I worked hard to get to a point where I could return to work, and life in general. I shared the song with Allie along the way, and she and I both agreed that it was the perfect song for the two of us, as we both faced our “Avalanches.”
I was lucky enough to get to go see Chris Trapper in concert last spring with my Aunt Madalena, Aunt Laurie and cousin, Jenny. I was fascinated by his talent, and the way he connects with the audience. It honestly felt like when he was singing, he was only singing to me. Since that concert last April, I have fallen in love with all of Chris’s music. It is an understatement to say that his beautifully crafted songs have gotten me through many tough days.”– Katie Dama Jaskolski
