Chris Trapper For One Night Only! w/ Special Guest Jared Mahone


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 Prine and Kristofferson, Trapper's first foray in the music industry was as frontman of the critically acclaimed alt-rock band THE PUSH STARS (Capitol Records). On September 21st, 2018, The Push Stars released “3 Feet In The Air”, their first album of new material in 14 years. Recorded at the legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN, the record features 12 songs penned by Trapper, who also serves as the band’s lead singer and guitarist. As a solo artist for more than a 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.  

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.”

"Since the split of the Push Stars, one of Boston’s brightest pop bands of the past two decades, singer-songwriter Chris Trapper has developed into a prolific, captivating artist with a unique musical voice. His 10th solo record accentuates his unerring melodic instincts and thoughtful narrative skill. As the title suggests, the love songs here are postcards from the road, filled with yearning and devotion. The lyrics’ wounded soulfulness is grounded by the slightly weathered edge Trapper’s voice has acquired with age. The best songs (“Symphonies of Dirt & Dust”) are buoyed by his telling eye for details, wit, and subtly defined hooks." Ken Capobianco - The Boston Globe

Jared Mahone

Singer/songwriter Jared Mahone has been touring nationally from the inside out for nearly a decade impressing audiences with a wide-range of talents drawing from Ohio soul, story-teller poets, pop melodies, and even classic hip hop. He unexpectedly hands an audience a sound they didn't realized they would love, coupling transparent venerability with his Midwest "garage soul" sonics. Jared's everyman persona connects in a deep and lasting way across a wide spectrum of what are often disconnected cultures within America. His latest album, Mixtape, was created from a crowd-focused and crowd-inspired song-a-week writing project where his fan base chose the track listing from the completed catalog. It was produced by Jerry DePizzo of multi-platinum jam-rock band O.A.R., mixed by Grammy winner Mike Landolt (Maroon 5) and mastered by Grammy winner Brian Lucey (Black Keys, Dr. John, Beck), all who work from Jared's hometown of Columbus, Ohio.
