Chris Trapper - TWO SHOWS!! w/ Special Guest Mary Scholz


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

Special Guest Mary Scholz

Internationally touring singer/songwriter Mary Scholz is a live circuit favorite. Touring all over the US, Europe and the UK, the Philadelphia born, Los Angeles based artist is best known for her haunting, lyrical voice, her folk/rock melodies, thoughtful guitar work, and her personal connection to her audience on stage. Much of Scholz’s material addresses transition, with bittersweet melodies and lyrics that speak of the importance of knowing yourself, and the strength it takes to trust your intuition – to always move forward. Her 2014 release, The Girl You Thought You Knew laced folk with pop to walk through the struggles of ending a significant relationship (aka divorce). The record included the HMMA nominated Bridges We Burn. Her newest release, California, is a deeper dive into the more raw, organic side of Scholz’s songwriting, which has garnered her the nickname “Folk Explorer” with musicians in town. The LP was recorded live, in one room, to an Ampex 8 track tape machine, and is her first vinyl pressing. It is about moving forward. Continuing the journey.

A graduate of the University of the Arts, Mary has toured with a message of Love, Strength and Hope (in the “be your own champion” way) for the past eleven years.

“You are your own best compass. Know one can forge your path for you, and no one can see it better than you can. Trust yourself.”
