Chris Trapper reached acclaim as part of a music trio with The Push Stars and has since branched out on his own to record some amazing music. Chris is also an accomplished song writer with several credited feature film and network TV song placements.

The album Symphonies of Dirt & Dust is an absolute delight to listen to. I hate to pigeon hole this album into a specific genre because there are so many elements in Chris’s writing and style that cross the bounds of Pop, Roots Rock and even a little bit of Folk here and there. This is an album that you can see someone playing every day for months in the car on the way to work. The songs are catchy and easy to love. I especially appreciated the instrumental song “Boston Strong” at the end of the album. The quiet un-assuming placement on the album adds just one more level to show the artistic craftsmanship that went into this wonderful piece of art. I have to say props to you Chris.

Standouts include “Into the Bright Lights”, “Honest Man in California” and of course “F#*k it”.
