    CHRIS TRAPPER. A modern day folk–singer whose live show is a favorite among fans of alt–acoustic music. Chris’ organic understanding of classic pop melody is infectious. His on–stage persona is warm and inclusive, his songs speak to the heart and to everyday experiences. Audience members seem to particularly appreciate the lighthearted moments with the ukulele. Chris is perhaps most known for his original song This Time, the #1 selling tune on the Grammy nominated soundtrack for AUGUST RUSH (Warner Bros Pictures). Original frontman for 90’s alternative rock band THE PUSH STARS, Chris Trapper is equally sure–footed in his solo career with original tunes on 5 solo CD’s, a variety of film and TV placements, and the distinction of having co–written the focus tracks on Fortune’s Favour, the gold record from Canadian band GREAT BIG SEA. Recently, Chris Trapper placed three songs from his current CD 'Til The Last Leaf Falls, in indie film FIGHTING FISH starring Val Emmich and Anna Moore. FIGHTING FISH is the first feature coming from producer Bertha Bay-Sa Pan's recently launched Slew Pictures (Face, Almost Perfect). Chris Trapper’s ability to craft songs that are both elegant and accessible is evident on each CD in his deep Discography. There is a smart, honest quality to the lyrics that never panders. Chris Trapper’s music can best be described as intricate power pop with a compelling knack for telling everyday stories. “It’s an incredibly rare musician, particularly in the world of popular music, who is able to forge a career based on quiet dignity and steadfast integrity.“ The Buffalo News “With their rich, evocative ambiance, his songs consistently provide an immediate listenability.“ Performing Songwriter “This [Til The Last Leaf Falls] is an artful album about a man in thoughtful transition in life. And he includes his own version of the gently lilting “This Time,“ which he wrote for the “August Rush“ soundtrack (actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers sang it in the movie). Trapper is an incurable romantic and you’ll see why here.“ The Boston Globe
