Chris Trapper to Play Spotlight Cafe at Capitol Center For The Arts, 9/12
Former Push Stars front man Chris Trapper comes to Concord for an intimate performance at the Capitol Center for the Arts' Spotlight Café on September 12, at 8pm. 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. 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).
A prolific songwriter, Chris can boast high profile film placements including There's Something About Mary (Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz), The Devil Wears Prada (Meryl Streep), Say It Isn't So (Heather Graham) and Gun Shy (Sandra Bullock, Liam Neeson) as well as significant television placements including All My Children, Women's Murder Club, Malcolm In The Middle, a coveted placement in George Clooney's final episode of ER, the theme song for WB Networks dramedy Pepper Dennis and a cameo on-screen appearance with the show's star, Rebecca Romjin.
A respected songwriter of the highest caliber, Chris has written 7 songs for Canadian band Great Big Sea, including their #1 single Sea Of No Cares from the certified platinum Sea Of No Cares CD. Great Big Sea covered Trapper's song Everything Shines and their version served as the debut single off their certified gold Road Rage album. Chris' songwriting collaborations with Great Big Sea earned him two prestigious SOCAN awards. Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty and Antigone Rising have performed other notable versions of Trapper's songs.
