Chris Trapper’s music can best be described as lyrically driven roots pop with a knack for telling everyday stories filled with extraordinary characters. He was raised in Buffalo, NY but moved to Boston, MA in 1991. There he began his recording career as the singer/guitarist for The Push Stars, a critically acclaimed alt-rock trio that released 4 CD’s and toured with such high profile national acts as Matchbox 20. Trapper began a solo career with 2002’s “Songs from the Drive-In,” and has 9 CD releases to date. He is touring to support his 2013 pop disc, “Technicolor.”
Trapper is a prolific songwriter, boasting high-profile placements, including the feature film “There’s Something About Mary” and TV’s “Malcolm In the Middle.” Trapper is perhaps best known for the song “This Time,” featured in the 2008 film “August Rush,” for which he was nominated for a Grammy. He was also nominated for “Songwriter of the Year” and “Male Performer of the Year” at the New England Music Awards in 2012.
Trapper’s live show is a favorite among fans of all-acoustic music. He plays piano, guitar and ukulele. His on-stage persona is warm and inclusive, his organic understanding of classic pop melody, infectious.

This exhibition will highlight works by outstanding artists of African descent (both living and deceased) in Haiti and in the United States, and will be the vehicle for educational programming that contextualizes these pieces within the African American and the more encompassing American cultures.
