“Abilene on the Road” proudly presents

Chris Trapper began his career as the front man for late-90’s alternative rock band The Push Stars (Capital Records). 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 singer-songwriter, Chris is most known for his original song, “This Time,” the #1 selling song on the Grammy-nominated soundtrack for the film 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.”
