Woody Guthrie’s daughter, Nora, says of Ellis Paul, “A singer and songwriter is only as good as the times he reflects. Wise, tender, brilliant and biting, Ellis is one of our best human compasses, marking in melodies and poems where we’ve been and where we might go if we so choose to. Personally Ellis, I’m goin’ where you’re goin’!” Ellis Paul is a critically-acclaimed singer, songwriter, poet, and troubadour originally hailing from a potato farming family in northern Maine, and began performing locally while attending Boston College. He is the recipient of thirteen Boston Music Awards, second only to multi-platinum act, Aerosmith. Over the course of fifteen years, Ellis Paul has built a vast catalog of music, which weds striking poetic imagery and philosophical introspection with hook-laden melodies. His 2011 release “The Day after Everything Changed” was recorded in Nashville, and features five songs co-written by his good friend, Kristian Bush of Sugarland. Recent releases include two award winning family albums and a holiday album. Ellis Paul’s latest new fan-funded studio album, “Chasing Beauty”, is set for release in March 2014. “Despite his success and sense of history, Mr. Paul remains an artist with his eye on the future and an interest in discovering the transformative potential of his music.” –New York Times

lizlinderpix-trapper_7792_lrCHRIS TRAPPER began his career as the front man for late-90’s alternative rock band THE PUSH STARS (Capitol 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 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).  The new CD (released October 18, 2013), Technicolor, is a collection of 17 songs written and performed by Chris Trapper.  This new work was Produced, Recorded, Mixed and Mastered by Brad Young at BKY Music, Boston, USA.  Focus tracks include the title track ‘Technicolor’ and ‘Northwest Sun’ and ‘The Accident’. Chris Trapper’s music can best be described as lyrically driven roots-pop with a knack for telling everyday stories filled with extra-ordinary characters.  “Every record tells a story. For me, much more than gimmicks, my albums are like diary entries, or truthful accounts of where I’m at in life. I suppose that might be the same for most songwriters, but in the spectrum of the music business, it’s still an animal that’s nearly extinct.”   Chris Trapper  In the Spring of 2013 Chris performed a duet with his songwriting idol  JOHN PRINE at the Portsmouth Songwriter Festival. In 2012 and 2013 Chris toured North America and the UK with multi platinum songwriter COLIN HAY. “His humble sense of humility is what makes Trapper’s songs so strong… He makes you feel like you are the person he’s singing about.  The Few & the Far Between is another strong addition to the Chris Trapper/Push Stars catalog.” Popdose The New York Times calls his work “classic pop perfection.” “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
