Chris Trapper
Pop | Boston MA

CHRIS 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 newest CD (released October 2011), The Few & The Far Between, is a collection of 14 songs written and performed by Chris Trapper. This new work was Produced, Recorded and Mixed by Dan McLoughlin (The Push Stars, Mike Peters, Juliana Hatfield) at the Vault Recording Studio, Hoboken, NJ. Focus tracks include the CD opener, Here All Along, featuring guest vocals by Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, The More I Think featuring vocals and slide guitar by Colin Hay of Men at Work and Ghost In Your Arms featuring backing vocals from Boston's own Kristen Cifelli. The New York Times calls his work "classic pop perfection."

Clarence Bucaro
Rock | New York NY

Over five albums literate and honey-voiced singer-songwriter Clarence Bucaro has crafted an impressive canon of uplifting Americana, garnering comparisons to Jackson Browne and Van Morrison.

The Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter built his career on a robust 300-shows-per-year schedule sharing stages with such diverse and established artists as Aaron Neville, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders, North Mississippi Allstars, and Fountains of Wayne.

Clarence's upcoming fifth album, Walls Of The World, released April 3rd 2012 on 20/20 Records, is his most ambitious and diverse to date. WOTW is jointly produced by Hector Castillo (David Bowie, Björk, Lou Reed, and Rufus Wainwright) and Chocolate Genius and benefits from the complimentary approaches of Castillo's organic ambience and Chocolate Genius's knack for nuanced, moody electronic flourishes.

Conceptually it's a thematic piece using walls as metaphor for political and personal division. The album is inspired by the works of controversial Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk's Snow and conflict journalist Asne Seierstad's Angel of Grozny; Clarence's own on-the-scene reportage from Jerusalem, Cuba, Morocco, and Russia; and his inner journey of first-time fatherhood.

The Cleveland, Ohio native established himself with critically acclaimed albums like his Anders Osborne-produced debut Sweet Corn (Anders is best known for penning Tim McGraw's 3-million selling single "Watch The Wind Blow") and his Rounder Records sophomore album Sense Of Light. Walls Of The World is an interpersonal and personal travelogue scored by an ambient and soulful production aesthetic bittersweet enough to evoke the dissonance in the human struggle but warm enough for the music to fill you with hope.
