I've been a fan of Chris Trapper and his band The Push Stars since I first heard their song "Any Little Town" on the radio in the late 90s. The band instantly hooked me with clever power pop songs that reminded me of Crowded House, Counting Crows and The Cure. Since then, I've become an even bigger fan of his solo acoustic work and songs like "If You're Still There" and "Skin." Chris is a brilliant storyteller with sly humor and an uncanny knack for melody. Over the past decade, he's become a modern day acoustic troubadour, performing over 150 dates a year as a headliner and sharing the stage with the likes of Rob Thomas, Colin Hay, Martin Sexton and John Prine.
More polished than folk and more personal than pop, Michelle Lewis writes intensely visual songs with a gut punch of emotion. As a storyteller, she explores life's defining moments, juggling the immediacy of first-hand experience with the serenity of emotional wisdom. Her lyrics find beauty in sadness, her music is rich with melody. Intimate folk lyrics wash over over a whirlpool of lush production. Refrains of acoustic virtuosity accompany modern soundscapes that might keep a second home in dream-pop. Guided by her musical influences — Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Patty Griffin, and Jewel among others — Michelle's style is truly her own.
