WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Trapps are an American band tapping the roots of Americana, Folk and Rock and Roll with a strong emphasis on "the song" and lyrical fiber. All at once they grab you with powerful harmonies like the Jayhawks or rivet you with a high intensity jam like the Black Crowes, but for this band, it is never done loosely or in a way that pulls the listener away from the essence and presentation of the song itself. Full of risk and heart, they weave universal themes into a musical fabric that is entirely original yet feels like you have known the sound your entire life. Jason Fine, Executive Editor, of Rolling Stone Magazine, says The Trapps are "Elegant yet raw, darkly emotional but shot through with light…rangy experimental roots rock played with confidence and hope." Johnny Black, Music Director, High Plains Public Radio, Amarillo, TX says The Trapps are "An indie "roots" Americana act with raw, stark, honest-to-Hank emotional intensity and musical ability."
