The Trapps combine thought provoking lyrical content with tempered musical fire.
Now in their second decade playing together, The Trapps were formed in the winter of 2003 by singer-songwriter (and acoustic rhythm guitarist) Sean Schenker and some of his closest musical friends, and the band quickly garnered critical acclaim. In 2006, The Trapps released their debut CD, and “Alright Now,” a cut from it, won first prize for best song in the AAA/Alternative category in the 2006 International Acoustic Music Awards.
“Elegant yet raw, darkly emotional but also shot through with light.” – Jason Fine, Managing Editor of Rolling Stone Magazine
“It’s time for the whole country to finally hear The Trapps.”- Gary Chetkoff, President of WDST Radio Woodstock
