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).
"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.”
A prolific songwriter, Chris can boast high profile film placements including There's Something About Mary (Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz), The Devil Wears Prada (Meryl Streep), Say It Isn’t So (Heather Graham) and Gun Shy (Sandra Bullock, Liam Neeson) as well as significant television placements including All My Children, Women's Murder Club, Malcolm In The Middle, a coveted placement in George Clooney's final episode of ER, the theme song for WB Networks dramedy Pepper Dennis and a cameo on-screen appearance with the show's star, Rebecca Romjin.
A respected songwriter of the highest caliber, Chris has written 7 songs with/for Canadian band GREAT BIG SEA, including their #1 single "Sea Of No Cares" from the certified-platinum Sea Of No Cares CD. Great Big Sea covered Trapper's song "Everything Shines” and their version served as the debut single off their certified-gold Road Rage CD album. Chris’ songwriting collaborations with Great Big Sea earned him two prestigious SOCAN awards. Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty and Antigone Rising have performed other notable versions of Trapper's songs.
Robert Gillies is one part award-winning songwriter, one part folk-popper, and every bit an infectiously energetic performer. Ask him what he writes and the may take you by surprise: "Soap rock. I write folky, poppy, soft rock. Too many words for a genre. So I put it all together and got soap rock. It says it all, though; soap is bubbly and refreshing, and that's what I love to play. Music that gets you high on life and deeper in
