Ep. 42: Trapper Schoepp- Americana Singer/Songwriter

Trapper Schoepp is a musical force to be reckoned with. His brand new album, "Siren Songs," is his strongest effort to date, and was recorded in the Cash Cabin, a retreat and private recording studio built by the legendary Man in Black, himself, Johnny Cash.

With fourteen songs in hand, Trapper arrived at the fabled cabin with Jayhawks multi-instrumentalist, John Jackson, and Wilco basset, Pat Sansone to produce Trapper's new album.

Trapper and I dig into his musical journey and how he ended up the youngest person to share a songwriting credit with another musical legend, Bob Dylan.

You will hear two great cuts from "Siren Songs" during the episode and hear Trap and I chat about his experience touring with Americana powerhouse bands like Old 97 and The Jayhawks, and even how I got to introduce Trapper years ago at a show in San Diego. It's a blast of a chat that I hope you enjoy.

TRAPPER is ON THE ROAD! Keep up with show dates, pick up some merch at his website:
