Strong poetry, complex melodies, clever wit.
Cheryl Wheeler has to be seen to be appreciated. Nothing you read and nothing you hear from her albums prepares you for how good a performer she is. With Wheeler the question is always "what will she say next"?

One minute she's singing about her cat speaking in French, she then shifts syllabic inflections on the pronunciation of the word 'Potato', and then leaves you on the verge of tears with a relationship song. She will talk about some serious current event, and then sing a song that will have you howling with laughter.

Wheeler's songs are often emotional portraits of people, leaving you with the impression that you know the characters. You find yourself being pulled into the song rather than standing outside and observing. She will talk about some serious current event, and then sing a song that will have the audience howling with laughter.

"Rare artist... strong poetry, complex melodies, clever wit." - SingOut!

Chris Trapper is a songwriter of the highest caliber.

Trapper began his career as the front man for late-90's alternative rock band The Push Stars. 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 the band members went separate ways, Trapper took the acoustic route. His songs can best be described as lyrically driven roots pop with a knack for telling everyday stories filled with extraordinary characters. Chris can boast high profile film placements including There's Something About Mary and The Devil Wears Prada as well as significant television placements including Malcolm In The Middle and a coveted placement in George Clooney's final episode of ER
