Featured Artist: Trapper Schoepp
Trapper Schoepp is one of those songwriters and storytellers whose music feels natural -- everything unfurls at its own pace, and every element is where it needs to be. It's a rare gift, and it's on full display via his new album, Primetime Illusion. Produced in Milwaukee by Patrick Sansone (Wilco, Robyn Hitchcock), Primetime Illusion sees Trapper reaching for his own place in the canon with a truly remarkable collection of character-driven songs and stories. These carefully etched sonic snapshots detail the struggles of people we all know to fulfill their own American dream. Featuring a co-write with Bob Dylan about Schoepp's home state of Wisconsin, the album has been featured in Rolling Stone, Billboard and American Songwriter. Schoepp will be on tour in support of the album in the EU, UK and USA throughout 2019-20.
