Trapper was trained in piano and drums at a young age. Later, he taught himself guitar (as if you couldn’t tell) and took voice lessons (as if you COULD tell). He has also mastered a full range of audio software products and tools including performance/composition instruments and production suites.
His recent albums were written and recorded on artist residencies in the small towns Hellisandur, Iceland (“Not Here But Now”) and Bilpin, Australia (“Gardens Of Tone”). All songs in these collections were inspired by those wild and dramatic landscape and the interesting people living there.
When not roaming, Trapper splits his time between Seattle and a secluded town in the North Cascade Mountains.
