Singer-songwriter Chris Trapper, will give a guest lecture to students at Stevenson College Edinburgh on Monday 7 December in the Music Box auditorium.
Chris Trapper is based in Boston, USA, and has had several of his songs picked up for major motion picture soundtracks including There's Something About Mary, Me, Myself and Irene, the Devil Wears Prada and his music has featured on the TV show ER.
He is also as the front man for the nationally acclaimed pop/rock band The Push Stars, whose “honest, heartfelt songs with timeless melodies” were described as “the kind of music that songwriters love” by Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty.
Chris said he is very “pleased and proud” to add Stevenson to his schedule and the students can expect a performance and informal chat about his career in the music industry.
Stevenson College Music Lecturer, Colin Train, said:
“We are thrilled that Chris will be giving a guest lecture for our students. I believe that it is vital for all aspiring musicians to be exposed to as much real life, music industry experience as possible; this will be a fantastic opportunity for them.
It will also be a great opportunity for our students to meet such an established singer songwriter and see him perform and share his experiences in the music industry with them. This will definitely give them a boost of inspiration.”
