We’re thrilled to finally reveal the signing of Trapper Schoepp & The Shades to SideOneDummy. We’ve had this cat in the bag for quite some time now and we’re ecstatic to finally start working with these fine gentlemen and spread the word of the release of their record “Run, Engine, Run” on September 25th.
PRESS RELEASE EXCERPT:
Milwaukee’s Reigning Roots Rockers Trapper Schoepp & The Shades Release Run, Engine, Run on SideOneDummy Records on Tuesday, September 25, 2012
Trapper Schoepp has the ear of a troubadour, the eye of a journalist and the heart of a young poet. He began writing songs at a tender age with startling facility, distilling rock, folk and country traditions into tunes that are at turns spirited and melancholy. Themes ranging from pride of place, love and adventure shine with surprisingly sophisticated metaphors for a songwriter so young. Run, Engine, Run won’t be out of place filed next to other artists distinguished for their early talent like Justin Townes Earle, Ha Ha Tonka and Lucero. Trapper, his brother Tanner, and the rest of their band the Shades offer this album as a love letter to their beloved home state of Wisconsin, and SideOneDummy will release it internationally on September 25, 2012.
“Tracks” from the album ‘Run, Engine, Run’
Pre-Order will be available soon at the SideOneDummy Online Store.
