Pete Trappen got his first old, beat-up acoustic guitar at the age of 8 and learned to play it through sheer will. He eventually saved up enough money to buy an electric guitar, and he has now been a professional musician for over 30 years. Pete's vocal style sounds like Jimmy Buffett jamming with Jim Morrison at a roadhouse deep in the backwoods, and he finger-picks acoustic and electric guitars with a generous dose of Eric Clapton and Mark Knopfler on one hand, and the Stooges and Ramones on the other.
All parts are played by Pete Trappen using an Akai MPC midi controller for rhythm tracks, keyboards, violins, flutes, and Acoustic & Electric guitars and Harmonicas.
A heartbreaking story about how things couldn't get any worse when the subject of the song meets a Voodoo Witch with unexpected consequences. A bluesy rock setting with blistering guitar licks and a story line complete with barking dogs from hell. Male Vocals, Rock Music, Roots Rock
Folk-rock song in the Bob Dylan style. Spoken word, clever lyrics with a harmonica and chiming guitar arpeggios. A song about a girl who protests too much, talking behind your back, above it all. Lovely violin/cellos weave a sweeping codetta at the end. Male Vocals, Sound-Alikes Music, Bob Dylan Soundalikes
