Trapper Schoepp (from the album Siren Songs available on Grand Phony Music) (by Danny McCloskey)
An anthemic rush of guitar chords and true-believer vocals fervently open Siren Songs chanting “Cliffs of Dover”. The album is the recent release from Milwaukee, Wisconsin songman Trapper Schoepp. Siren Songs collects the works of a storyteller, the tracks veer across soundscapes featuring vaguely Celtic hints of an ‘Amazing Grace’ melody (“Good Graces”) as bright chord strums carry advice (“The Fool”) as Trapper Schoepp bids goodbye to “Eliza” and strides a quick pace towards “7 Mile Fair”.
Stirring “Devil’s Kettle” with a swamp groove shuffle Trapper Shoepp delivers a warning as light fingerpicking offers a melodic bed for “Anna Lee”, a bright, high-stepping rhythm surrounds the secular story in “Diocese”, and a tangle of notes weave a pattern in “Silk and Satin”. Produced by John Jackson (The Jayhawks, Ray Davies) and Patrick Sansone (Wilco), the recording of Siren Songs took place at Johnny Cash’s historic Cash Cabin in Hendersonville, Tennessee. Trapper Schoepp opens his musical songbook, offering a handful of new songs that feel like old friends as Siren Songs calls out to “Queen of the Mist” as a maiden dares the treacherous plunge over Niagara Falls while “In Returning” closes the album with a piano reverie surrounding the scribblings of a sea-born traveler.
