Hailing from Madison, WI, 20 year-old Trapo is often regarded as one of the hottest independent artists in the country. Self-described as literally living in the studio, Trapo began recording and mixing his music from his bedroom in the fifth grade. When his debut mixtape,The Black Beverly Hills, arrived in late 2015, it quickly garnered ‘best new artist’ designations from Pigeons & Planes and BBC Radio 1. He followed the successful project with the quick-strike EP, SHE, spawning the hit single “Chicago,” which rose to No. 2 on Spotify’s Global Viral Tracks chart in April 2016. Trapo's follow-up album, Shade Trees, released in November 2016 would continue to earn him praise and he has become a rare member of Pigeons and Planes' 20 Under 20 list for three consecutive years in a row. Trapo rounded out 2018 with a highly-regarded EP, Oil Change.
Now Trapo is releasing his first single of 2019, "In This Car." A conceptual track of self-reflection, "In This Car" is still an undeniable banger produced by Hush Forte. "In This Car" epitomizes Trapo's originality and the ambitious new single will also be found on the upcoming A3C Festival compilation.
