Trapper Schoepp is a young man who’s befriended a strange and diverse cast of characters during his 24 years. That small army of rogues and rebels, drifters and dreamers, soldiers and schemers populate his songs, their tragedies and comedies recalled in his finely etched musical vignettes.
Produced by pop polymath and Raconteurs member Brendan Benson in Nashville, Rangers & Valentines finds Schoepp handling vocals, guitar and harmonica. He’s aided by an array of estimable musicians including Steve Selvidge (The Hold Steady), John Davis (Superdrag), the McCrary Sisters -- even comedian and WTF podcaster Marc Maron chips in on vocals and guitar.
