One small place that is known for making people’s big dreams come true is a little island called Manhattan. Right across the water from Manhattan is yet another little island called Staten, where people’s dreams also come true. One dreamer who comes from Staten Island is Karlus Trapp.
Trapp recently visited the radio station of Lifestyles for the Disabled for an interview and a performance. This recording includes the radio premiere of his song “Island Boy,” which talks about growing up on Staten Island and people’s assumptions. Trapp started his musical career at the early age of five, when he started taking piano lessons. Since then, his love of music had continued to grow. By the age of eleven, he and his friends had started to teach themselves how to play the guitar. Now Trapp plays both the acoustic and amplified guitar. Describing his style, he says, “It’s Karlus Trapp music. I’m influenced by the music of Kansas City and California and England, Motown, the Beatles, New Orleans, rock and roll, jazz from the 30’s, so my music can’t be classified.”
Today, Trapp plays his music around the Island and the New York City area. He can be seen performing at Staten Island’s Burrito Bar and Bayou Restaurant as well as at many local events, including weddings, festivals, and other parties. You can find more information on Trapp online at www.Karlustrapp.com. Listen to Trapp’s interview at the Lifestyles Audio Vault on SoundCloud.
