New Release – Devil’s Kettle by Trapper Schoepp

Trapper Schoepp is a Milwaukee (USA) folk-rock singer perhaps best known for his co-write with Bob Dylan, ‘On, Wisconsin’. His new single ’Devil’s Kettle’ came out 17th February.

“This one is inspired by the Devil’s Kettle, a mysterious rock formation and waterfall I encountered along Highway 61. A river splits below these waterfalls, with one tributary to Lake Superior and the other flowing underground to an unknown location… It is said gangsters like Al Capone would dispose of bodies in this natural phenomenon.”

“It was recorded and mixed in Johnny Cash’s Historic Cash Cabin! I had the honour of recording this track with Johnny Cash’s 1930s Martin Guitar. It was called the “shitkicker” guitar because it long sat on Johnny’s couch where it was often played by his pals.”

“The video features me playing in a pond on the Cash family grounds mixed with ancient black and white cartoons. I made it myself on iMovie!”

About the artwork:

“Joseph Cash got out in a canoe when the sun was just right and captured this swampy picture!”
