Trapdoor Social is entering 2017 with a new sense of urgency. After reconstituting itself from a duo to a 5-piece, their eponymous debut album is a raucous, anthemic environmental and social critique, erupting with signature blues rock and bass synth riffs. The new set is an impassioned call to action.

Excited to continue combining their music with activism as they've done with past fundraising projects with Homeboy Industries, Mesa Ridge High School, and Kids Cancer Connection, Trapdoor Social will be touring in early 2017 in their solar trailer, putting on clean energy, solar-powered concerts at universities and outdoor venues across the country.

2017 will also bring the second annual Sunstock Solar Festival, a 100% solar-powered arts and music festival in Los Angeles, founded by Trapdoor Social, with all proceeds going to charity.

GRAYÉ Music "We live for art and it lives through us. Our mind our tool, our voice an instrument to project our creativity. We will sing you the meaning of life, we will change your world with our songs."

From Samuel Scott McCumber's bio:

"To me, the best music happens organically. Capturing the emotions in moments through lyrics that are so resoundingly strong that they give you goosebumps. That, that is good music." says Omaha, Nebraska based musician Samuel Scott McCumber.

As a singer songwriter, Samuel focuses on writing about feelings, events, and memories that have brought him to today. In his early twenties, Samuel toured regionally with the reggae and alternative rock band, Crown's Folly. As the lead singer and guitarist, Samuel began his musical journey living life on the road, seldom knowing which adventure the tour would lead him to next.

After completing the band's tour, Samuel focused on his solo music career in his home state. Along the way, he met his now wife and label manager, Kelli, and began working at a local bank. Alongside his corporate job, Samuel released his first three singles under Flatwater Village label on iTunes in January 2017.
