ABOUT TRAPPERS CABIN...
Joel Nettesheim bought his first 4 track while living in Milwaukee. Endless tapes, countless experiments and lo-fi albums ensued. The man known as Trappers Cabin was coming to life through his music.
Trappers packed up everything he had and began a journey south, leaving the midwest and not knowing what the future might hold. His wagon busted a wheel in Georgia…..a mighty good spot to be stranded and setup shop. A musical blossoming period began and new albums were created. A definite “Trappers Cabin” sound was evolving and becoming signature.
Away in the woods, he rarely saw the outside world. So isolated, he had no idea that NPR listed him #3 on the top 10 Best Unknown Artists in 2007 (how ironic). One of the local mountain papers wrote; “Trappers Cabin’s prolific recordings, which span the last decade, display his eccentric song writing, beautiful arrangements, and meticulous production. Nettesheim is one of our nation’s top hidden talents.”
