Introducing | Trickster Guru

By Ross Jones

Trickster Guru is the eclectic and genre-transcending project of Christopher Caplan, a multi-instrumentalist from California who, through near tragedy and time spent in the bluesy-vibe of the garage rock scene, has arrived at marked point in his life and career Рan open-minded notion with primary focus on the importance of production and a penchant for theatrical expression.

At its most foundational level, Caplan delves in alternative pop – a metaphorical finger in many pies as the musician moulds jaunty guitar-pop with colliding synths and all washed down by the glistening pop production. ‘Act I’ of Trickster Guru‘s EP, ‘Problem Child’, ¬†is formed of the title track and the introductory single ‘Feel The Spirit’, two¬†sonically¬†contrasting singles that incorporate tempered melody with theatrically delivered atmospherics.

An enigmatic prospect, Trickster Guru wears a mask of intrigue and liberal thinking, all the whilst delivering hooks that will encompass.

Mini-album ‘Problem Child’ is available now – listen to the latest single and title-track below.
