Milwaukee-based troubadour Trapper Schoepp returned to his critically acclaimed 2016 album, Rangers and Valentines, for his latest video outing, "Mono Pt. II." Inspired by his real-life encounter with mononucleosis, “Mono Pt. II” explores the kissing disease and the institutional runaround of health care in America - a subject all too familiar to the young singer-songwriter who was misdiagnosed, prescribed an incorrect medication, and ultimately, landed in the ER with a severe allergic reaction. The darkly humorous feature, directed by Caroline Jaecks (Joan Jett, Craig Finn), draws from those experiences and finds a hospitalized Schoepp in a standoff with a nurse whose bedside manner is quite questionable.

Released in 2016, Rangers & Valentines was produced by the Raconteurs' Brendan Benson in Nashville and features members of The Hold Steady and Superdrag, as well as GLOW star and WTF podcast host Marc Maron. In 2017, Schoepp toured extensively in the U.S. supporting the release of Bay Beach Amusement Park, his well-received concept EP based on the beloved Wisconsin amusement park. Currently on tour in Europe until the end of April, Schoepp will bring his engaging story songs and electrified roots rock show stateside when he joins the BoDeans on their upcoming U.S. Tour.
