Some Milwaukee songs and videos practically bleed Milwaukee. Others are literally called “Milwaukee.” Back in 2019, tireless Milwaukee troubadour Trapper Schoepp delivered a Milwaukee-heavy video for his Bob Dylan co-write “On, Wisconsin.” Now, in support of his excellent 2021 release May Day, Schoepp has gone full Milwaukee with a video for breezy album track “I Am A Rider.” And he brought his little dog along, too.
The “I Am A Rider” clip is a virtual bike tour of some of the city’s most beloved spots: Lake Park, Pabst Brewery, the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Domes, the Urban Ecology Center, Leon’s, and much more. Hell, we even get a glimpse of that Boat House on the East Side. Produced by Samer Ghani and co-starring Schoepp’s Boston Terrier pal Leroy, the video also serves as a perfect summer day bottled up into three minutes. It’s bright, it’s sunny, it’s Milwaukee.
