Bio

Travis hails from Charlotte, NC these days, but was born in Dallas, Texas. He spent several years in Johnson City, Tennessee where he picked up his blues influence. Travis’s guitar style is unique and all original. His music is in-between genres. It’s been described as a blend of blues, alt-country, and southern rock, but it’s always acoustic. Travis is known for his own brand of hard driving, fist pounding, mayhem on the acoustic guitar. He received his first guitar at the age of thirteen, and at eighteen he picked up the banjo. With his banjo he quickly learned the art of finger picking. He transferred these techniques to the guitar, and experimented with alternate tunings. This has lead to his own guitar style which he calls, “Freestyleguitar”. Some of Travis’s songs have been played on National Public Radio’s “All Thing Considered” and on other acoustic based radio programs.
