By his mid thirties, singer/songwriter/guitarist Travis Elliott has been around—touring the United States and Carribbean, opening for regional and nation acts, and of course, his home, Charlottesville, Virginia. His music has been described as pop, alternative, a little folky, rock, Americana, and most of all, catchy. His first EP in 2005 was hailed by Charlottesville’s The Hook as a “modern rock epic,” and in 2008 he earned Best Solo Artist of the Year by C’ville Weekly. In 2010, Travis released his first full length album, Swan Dive, which spent a week in iTunes’ New & Noteworthy section.
Travis’ ability to bring in various musicians for a last minute gig gives his music a fresh angle and new sound on any given night. Lately, however, he has found righteous consistency with the added guitar playing from Tucker Rogers, thundering piano and vocals/harmony from Kristen Bowden and modest cajon percussion from Drex Weaver.
His melodies follow the natural rhythm of life, and his lyrics speak to the soul with passion…and don’t expect to get his songs out of your head, either.
