Travis has been playing music for about 30 years. Piano lessons started at 6 until the instrument became uncool at the age of 11. Then it was classical guitar, which wasn't loud enough. Then it was bass, which was fun for a while, but proved to be difficult to use as a writing instrument. Finally, Travis found his way to the electric guitar (keys have been given a second chance) and the creation of hundreds of songs since the mid 90's.

He is probably most well known for his time as lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter of the Boston-based band, Piebald. Started in 1994, PIebald released 5 albums, and toured constantly until the "last shows" in 2008.

Travis' music is usually in the loud, boisterous, party-rock vein, but he definitely likes a good musical challenge. No matter what else is going on or happening in his existence, Travis will still be making music. Also, he really cares about your song so it takes him at least a month to get the tune to you! Thanks!
