Travis Elliott & Friends + Lord Nelson

Release Party Holiday Spectacular

About Travis Elliott:

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, SPOILING THE LOCAL CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA AUDIENCE WITH HIS MUSIC AND WITTY HUMOR.  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 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. DEFINITELY NOT THE KIND OF MUSIC FOR YOGA, BUT DON’T EXPECT TO GET IT OUT OF YOUR HEAD EITHER.

About Lord Nelson:

“Though only five on the stage, they generate enough sound for double that, and that’s just the music coming out of them and creating a ruckus. Whether it’s harmony driven, southern rock guitar lickin’, or foot stompin’ porch pickin’, they are at home in the music they make – unique, almost spiritual, and powerful.”
-Nashville 360
