Travis Peery is a dynamic new voice on the Los Angeles music scene. His original songwriting blends romantic lyrics with a strong sense of melody which will have you stomping your feet and singing along to his memorable choruses. His powerful vocals, which blend the grit of roots rock vocalists like Rich Robinson of the Black Crowes with the sweet and soulful style of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, really bring his songs to life.
From before the time he was born, Travis was exposed to some of the greatest music of all time. While still in the womb, his father (a jazz pianist) and his mother would put headphones around his mother’s belly and play him everything from Beethoven to the Rolling Stones. Judging by the kicks of delight that resulted from this earliest of musical educations, his parents could tell that music would become an important part of his life.
He first started playing music as a pre-schooler with music lessons that ranged from hitting bongo drums, to singing, to a few chords on the guitar and piano. His true dedication to music, however, began in college when his roommate (and current manager Daniel Artiano) brought an acoustic guitar back to their dorm his sophomore year. Travis learned as much as he could from his friends who played and eventually joined the rock group Double Stamp as lead singer and guitarist in his junior year. The band initially played classic rock covers but steadily began to incorporate Travis’s original compositions into their shows. After graduating from Claremont, Travis and the other members of Double Stamp began recording what turned into an album titled “Hand Tighten Only” which was finished in late 2007 and is now available for download from Amazon MP3 and itunes.
Travis now lives in Los Angeles where he writes songs that he performs locally as well as at music venues up and down the state. His new album "Idea of a Girl" was released in October of 2009 and is now available for purchase from amazon mp3, itunes, and physical copies at his live shows.
