Travers Brothers Band - TBB (Independent)
The Travers Brothers Band is a young North Carolina quartet, featuring siblings Kyle (guitar and vocals) and Eric (drums and vocals) Travers. The remaining members are Ian McIsaac (drums and percussion) and Josh Clark (bass and vocals).

With a sound rooted firmly in the late ’60 and early ‘70s, guitarist Kyle regularly steps up to the plate to provide the sort of solos that link directly back to musicians such as Jimi Hendrix and Duane Allman. There’s no denying the simple thrill of a well-executed six-string solo, however unfashionable, especially when placed within the right setting, and this they do repeatedly. The band are consummate musicians, jam-band aficionados with a deep understanding of their preferred genre. Put simply, they rock, and in doing so, their enthusiasm, gusto and talents carry the day.

“TBB” is their debut studio album, and there are plentiful highlights. Opening with “Bad Thing Comin'”, it begins with a wonderfully fluid bass line, which sticks around to deftly spar with the lengthy guitar solo that ends the track. “Time for a Change” doesn’t shirk its soloing responsibilities but indicates they’re just as adept at songwriting, and “TCE” touches on metal themes of doom and apocalypse, but with a certain lightness of touch. The six-minute “Shanty Town Shuffle” may imply a reggae rhythm, but instead it unwinds and expands like a long-lost Stevie Ray Vaughan number.

Bio

Imagine feeling yourself submerged in a groove, you can't help but move to the rhythm as you watch the tides of music flow in and out of your vision, whilst hearing the exhilarating sound being emitted.

After the music has finished pouring from the band stand you are thrust back to reality, only to yearn for more and more. The sensation described is a Travers Brothers Band live experience.

With a sprinkle of a bit of modern alternative influence, the heavy flow of jam bands, the massive hits and screams of essential rock, and the ever so desirable touch of soul and the blues straight out of the delta. We, the Travers Brothers, believe that it is our solemn duty to deliver the best quality music to the people, and make it our goal during every show to rock the minds of every person in the audience. We are extremely proud to say that no mind has ever been disappointed with the sound that we create.

The band began with two brothers, Kyle and Eric Travers, searching for a new, creative sound to unveil to the masses.. One day in Black Mountain NC, a jam in an old beat down garage occurred with two new faces: Josh Clark, and Ian McIssac. Afterwards the four brothers felt an intense musical awakening, the band jammed relentlessly throughout the next year. After becoming tighter and tighter through two years of local shows the Travers Brothers Brothers Band are releasing their debut album in August 2011.
"If this album and these guys don't take off soon, I may have lost all faith in today's musical world."
