Biography

Travega are a six piece Rock Band from Dublin. Currently the band are preparing themselves for the release and promotion of their debut album which was recorded at The Farm & The Armoury Studios in Vancouver. Gggarth Richardson was the Producer (Rage against the machine, nickelback, Biffy clyro, Red hot chilli peppers etc) Ben Kaplan the Engineer. The lads and lady spent around ten weeks in Canada and then 3 weeks in New York with Josh Wilbur as it was being mixed and mastered.

There is no date set yet for the release but in the mean time Travega continue to gig throughout the counrty to promote and perfect their art.

Travega began to form in January 2004. As a quartet the band won the Xlantic Records Battle of the bands in "Eamon Dorans" making the pages of the "Star" newspaper with their victory. A later gig at "Whelans" in Dublin marked the first of many sell-out gigs for the band and paved the way for their musical development.

Travega's recording debut came in the summer of 2005 as a 3 track E.P. produced by singer songwriter Declan O'Rourke and recorded by Robbie Sexton of "Blink". Sixteen months later, with a number of sell-out performances in Dublin including Whelans, The Village and Crawdaddy, Travega, now a sextet, released their debut single, "The People", in Ireland on 27th October 2006. The single entered the Irish charts at number 27 and remained there for a number of weeks. The promotion of the single was aided by a video directed by Peter Foott of vico Films, live performances on Dublin’s 98FM, Spin 103.8FM, TG4, The City Channel, along with other regional radio stations around the counrty.

Following the debut release Travega embarked on an extensive Irish tour to further promote the single.

Hotpress Magazine had this to say about "The People":

Good Irish hard rock has been a bit hard to come by, but this is a very, very promising debut from the Dublin six piece. The arrangement is
clever, and the extravagant keyboard flourishings are impressive.
Phil Udell(Hotpress Magazine 2006)
