TRAVIS MCGEE AND THE REVELERS RELEASE
“SIN LIST” EP

Brooklyn, New York, January 16, 2007 – Down the street from the Brooklyn Brewery, three native New Yorkers, a Southerner and a Dubliner are busy tweaking their set for a series of upcoming shows in support of their new CD. The band is Travis McGee and the Revelers, New York City’s answer to, “Whatever happened to original songwriting and solid, unpretentious rock and roll?” The CD is Sin List, a four-song debut EP that manages to encompass the band’s wide sonic range, from guitar-driven rockers to whimsical yet melancholy ballads. Sin List betrays the band’s rootsy influences, and the result is a smooth blend of enjoyable songs that are easy on the ears and light on the gimmicks.

Travis McGee and the Revelers are, in no particular order: Christopher Walsh, a hot-as-a-pistol lead guitarist, who brings a heavy blues influence to add a crucial edge to the music; Brian Campion, a Dublin born-and-bred bassist, bringing that storied Irish vigor to a group that often needs a good kick in the arse; Kieran McGee, a young virtuoso who is dedicating his limitless talents to the Revelers on pedal steel and keys; Philip Mann, an accomplished drummer with a beautiful and rangy voice to match, giving the music its heart and soul; and Travis McGee, lead vocalist and songwriter, whose Southern roots and New York City upbringing have instilled an eclectic approach to the creation of the band’s material.

“We are comprised of five very accomplished musicians, and just as importantly, we all share a common interest when it comes to our tastes in music,” said lead singer/songwriter Travis McGee. “There’s a sincerity that wouldn’t come through if the people playing the songs didn’t believe in it. Hopefully, that enthusiasm is evident on Sin List, as well as in our live performances.”

Sin List consists of four tracks: “Wear Me Down,” a catchy rocker in which Travis laments on that woman in your life who won’t disappear; “Hole in the Wall,” inspired by a trip to Death Valley that proved to be a turning point in Travis’ songwriting career; “Birmingham,” a tale about discovering freedom in having nowhere to turn; and “Explanations,” which are hard to come by when you’ve used them all.

Sin List is a truly independent EP containing timeless songs that could just as easily have been released 40 years ago as today. So crack a beer, kick on the Hi-Fi and study up on your Sin List!
