Biography

Travis McKeveny grew up in an decidedly musical household on Blue Point, Long Island, with a father who was a professional guitarist/singer-songwriter. The sounds of such artists as Van Morrison, John Hiatt, Jackson Browne and John Gorka were omnipresent. He had always toyed with the idea of tunesmithing, and began to do so in earnest roughly two and a half years ago. His literate and carefully wrought songs successfully fuse "storytelling and poetry," according to vaunted Upstate New York folksinger Fred Gillen, Jr., placing him "in the tradition of the great ballad singers." He has opened for such nationally-touring acts as Chuck Prophet, formerly of Green on Red, and Todd Sheaffer, of Railroad Earth fame.
