Adam Travis is a songwriter and performer currently living in Brooklyn, NY. Adam has always had the dream of creating music that is unique, powerful, and straight from the heart. His constant mindset is optimistic and he approaches all of the ups and downs of life as a chance to learn and grow. He believes in having an open mind to every style of music and mixes a wide range of genres into his songwriting. Influences from artists like Bob Marley, Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, and Zac Brown have made Adam the writer and musician that he is today.
Adam's heart, soul, and performing roots can be found in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Thanks to middle school jazz band, high school marching band, weekly open mics, and garage rock bands, Adam realized that pursuing a career in music was the only route to go. Along the way, he learned to play saxophone, bass, drums, guitar, and piano. Growing up, his parents were divorced, but each house was always filled with music. His father would blast the Grateful Dead as he did yard work around the house, while his mother would come home from work to play piano and give Adam lessons. Both parents gave him an infinite amount of love and attention, but going back and forth between homes took it's toll on Adam. At times, it was hard to find something constant to comfort him. Songwriting became his balance. No matter what house he was at, you could find Adam sitting in the basement with a pen, a piece of paper, and his guitar, singing and smiling.
The summer of 2015 was the first time that Adam went on a full east coat tour with "The Soul." The adventure started with a sold out show in his hometown of Doylestown, PA at his favorite venue, Puck. After that, Adam loaded up his SUV with instruments and band mates and traveled to New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Vermont, Delaware, and Maryland. After graduating from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor's Degree in songwriting, he felt it was time to take his skills and experience to the city of opportunity. This big decision came easy when his band mates and best friends were doing the same and he was accepted to an internship in music publishing. Upon arriving in Brooklyn, one of the first things Adam did was head into the studio to record his third record, "What This Love Can Be EP." The album features four brand new originals to be released in the winter of 2016.
