My name's Travis Bishop. I'm a Country Music singer from Kentucky. I live in Texas right now and I love it there. My music right now is all acoustic, but I've started a band out here in Iraq, 'Dodge City South,' and once we get back to Tx we're going to be playing hard. So stay and listen and be sure to tell me what you think of the songs! Thanks for listening! -Trav
I've been singing all my life. I started playing guitar and writing songs in high school, then I joined the Army a little after that. I've been playing live to people since the whole thing began, and the largest crowd I've played to was about 700.
I play live acoustic sets whenever I can. I love playing and I'l even play for free. I love music.
So I'm supposed to talk about my influences, but I can't put all that onto just one list. There are so many bands and singers that I listen to and the list grows every day. I can tell you that until I was about 12, all I listened to were bands like The Beatles, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, you know, the music of my parents. :) Then I discovered Country Music, and everything just exploded from there. I love Country. It speaks to me in so many different and new and exciting ways. My only hope in all this mess is that maybe one or two of my songs might affect others in the same way one day. I love writing music, and if I ever had to stop I'd probably die. I can't sit down and choose to write everyday like some songwriters, though. I only write when I feel inspired to, or a cool idea gets me going. So, sometimes it's slow goings with new material, but the hope is that all that will pay off. I've gotten great reaction from the music I've put out so far, and I can't wait to put out more. Thanks for listening!
