Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

'The Coyote & The Crow' is the brand new studio album by The Brian Travis Band. Filled with personal lyrics, melodic hooks, and soaring choruses, the eloquent acoustic material along with the harder rocking material co-exist brilliantly rising and falling in all the right places on their sixth full length effort. Highlights on the new album include the Fleetwood Mac-esque 'Howl,' the hypnotic 'All These Lovely Things' the mid tempo ballad 'Make Believe II,' and the barnstorming album closer, 'Taney County Town'. The Coyote & The Crow was released on Feb 16th, 2013. The record was produced by George Landress and two songs, 'Howl' & 'Evaporate' were co-written by Travis & Landress for this collection. Travis sets his sights on expressing the grief of lost love, betrayal and the journey of the heart from darkness back to strength. There are thematic repetitive images that pop up throughout the album creating a cohesiveness to the work that make a 'from start to finish' listening a treat. Here are what people have been saying about The Coyote & The Crow: 'Brian Travis makes music that speaks to the soul....it speaks of life, pain, hope, redemption, He doesn't make crap that talks about partying on Friday...his lyrics are deep, and the music is soulful and addictive. The BTB touch peoples souls as good art should.' - Joshua Davis 'Started 2013 off by listening to The Coyote and the Crow by the Brian Travis Band. I am awestruck. I'm speechless. It sounds as if The BTB have stepped into every truly broken heart, took measurements and turned it into sound. The guitar work is phenomenal and Brian's voice has really matured into a pretty powerful instrument. The Coyote & The Crow is a very strong lineup of songs from a band that has been releasing great music consistently for over 10 years. The music and lyrics of the BTB feed my soul and The Brian Travis Band are now my all time favorite band.' -- Kender MacGowan 'So far I love this album as a whole, as a body of work, listening from start to finish it hangs so well together, rising and falling in all the right places. Today I am feeling the song 'Evaporate'' -- Richard Evans 'I see Brian Travis growing as an artist, finding his voice and singing his truth. It is in truth that art reveals itself. Brian follows his heart, even if it hurts, and he has a gift. I hate to put new artists in a box when describing them, because the Brian Travis Band clearly sound like their own thing, but as I have never seen them perform live I am limited to making comparisons from the recorded material I've heard. It would appear that their 'sound' has grown from something Neil Young-ish to more Michael Stipe meets Fleetwood Mac. It is a sound that fits well for this group! Carry on Brian Travis Band!' -- David Domanski 'I've always believed that this band is bound for the Grammys, and after hearing The Coyote & The Crow I am certain that it won't be much longer before I am tuning in to see them accepting 'best new artist'. The new album is awesome and it really rocks!' -- Janice Miller 'Talent springs forth out of the beautiful struggles of Brian Travis' soul, and is matched, note for note, by extraordinary musicianship. This is not just soundtrack worthy thought candy -- The music perfectly emphasizes, dances, and twirls around the heartfelt universal themes and stories of the poet. If you like words that paint pictures in your mind, and music that frames and vibrantly colors the narrative, this album will be one of your favorites forever.' -- Danny Quisenbury, 'Love the new BTB CD! I just got to listen to it with my headphones.....boy....I gotta great feeling for The Brian Travis Band this coming year....Piping hot man!!!!!' -- Heather Epper 'I LOVE the album!' -- Barbara Wilder 'Listened to The new BTB album and loved it! They are truly amazing. The songs sound great! I bet watching them performing the new songs live would be epic.' -- Lauren Ashley Sanchez 'I've listened to the album twice and overall it's really really good stuff. I love the writing. Really creative. 'Howl' and 'All These Lovely Things' really stood out to me. Really super catchy...delicious pop music. I love the whole album. Thematically it has a cohesion to it, it's got themes that run through it and the production is impeccable. Everything sounded great and really tasty guitar work and just great writing..really great writing. I think The Brian Travis Brian has that REM vibe and I think they are every bit as good as those guys. I'm planning to listen to the album some more and dig into it further, but I really really like it and I think it's great stuff and I think you guys are going to have a lot of success with it. That is my initial take from a few listenings and I definitely want to listen some more because I really like it. You guys should feel really great about the project, you should feel really good about it' -- Bill Burnett.
