Travis’ solo piano recording debut: Winter in New Hampshire

Leave a comment

Exciting news! I’m pleased to announce that I can now post music on my blog.  I am, after all, a musician (in case you haven’t figured that out by now!).  My hope is that I’ll be able to share recordings of my work that might otherwise go unheard (that whole tree falling in the woods thing). 

So to kick everything off, here’s a recent addition to the vault – a true rarity – the first ever recording of me playing solo piano:

Winter in New Hampshire 

This was recorded back in November when I was in the studio recording the demo for the Calvosa-Sullivan Project.  We had some time at the end of the session, and Kat suggested that I take a few minutes to record this piece – an original composition of mine called “Winter in New Hampshire.” It’s a little bit of a cumbersome title by my standards, but I feel like this piece is evocative of a peaceful cold snowy day in my native “homeland.” 

Thanks for listening!
