Kurt Travis Is Making Life Easy Peasy


Kurt Travis announces solo record, There's A Place I Want To Take You

Life is about to get a little easier as Kurt Travis is thrilled to announce his brand new solo record, There's A Place I Want To Take You, out May 17th via Esque Records and Blue Swan Records. Fans can pre-order the album at www.esquerecords.com.



According to Kurt Travis,

"This song is one of my favorites on the album. It's very playful and light hearted," shares Travis. "The song is about how I don't like waking up in the morning, and also, how I have hard time falling asleep." He continues: "I called it 'Easy Peasy' because the song is repetitious and the structure is simple, but while tracking guitars for it, was actually quite difficult to record."



Kurt Travis is a singer, songwriter, and musician from Sacramento, California. He is best known as the former lead vocalist for the post-hardcore bands Dance Gavin Dance and A Lot Like Birds.
