TRAVIS JONES; Lead Vocals, Background Vocals, Acoustic and Electric guitars

Travis’ musical background and history reads like a William Faulkner novel. He began singing gospel music at age four with his mother Lottie Mae Adams, a blues singer who recorded several discs on Paula Records. Travis became known not only for his vocal abilities but also for his telling of old testament bible stories at revivals and tent meetings all across the south. He started his first group at sixteen – a Paul Revere and the Raiders tribute band. Travis served 6 years in the US Army; he was stationed in Europe where he performed with the soul and funk band Smoke, which eventually became the back up band for the famous R&B group The Manhattans (“Let’s Just Kiss and Say Goodbye”) during their 1978 European tour. Upon leaving the armed forces, Europe, and Smoke, Travis made his way to Sonora California. There, he started several groups -among them, Yukon, Too Close for Comfort, The Sonora All Star Rock Rhythm and Blues Revue and Travis Jones and the New Frontier. He has also spent considerable time in live theater productions - most notably, Lost Highway- the Legend and Music of Hank Williams, where he played the part of Hank Williams and was Musical Director. Jesus Christ Superstar, Vocal Director and played the part of Jesus. Pump Boys and Dinettes, 3 Penny Opera, The Miss Firecracker Contest, Smoke on the Mountain, and The Grapes of Wrath where he composed an original musical score.

During his time in California, he has performed with a wide array of artists. He’s shared the stage with Asleep at the Wheel and Waylon Jennings – Night Ranger and the Doobie Brothers - John Hartford and Levon Helm, just to name a few. Travis has been the opening act (with Houston Jones) for Rodney Crowell, Michael Martin Murphy, Maria Muldaur, The Infamous Stringdusters and The Green Cards. He has recorded with various artists, as well as releasing two self titled albums – “Lost Highway, The Legendary Music of Hank Williams” and “Dance All Night” – along with seven CD releases with Houston Jones.
