Travers Brothership
Travers Brothership
Songwriters. Singers. Multi-instrumentalists. Brothers. At only 25, twins Eric Travers and Kyle Travers have been writing songs and stunning live audiences for well over half their lifetime. Presenting a soulful, bluesy, taste of rock n’ roll spun in psychedelic jam, Travers Brothership; also including singer/bassist/songwriter, Josh Clark, and keyboardist/songwriter/percussionist, Ian McIsaac, create a fierce and balanced team, strengthened by the 12 years they’ve spent together on and off the road.

The band first met in 2007 on a school bus in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Soon after the twins were invited by Josh and Ian to get off at their bus stop for a jam in a garage, little did they know this was history in the making. After numerous jams and a few lessons from Eric and Kyle’s father (and veteran touring musician) “Hurricane” Bob Travers, Travers Brothership was formed in 2012.

With over 400+ shows across the United States and Europe under their belts, the band has become a well oiled machine, performing alongside acts such as; Gov’t Mule, Taj Mahal, Moe., Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Blues Traveler, Charles Bradley, Leftover Salmon,The Marcus King Band, Dr. John, and many more.

Travers Brothership are consummate musicians and live music aficionados with a deep understanding of their preferred genres. Utilizing the band's unmatched live energy, they create a concert atmosphere that transforms an audience into a community and their enthusiasm, gusto, and talents carry the day. In 2018 Travers Brothership brought their instrumental prowess and tasteful songwriting to Echo Mountain Recording Studios in their hometown of Asheville, NC, where they recorded their latest album “Let The World Decide” adding to their already abundant catalog and setting a new bar for the band musically.
Ponder the Albatross
Ponder the Albatross
vAt length did cross an Albatross,
Thorough the fog it came...

Formed in the Front Range of Colorado, Ponder the Albatross plays a variety of different genres of original music with a little bit for everyone. They are an experimental Folk/Rock/Grass band with a variance of Fiddle, Drums, Bass, and Mandolin/Guitar depending on the song. Ponder the Albatross is a very original, and high energy band with original songs from reggae to trippy instrumental to folk/rock to bluegrass, and cover songs varying from "Queens of the Stone Age" to "Reggae Shark," that will keep the crowd up and having a good time - one of the best up-and-coming bands around.

Somewhere in the eternal vastness of space and time, somewhere upon a westward wind, there is a point where Gypsy Punk, Jam Band, and New Grass collide with cosmic force.
That point is Ponder the Albatross.
The “Ponder Phenomenon” is given its drive and force by Josh Bower’s ecstatic mandolin, guitar and vocals, Luke Lindholm’s searing fiddle; ably abetted by Eric Vrtis’ whisking wave of bass & vocals, and Will Schiesser’s symphonic symmetry on the drums.
Every song, every show, every performance, is masterfully executed with the frenetic abandon of a Dervish whirling in a swirling mystical haze that impels audiences to engage and become active participants in the shared experience.
Since the band’s formation in 2015, Ponder the Albatross has lived for the road, playing live throughout the US and the Rocky Mountains, steadily gaining ground and breadth with every step. Playing upbeat Rock/Gypsy/Grass and getting mountain bars and festivals up and dancing with a strong connection to the music, Ponder the Albatross is a Mountain Band, through and through. You can hear the inspiration of the road, the sea, and the trees in their words and from their instruments – Music that speaks to spirit of wanderlust, to the flight of the Albatross
