With a growing string of hit albums, #1 songs, and a decade of winning fans all across the country under his belt, TRAVIS COLLINS continues to cement his footprint as a mainstay on the Australian music landscape. He is as well-known for his masterful guitar playing and powerhouse vocals as he is for his depth of song-writing and high energy live performances.
In 2016, Travis continued to go from strength to strength. His latest album ‘HARD LIGHT’ delivered a further two #1 singles to his impressive tally - the reflective ‘Just Another Girl’ and the haunting ‘Call Me Crazy’, whilst the album itself charted in the ARIA top 20 all-genre albums chart.
‘Hard Light’ moves everything up a gear, with Travis himself digging deeper than ever before - not only with his vocal abilities, but also as a musician and most notably here, a songwriter.
Recorded and self-produced at the legendary Rancom Street Studio in Botany NSW (Lee Kernaghan, Adam Brand, Sara Storer), ‘Hard Light’ is an album that’s unapologetically country, unashamedly Australian and relatable to people from all walks of life.
"I'm so proud of this album. For the first time in my career I'm comfortable sharing my story, scratches and all. It's taken all my life so far to realise, and accept, that 'my' stories also belong to other people. Having written 12 of these 14 new tracks, they are pages torn straight from the book of my life… They're honest, raw, authentic and unfiltered” explains Travis.
2016 saw Travis Collins nominated for the CMC awards and Golden Guitars, the latter of which he hosted alongside Sam McClymont. Recently a part of the country super group, Adam Brand and the Outlaws, and a sweeping national tour of almost 40 dates, Travis continues to impress audiences and listeners nationally and cement his reputation as a powerhouse artist with an ever-growing presence in the Australian music industry.
