Travers Brothership
Twin brothers Eric and Kyle Travers have been making music and stunning audiences since they started playing music together at 7 years old. 

In 2012 the brothers formed their latest project, Travers Brothership, a Soul/Funk/Rock/Jam ensemble based out of Asheville, NC with Ian McIsaac on keys and percussion. 

There is a reason Travers Brothership stands out among most acts on the scene today, they care to make each concert a unique and unforgettable experience. Utilizing the band's unmatched live energy, instrumental prowess, and 3-part harmonies; they create a live atmosphere that transforms an audience into a community. A Travers Brothership concert is best described as a wild block party, and this is a party you don't wanna miss.

Following the success of the "I Don't Mind EP" the band began touring nationally in 2013 and has since performed 400+ concerts across the United States. The band has shared the stage with many accomplished acts such as: Charles Bradley, Taj Mahal, Moe, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Blues Traveler, Robert Randolph, Leftover Salmon, Trombone Shorty, The Marcus King Band, Dr. John, and many more.
In 2014, Josh Clark (Bass & Vocals) climbed aboard Travers Brothership. This lineup change finalized the current roster of the band, enabling them to perform the 3-part harmonies that define their current sound.

Over the course of two national tours the band began work with Grammy award winning producer, Juan "Pericles" Covaz, and Grammy nominated engineer, Matt Williams. Following recording sessions at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL and The Eagle Room in Asheville, NC the band's first album "A Way To Survive" was complete.

"A Way To Survive" was released in 2016 to critical acclaim and outstanding reviews. The album has won numerous awards including "Best Studio Album of 2016" at Homegrown Music Network, and has received airplay on radio stations throughout the U.S. and beyond.
Travers Brothership just completed work on their sophomore LP, “Let The World Decide” and it is due out on December 8th 2018.
In January of 2019 the band will embark on their first tour of Europe, and then return to the US to tour in support of “Let The World Decide” for the remainder of 2019.
Trauma Cat
Sometime between the advent of the power trio and the wheezy expiry of Planet Earth, a yowling Trauma Cat burst from the Maw of Hell to yowl, in the fashion of yowling, a brand new yowl that no other yowler had yowled before. Our Cat, Reader, was triggered. It needed release. And so it turned, claws and all, to music—that twinkly, age-old pastime of dejected amateur mathematicians and aimless, shoeless, pencil-biting cuckolds.
Soon, the Cat discovered melody; harmony; rhythm; ego. In a feat of the primordial DIY ethos, it converted its Satanic litter box into a crude and frankly embarrassing guitar machine, strung up with fraying yarn and adorned with unnecessary, extremely distracting jingle bells. Then, Reader, the Cat played, and it sucked. 
Today, we honor what the Trauma Cat could have done had it done what it wanted to be done. We call this endeavor “Trauma Cat.”
