"Every once in awhile,there comes a singer-songwriter who stands above the rest. Americana artist Travis Cooper is one of those.Following in the footsteps such as Jim Lauderdale and Townes Van Zandt, Cooper is the thinking man's songwriter.You won't hear any trite formula or novelty songs on either one of his CD's. He is a man with a message and delivers it moving easily from alt-country to gospel inflected tunes. Check out his work,you won't be disappointed."
Eileen Sisk,Author of Buck Owens: The Biography and Honky Tonks: Guide To County Dancin' and Romancin'
"Travis Cooper's music has the sound of red dirt and green hills,its both dirty and sweet. I can't wait to see what he does next."
Dr. Kent Gustavson,Author of Blind But Now I See-The Biography of Music Legend Doc Watson
"Travis- I want you to know that I believe what I'm about to say and thats why I'm saying it...any songwriter that you/we admire would be proud to have written any of the songs on this new album of yours. I truly love it and I'm inspired by it. Great,great job."
Luke Peacock- Songwriter
"Listening to Travis's new album is really refreshing,kind of like a Lyle Lovett emerging in Nashville for the present time.Very tasteful and clean acoustic guitar playing, with lyrics that tell a story from the heart."
Jason Fletcher - Jace Aaron and the Ranchers
"We've been fortunate to have Travis grace us with several in store appearances.Our crowd is a blend of locals and visiting tourists. However,I've noticed regardless of who's in that day,everyone stops and pays attention to Travis's tunes.Although I hear a few classics during his set from Steve Earle and John Prine,his originals are the ones I leave with."
Lauren Wray- Antique Archeology (American Pickers Store)
"With Drifters and Dreamers,Travis has discovered that proverbial fine line between artistic integrity and commercial viability. With obvious influences from the likes of Guy Clark,Doc Watson,Tony Rice and Steve Earle, his style is uniquely his own."
Sonny Steiner- Sonny Steiner and the Puppeteers
Here's what fellow artists had to say about Travis's first record 'portage'....
"Travis Cooper brings a new fresh sound to the music table. He has an unblemished new style that fills the gap for many listeners falling between hard-driving alt-country music and bluegrass. He proudly possesses an all-original album of which the multi-talented artist wrote, produced, sang, and played guitar. Every cut is written from the heart, and holds a unique sound and story. I was very honored to be a part of Travis' project and I personally wish the inspired and hard working artist the very best."
"Travis Cooper is an artist cut from the writing styles of Texas songwriters like Guy Clark to Townes Van Zandt. With a new fresh edge, great guitar playing and a voice that cuts, he gives his songwriting a foundation to build a great performance upon. Its evident in his new CD. I was a fan even before I heard it. Look out for Travis and make sure you go see him, you'll be a fan too."
Ritchie Owens & The Farm Bureau
"I enjoyed playing on Travis's album…I respect his traditional, raw approach to his music…Along the lines of Waylon and Willie."
