“Up Ahead” – New Music from Travis Linville

Oklahoma’s Travis Linville has been everywhere from dive bars and classrooms to “The Tonight Show” and esteemed theaters and festivals across the globe. Best known for his work as a sideman with Hayes Carll, Linville takes center stage to release his new full length, Up Ahead, out February 3rd.

According to Linville, the album’s easy-going title track began as a boring joke but became a meditative analysis of perspective. “Sometimes you can look around and see trouble and hardship brewing all around you and realize to yourself that where you are is a pretty good place,” he says. “Maybe sit out an inning or two and reset”

Independently, Linville has sold 15,000 albums and played thousands of shows across his 20-plus year career, with an ever-evolving repertoire deeply rooted in songcraft, sly humor and subtlety. Recent tours include national runs with Parker Millsap and several international dates as a support and band member for Carll. 

As for what lies Up Ahead, Linville is pragmatic: “I’m maybe prouder of these new 
songs than anything I’ve done, and I just want to get them out to as many people as I can.”
