Travis Hatcher

Travis Hatcher is a multi-instrumantalist currently based in Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia. Hailing originally from Labrador, Travis Hatcher is a folk/rock musician with roots in Newfoundland and an eclectic musical taste giving him a unique approach to his song writing.

Travis' music has been positively received from both fans and reviewers alike. Travis' passionate vocal delivery is a staple in his performance and his lyrics show an innate ability for story telling - whether fiction or non. Travis' songs are designed to ensnare the imagination and stir your emotions.

Travis released “Pieces” in August 2018 and it is an important marker in his solo career. “Pieces” comprises songs which have been written, performed solo and with bands, in the time between 2011 after his last release (“Pretty Fire”) and the recording of “Pieces”. “Pieces” is an audio reminder of the journey of many miles in the past 7-8 years of his life.

While Travis lends his hands and ears to other projects in varying capacities, he always keeps and eye and ear out for projects which he can lend his abilities to, making him self available for stand-ins with other local bands, as well as studio work and recording services.

 Travis not only writes and performs his own material, he travels the maritimes and plays favourites from yesterday and today.

Travis' goal is to offer a show that has something for everyone. He plays music in a variety of genres: country, classic rock, modern rock, traditional Irish, maritime, and blues. The artists in my repertoire include Del Shannon, Johnny Cash, Blue Rodeo, Tom Petty, The Beatles, and many more.

"[S]olid song writing, guitar playing and vocals, it [Pretty Fire] makes for a quality record that delivers a soothing sound from start to finish" -Tyler Steward,NxEW.ca
