060 – Soundmind: Travis Larson Band

July 15, 2012 | By | Add a Comment

Travis Larson joins MLR producer Josh Almond to talk about his instrumental fusion rock group, the Travis Larson Band. Think of a musical stew mixing a thick brown Rush gravy with big hearty chunks of Steve Morse and a dash of Jeff Beck. Comprised of Travis Larson (guitar), Jennifer Young (bass), and Dale Moon (drums), TLB’s complicated phrasing, impossible timing, and seamless flow cause some to suspect that the band must surely operate from only one, albeit enormous, brain.   Travis talks about his influences and how he got into music, shares a few road stories, talks about his tranquil abode and excellent studio, and his band’s recording and touring career.  We also listen to selected tracks from their latest album, Soundmind.
