With the highly anticipated follow up to his #1 Country album ‘Wired’ (2015), which included two #1 country airplay singles; Travis Collins is set to shine brighter than ever in 2016 with his new album ‘Hard Light.’
‘Hard Light’ moves everything up a gear, with Travis himself digging deeper than ever before – not only with his vocal abilities, but also as a musician and most notably here, a songwriter.
A captivating and refreshingly real collection of songs that show the HARD side of sharing personal struggles but also the LIGHT in embracing them to produce incredible strength and character.
The lead single, ‘Just Another Girl’, is the first tease into the talents of Travis Collins and the honesty of ‘HARD LIGHT’. The single explores love lost and the girl that got away.
Recorded and self-produced at the legendary Rancom Street Studio in Botany NSW (Lee Kernaghan, Adam Brand, Sara Storer), ‘Hard Light’ is an album that’s unapologetically country, unashamedly Australian and relatable to people from all walks of life.
“I’m so proud of this album. For the first time in my career I’m comfortable sharing my story, scratches and all. It’s taken all my life so far to realise, and accept, that ‘my’ stories also belong to other people. Having written 12 of these 14 new tracks, they are pages torn straight from the book of my life… They’re honest, raw, authentic and unfiltered” explains Travis.
2016 has already seen Travis Collins nominated for the CMC awards and Golden Guitars, the latter of which he hosted alongside Sam McClymont. Recently a part of the country super group, Adam Brand and the Outlaws, and a sweeping national tour of almost 40 dates, Travis continues to impress audiences and listeners nationally and cement his reputation as a powerhouse artist with an ever-growing presence in the Australian music industry.
