they are a fabulous band from Scotland. By far one of the best (most fun/funnest) live bands I have ever seen. Except the last show I saw...but I blame that on the sucky crowd.

I really like em. Yes.

I have one of their albums, but not really into them that much.

Methinks I need to see them live...

I may be way off here, but I would describe Travis as mellow, beautiful rock music. And I mean mellow in the best way possible, as in, no screaming or vicious guitars. Just straightforward rock, lovely vocals, and solid lyrics. They have certainly grown on me, and I just picked up their latest album. I'm really enjoying it, and I like them more and more with every new song I hear. You should check them out if you have a chance.

They are a great Scottish Band! Liked them even more after seeing them live!



Fran is very sweet

Some of their best songs are:

Happy
Driftwood
Why Does It Always Rain On Me
Turn
Writing To Reach You
Flowers In The Window
Sing
Side
Pipe Dreams
Beautiful Occupaion
Coming Around
Re-Offender

You need to watch the video to SING! (especially the live version on TOTP's Brilliant Food Fight, It's Very Funny!!!)

Their songs are beautiful. Fran Healy has an amazing voice. They are extremely mellow, but in a good way.
