Last week I went to a songwriters conference in Los Angeles, and it was fantastic! I will have some new material to share with you in the next few weeks. Check out my shows at The Log Cabin Lounge in GR to hear all of them!
I'm excited to share that the release of my band's new album is going well! Back to Home, Deep Greens & Blues' debut album, is now available on iTunes and through our website. Want a copy of your own? You can order them through www.deepgreensmusic.com.
NOVEMBER UPDATE: Here is a video I've made for the Movember project:
I am participating in Movember this year, which is an initiative to raise awareness for prostate cancer and raise money for prostate cancer research. I have created an incentive for anyone that donates $20 or more to the campaign: I will write you a song! On any topic! Check out more details here: http://mobro.co/travisatkinson
Here's a fun video that really gets to the roots of my passion for music:
Thanks to everyone that came out to cheer us on at Festival during our performance! We're so grateful for you! We've got some exciting performances in Grand Rapids, Muskegon, and Holland! Check out our shows in the right column, or on our calendar page!
