Travis John (Small Brown Bike) readies solo full-length, plays shows (2013)

During the Summer of 2012, Travis John of Small Brown Bike recorded “Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall” at his in-house studio, The Study. This three song EP was digitally released on November 13 by john’s own Old Point Light Records. Sixteen years of gathering material, writing and waiting patiently to release his first full length, he released a split B-Sides record, “The 12 Laborers”, with his side band Leave Let Be on January 15 2013. Weeding out the demos, Travis went back into The Study in February of 2013 to start recording his first full length August Woods, but while he was going through tracks he came across a record he began recording in 2009 from his side project, Leave Let Be, but had never finished. This batch of songs, dubbed Blood & Water, will be released simultaneously with August Woods this fall.
John’s upcoming solo albums follow the recently released Small Brown Bike collections album, titled Recollected, released this past spring on Old Point Light, and will be supported by upcoming live appearances on on July 19, as well as a recently confirmed in-store appearance at Chicago’s Rekless Records, where John will perform music from both Small Brown Bike as well as his solo material (full details below).
Friday, July 19th (1:30pm Eastern) Live on
Saturday, July 20th (2:00pm Central) Live at Rekless Records Wicker Park Store Chicago, IL
