Hello Travis and thank you for joining us at BuzzMusic. How would you describe the creative process of writing and recording your own holiday-inspired single?
I started writing this song a couple of years ago and just finished a few months ago. I just kept getting distracted with other projects, other songs, other shows, several things. Then the Covid pandemic hit and I had plenty of time to finish many unfinished songs. I love Holiday music and I love writing it. With the uncertainty, anxiety, and troubled state of the world right now, I wanted to record a song to take people away from their worries. This song talks about forgetting all the stress that is on us at this time of year, packing a bag, and running off to the islands to celebrate the big day. It’s packed full of my major influences too. I say it’s like 60’s pop meets doo-wop meets Nashville and they all got to Hawaii for Christmas! I also got to work with my good friend Grammy-nominated artist Frankie Moreno. He produced my debut album “HERE’S TRAVIS CLOER” last year and knocked this track out of the park. It’s fun, upbeat, catchy, and will make you want to hit repeat!
What was the most rewarding aspect of creating "Holiday With Me?"
Like I said, I wanted to give people something to take away the weight of reality right now. How nice would it be to run away to a beach, not worry about anything and pop open a bottle of pineapple wine to celebrate Christmas? Musically, I loved recording the harmony vocals on this tune. I’m a huge fan of vocal jazz and doo-wop. That's pretty evident in all my music but it’s on full display on “HOLIDAY WITH ME”.
What were you hoping your audience would receive throughout the duration of "Holiday With Me?"
I want listeners to feel good! I classify all of my music as “feel-good music”. I believe there is a power in music that can touch a listener’s soul in a very intimate way. That is why I do what I do. With “HOLIDAY WITH ME”, I want people to smile, sing along, to dance, and tell their friends how great they feel when they listen to it.
Are you planning on releasing any further holiday singles throughout the upcoming holiday season?
I don’t have any releases lined up. I do have another Holiday record I recorded a few years ago called “Christmas at My Place” that people can find online. I’ll also be releasing a video for “HOLIDAY WITH ME” in December. Who knows though, I might just get in a mood one night and record something else to get my fans and listeners in the spirit of the Season. What has been keeping you inspired throughout 2020?
This has been an incredibly tough year for us all. Artists especially have been impacted in a way we’ve never seen. I’ve reached deep to find a part of me that I didn’t know was there both in my art and my personal life. With all of us being forced to have nothing but an online presence, I’ve found peace in writing original material as well as recording covers and making videos of the songs and posting them on my YouTube page. I must say that my video production skills have made a major leap in the last few months. My wife and kids have been a major inspiration to me. I want to make them proud of what I do and how I handle situations. I guess at the end of the day, I’m not truly happy unless I’m involved with music and entertaining. Since we’ve been forced off stage, recording songs like “HOLIDAY WITH ME” is what keeps me going, inspired, and looking to better days when we can be on stage again in front of live audiences making that soul connection.
