The Alternative Is... | Travis Shettel After the Encore

    • Music

Travis has been playing music for about 30 years. Piano lessons started at 6 until the instrument became uncool at the age of 11. Then it was classical guitar, which wasn’t loud enough. Then it was bass, which was fun for a while, but proved to be difficult to use as a writing instrument. Finally, Travis found his way to the electric guitar (keys have been given a second chance) and the creation of hundreds of songs since the mid 90’s.

He is probably most well known for his time as lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter of the Boston-based band, Piebald. Started in 1994, PIebald released 5 albums, and toured constantly until the “last shows” in 2008.  - http://www.masqueradeatlanta.com/attraction/travis-shettel-piebald/

I was stoked to get the opportunity to interview Travis for this podcast. The Alt music scene in the mid-00's really shaped my perspective of my youth and my worldview overall. Several of these songs are still anthems for me after all these years. Travis and I dig into all that and more!

In After the Encore Volume 7: The Alternative Is... We explore the world of music through the lens of the artists who helped shape a musical revolution for so many. What lessons still resonate today, and what has changed in the near twenty years since then? 

Tune in to find out how these artists answer the questions essential to the essence of the podcast:

1. What does music mean to you?

2. How do you quantify success?

3. And what happens after the music fades?

Be sure to catch Piebald's upcoming tour dates:

12/15 - Lancaster, PA
12/16 - Northampton, MA
12/17 - Portsmouth, NH
