Twin brothers Eric and Kyle Travers have been making music and stunning audiences since they first began performing together at 13 years old.
In 2012 the twin brothers formed their latest project, Travers Brothership, an Alternative, Soul, and Funk ensemble based out of Asheville, NC.
It is safe to say The Brothership stands out amongst most acts climbing the charts in the U.S. today. Why do they stand out so boldly amongst the others? They care to make each concert a unique and unforgettable experience. Utilizing the band’s unmatched live energy and superior songwriting, they create a live atmosphere that transforms an audience into a community. A Travers Brothership concert is best described as a wild block party, and this is a party you don’t wanna miss.
Following the success of the ‘I Don’t Mind EP’ the band began touring nationally in 2013 and has since performed 400+ concerts across the United States. The band has shared the stage with many accomplished acts such as: Charles Bradley, Taj Mahal, String Cheese Incident, Blues Traveler, The Marcus King Band, Robert Randolph, Leftover Salmon, Trombone Shorty, Rebirth Brass Band, Dr. John, and many more.
Over the course of two national tours the band began work with Grammy award winning producer, Juan ‘Pericles’ Covaz, and Grammy nominated engineer, Matt Williams. Following recording sessions at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL and The Eagle Room in Asheville, NC the band’s first album ‘A Way To Survive’ was complete.
‘A Way To Survive’ was released in 2016 to critical acclaim and outstanding reviews. The album has won numerous awards including ‘Best Studio Album of 2016’ at Homegrown Music Network, and has received airplay on radio stations throughout the U.S. and beyond.
Following the success of their first record, the band was voted ‘Best Alternative Band of 2016’ by the readers of Asheville’s Mountain Xpress, confirming the bands status as a staple of the Southeast music scene.
Travers Brothership is currently touring the U.S. in support of ‘A Way To Survive’ and writing songs for their highly anticipated sophomore release.
‘There are hundreds of great bands aiming for the major leagues, but few of them bring such a complete package as Travers Brothership. In this horse race, I’ve found where I’m putting my money.’ – Brian Swenk, Homegrown Music Network
Delivering vocals and keyboard is our leading lady, DownTown Abby, Abby Bryant. Laying down the groove are The Echoes with Bailey Faulkner (guitar), Logan Hall (bass), and Steven Cornacchia (drums).
DTA & The Echoes formed in the summer of 2016 in the mountains of North Carolina, taking influence from the work of the Tedeschi Trucks Band and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals among many titans of southern soul and Mo-town. Over a year later, the band relocated to Charlotte to bring its fresh take on soul to an ever-growing fan base. With performances at regional festivals and some of NC’s most popular music venues under its belt, DownTown Abby & The Echoes has never been more focused on its mission to bring funky, dance-inducing original tunes to the places you most love to hear music.
The band’s EP, Leavin’ You, brings the energy of a live DTA show to the web, encouraging everyone to hear the exciting new directions modern soul rock is headed.
With powerful vocals and a groovy rhythm section, DownTown Abby & The Echoes is a must-see for all ages and musical preferences.
