Take one listen to North Carolina native, Travis Shallow’s work and it is no wonder that he has amassed fans from his opening spots with legendary Gregg Allman, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, The Marcus King Band, Jerry Joseph, Todd Snider, and fellow native North Carolina band, American Aquarium.
Travis Shallow is an American singer-songwriter, musician, and recording artist.
Shallow started his career as a solo artist in 2002 playing every dive bar and club that would book him. He quickly developed a loyal following which allowed him to further explore the thriving North Carolina music scene. Soon after, he formed the alternative country band, A Few Good Liars, with whom he recorded a studio album in 2011 titled, Battered Wooden Body, at Tweed Recording Studio in Oxford, MS.
In 2012, Shallow left A Few Good Liars and started writing and recording songs that would later be released as his first solo self-titled album, Travis Shallow, to regional critical acclaim in the southeastern United States.
Shallow went back to Tweed Recording Studio with Andrew Ratcliffe engineering to record his solo debut album. This solo album was acoustically driven with an accompanying band to highlight the songwriting and lyrical prowess.
After the release of his self-titled album in March 2016, Shallow took the show to the people performing intimate shows, stripped down with him and an acoustic guitar. While doing so, Shallow wrote a new batch of songs that was miles away from another solo acoustic album and set out to put together a backing band for the studio sessions. He reached out to longtime friends and trusted heavy hitters whose familiar chemistry quickly turned into his full-time road band, The Deep End. The result was clear and titled- The Great Divide.
The Great Divide was featured in Relix Magazine and the single “River That Sings” made it’s radio debut on the Americana Charts.
Shallow has now stripped down the musician line up and returned back to his acoustic roots. He often plays with Bob Russell accompanying on guitar and (before the pandemic) playing intimate seated listening rooms where the song itself is king. “Let It Pass” is out now on Cavity Search Records and a studio album is scheduled for release in the fall.
