Travis Garland Biography
Fast forward to a few years later, and NLT was signed to a major label deal working under the direction of Geffen Records Chairman Ron Fair. With Travis as the frontman & one of the lead singers, NLT was put in the studio to collaborate with top producers & songwriters including Pharrell, Ne-Yo & Ryan Tedder. The group opened on tour for The Pussycat Dolls and gained a small, but loyal, fan following. In 2007 NLT released their Timbaland-produced single "She Said, I Said" and scored themselves their first Top 40 Hit. They continued to tour, and caused a female fan girl frenzy headlining a national House of Blues tour aptly titled "Bandemonium". When the group eventually parted ways to pursue individual opportunities Travis shifted his focus back to songwriting, only this time for a solo album.
Currently, Garland is back in the studio recording his as-yet-untitled debut album for Interscope Records under the familiar direction of Fair. To give him a unique urban pop sound, visionary producer Nate "Danja" Hills (Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado, Britney Spears) has signed on to produce the record. Garland will be writing or co-writing the majority of the album's tracks himself.
Travis’ debut is slated for release later this year but first single “Believe” is about to take over the airwaves. With a strong team of collaborators behind him, and the endorsement of Perez Hilton himself, Garland hopes to come out with a bang and make a lasting impression on the music business in 2010.
