Travis Ehrenstrom’s musical journey began in rural Central Oregon, where he honed his songwriting skills inspired by the likes of Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, Bill Withers, and Bob Dylan. From teaching himself to play guitar at age 14 to recording his first album at Santa Cruz’s Ridgetop Sound Studios, Travis wasted no time in developing himself as an artist.
Travis’s music has taken him across the country, opening for renowned acts like the Blind Boys of Alabama and performing at venues from the Santa Monica Pier Folk Festival to North Park University in Chicago. He toured nationally as a solo artist before joining Noah Gundersen and the Courage, with whom he opened for Josh Ritter and Kimya Dawson.
After taking time away from music, Travis returned in 2017 with a new six-piece band (TEB) and a fresh focus on a jam/fusion-style sound. Their debut album, Something on the Surface, was released to critical acclaim and named one of the year’s top releases by multiple media outlets.
Travis’s passion for Americana music and the folk tradition led him to team up with producer Casey Parnell in 2018 to record the Northwest Americana EP. And in 2019, he embarked on a creative arts project with his wife, “Our Creative States,” traveling across the United States and writing, recording, and releasing songs from every state they visited.
Travis Ehrenstrom’s latest album from TEB, “Hollinshead,” showcases his musical versatility and growth as an artist. Recorded and self-produced with his six-piece band, TEB, the album fuses rock, funk, jazz, and blues elements to create a wholly unique and captivating sound.
With “Hollinshead,” Travis Ehrenstrom has solidified his place as a boundary-pushing musician unafraid to experiment with new sounds and styles. The album is a testament to his growth as an artist and his unwavering commitment to creating compelling and innovative music.
