Emerging Artist of the week: Travelers

One of my absolute favorite up and coming indie bands is an incredibly harmonious group of songwriters from Los Angeles named Travelers. The band consists of long time friends Aidin Sadeghi (Guitar), Bret Leinen (Bass), and Young The Giant members Eric Cannata (Guitar), and Francois Comtois (Drums). Each member is uniquely talented in a variety of lead vocal performances, group harmonies, rotating instrumentation and collaborative songwriting. Travelers draws influences from artists like Broken Social Scene, Spoon, and Bob Dylan mixing lyrically driven folk songwriting and indie rock instrumentation.

On ‘Sleeptalking’, the band’s forthcoming debut album songs range from sparse acoustic arrangements as heard in ‘Pope John Paul‘ or ‘Walking On My Hands‘, to full band compositions like ‘Something I Said‘ or ‘My Fault‘. The latter two songs were released March 2015 on Spotify, and Soundcloud. Throughout the record there are themes of family, heartache, death, and the guilt of loosing focus on what’s really important. Here’s a free stream from their soundcloud below.

 

 

Earlier this year, Travelers did a live acoustic In The Open session with one of my favorite cinematographers from Los Angeles named Alex Shahmiri. His whole concept behind the project is to take artists literally out into the open nature, completely out of their usual element, and showcase their raw unique talent while capturing the magic with beautifully filmed scenic backdrops. Past sessions have included artists like Young The Giant, Bad Suns, Vance Joy, and Two Door Cinema Club just to name a few. Check out their live take on “My Fault” in the video below:
