Katrina: What have you learned while touring?
Travis: How to rock. You know touring, (Good Charlotte) is a totally professional band so it’s awesome to watch them every night.
Katrina: Who would you like to tour or work with?
Travis: Anybody. I would love to tour with Blink, I think that would be awesome. There’s all kinds of bands. Anybody that would take us
really. As long as they’re along or similar kind of music.
Katrina: Who causes the most trouble in the group?
Travis: I would say Morgan hands down. He’s still new to the band so he’s unsure. Yeah Morgan for sure.
Katrina: How do you write your songs and where do you get your ideas from?
Travis: We’re actually just writing one in the van. Starts with an acoustic guitar and we just take it to the band and all four of us just hack
Katrina: What advice can you give to people wanting to create a band?
Travis: When you feel like quitting, don’t quit. Keep going. When someone tells you that you suck and that you should quit, tell them to
fuck off and keep playing.
Katrina: What’s your favorite song to perform?
Travis: I would say “Beautiful” just because everybody gets into it. It’s just a crowd-pleaser so that’s so much fun to be up there.
Katrina: What’s the nicest or craziest thing a fan has done for you?
Travis: We had this fan, she’s become a friend of ours, her and another guy in Winnipeg and they make us perogies and they bring it to
the bar. The craziest thing, one time this guy took off his fake leg and got us to sign it. It was the craziest thing in the world. Yeah that was
definitely the craziest.
Katrina: Who were your musical influences growing up and have they changed?
Travis: Yeah for sure. Growing up obviously everyone listens to The Doors and The Beatles and all that kind of stuff but when I bought
the first Used record, that changed everything for our band. It was just incredible. I love Incubus and all kinds of stuff. A lot of modern
stuff. We love everything, Fiona Apple, Black Eyed Peas, all across the board.
Katrina: What’s your most embarrassing moment?
Travis: I’m the most comfortable on stage. I mean I’ve fallen off stage on my back but it’s usually just pretty funny to me. I’m not really
embarrassed on stage.
Katrina: What’s your most memorable moment?
Travis: Falling off the stage on my back. The stage was about (waist) high and I had been drinking a lot of the night and I fell on my back.
Everybody in the room, there was like 15 people in the bar, yeah that was pretty funny.
Katrina: What’s your favorite venue to play?
Travis: In Canada I’d say Red’s probably in our home town Edmonton. It’s only about 1600 kids but they just pack in there and go crazy.
Maybe because it’s our home town or what but it’s really good.
Katrina: What do you think about how Canadian music is being shown around the world right now?
Travis: It’s great. You’ve got Sum 41, Nickelback, love them or not like them, I don’t know. They’re doing a lot of things worldwide which
is a lot more to be said then a lot of bands are doing. It’s really good. It’s awesome, I think Canadian music is just as good if not better
than American music.
