TRAViS T. WARREN EMERGES ViCTORiOUS
AS ROCKWiRED.COM's ARTiST OF THE MONTH!!!
FEBRUARY 1, 2013 - The polls have closed for ROCKWIRED.COM's recent ARTIST OF THE MONTH campaign. Voters from all over the U.S. made their vote count and TRAVIS T. WARREN (of BLIND MELON) is ROCKWIRED.COM's newest ARTIST OF THE MONTH for his debut solo album 'BENEATH THESE BORROWED SKIES' from CLARITY WAY RECORDS. Given the fact that he is the voice of BLIND MELON one would've thought singer TRAVIS T. WARREN would've come out guns blazing on his debut CD but BENEATH THESE BORROWED SKIES puts introspection over bombast. This hauntin collection of songs serve asa remnder of the power and intimacy of fine songwriting - a craft that is all too overlooked in the ag of the i-pod shuffle. I really tried to sing about real things - things that I see a lot of people deal with." says WARREN "I've seen addiction take a lot of people out. I remember growing up thinking that it was cool to be fucked up and thinking it was cool to end up like a lot of my idols. You romanticize a lot of that stuff when your younger and I think a lot of people do that but hopefully I can reach out to young people and show them that there is a better way to live."RELATED LiNKS:
