Travis Michael Nagy is a songwriter who aspires to capture elements of the "cosmic American music" in his writing. Born in South Florida, Travis was heavily influenced by his upbringing in a working class environment. His worldview was shaped first by exposure to his family's rust belt roots and the multi-cultural currents running through his early childhood in South Florida. As a teenager, Travis moved to a small town in South Carolina. It was in South Carolina that Travis heard for the first time the sounds of the American South. While a student at the University of South Carolina, Travis first sought to combine his knack for the written word with his love for music that told a story. Today, Travis's songwriting continues to pay homage to the hard working people that surrounded him in his childhood. He also seeks to tell his own stories from his travels around the world and his talks with folks from all walks of life.
