The group consists of Josh Goldberg, Max Johl and Donald Perdomo. Together they strive to create something previously unheard, combining the familiar to make new, and just making new to make new. They are modern day bards, trying to relay stories through their music and striving for excellence in both their story-telling and their musicianship. They take influences from everywhere, ranging from Bach, Debussy and Coltrane to RX Bandits, Animals as Leaders and King Krimson. They are progressive, they are jazzy, they are rock and they are here to tell you their story.
The sound of And The Traveler can be summarized as up-tempo progressive rock with jazz and classical undertones. The group incorporates elements of melancholy rock, jazz, experiemental composition, roots, acoustic, ambient, and straight ahead rock. The listener will hear massive, full sections transforming to clean intimate parts, each pertaining to a moment the band is choosing to capture. With the wildly different, yet utterly complitmentary ways the members of And The Traveler view music, they have created unique, creative, and complex melody lines and harmonies for the general listener as well as the hardcore music fan. And The Traveler will truly make the listener feel like they are going on a journey.
