Travis Linville's UP AHEAD out FEB 3

Oklahoma’s Travis Linville will release the gorgeously melodic roots album, Up Ahead, this week via CEN/RED Distribution, a division of Sony Music. An inexplicably authentic instrumentalist known for his work as a sideman with Hayes Carll, Linville moves to the front of the stage to start his release tour this week. Perfect timing as Up Ahead is also climbing up the Americana and Non-Com/Triple A charts with over 20 adds this week from key stations such as KRSH, WFIV, WMNF and Main Public Broadcasting.

NPR Music featured "Wishes" in World Cafe's 'Heavy Rotation: 10 Songs Public Radio Can't Stop Playing'. Ryan La Croix of KOSU's The Spy says, "‘Wishes’ is a highlight of Travis Linville’s forthcoming full-length. The relatable tune, paced by steady percussion and accented by a crying pedal steel, focuses on those ever-escaping moments as folks weave in and out of our lives.”  He goes on to praise, “Up Ahead represents a fully focused effort.”

Travis Linville produced Up Ahead in a small studio in Norman, OK, essentially in reverse. "I had a bunch of half-written songs, and in some cases just musical road maps, so I brought some musicians into the studio for a marathon live tracking to songs they didn’t know—and I didn’t either at that point. The idea was to create a musical track for me to write over to finish out the songs." The result is a gorgeously melodic roots album that gives priority to the song.
