Hi, my name is Travis. I’m a SAMA nominated multi-instrumentalist/producer/songwriter originally from Johannesburg, South Africa but I permanently reside in the New Orleans, Louisiana. I currently work around town as a freelance musician, drumming with 'acts like 'The Daywalkers', 'The Wolfe Johns Blues Band', 'The Fabulous Von Zippers' and many more.
I also front Alternative/Rock band “Deep Sleep Atlantic”, and work as a singer/songwriter with UK Alt/Rock favorites, "Dead Days", but thought I’d set up this personal site to showcase some of the other things I’m currently up.
“Travis Marc is on fire” - Rhythm Magazine.
“A hell of a dude, who’s played with some massive acts yet manages to focus more on other peoples achievements than his own” - SA Drums and Percussion Magazine.
"Here's a guy to look out for" - Drummer Magazine (UK).
“Travis is my first choice session musician, due to his diversity and humble nature” - Legend Music Records.
“This guys a pro” - Ian D Sa, (Billy Talent).
“Anyone into the Rockier side of things needs to check out Travis and his band, I’m an instant fan" - Cassell (The Streets, PlanB).
“A truly original and solid player” - Johnny Craviotto (Craviotto Drums).
I’ve been playing and writing music professionally for about twenty five years now, during which time I have been signed to both major and independent labels, and been lucky enough to tour several countries. I still feel like an excited kid whenever I have an instrument in front of me and I try and bring that enthusiasm to any project I'm involved in. I've been extremely fortunate during this time to have performed and worked with some amazingly talented artists, in amazing venues all around the world.
Some of these artists include ‘Little Mix” (X-Factor Winners), “Ellie Goulding” (British Pop Sensation), “Laura Evans” (UK Country Star), “1st Project” (SA Percussion Group), Ray Dylan (Afrikaans Pop Star) and “Pyramid Tongue” (SA Rock Band).
