Hi, my name is Travis and I’m a multi-instrumentalist/songwriter originally from Johannesburg, South Africa but I permanently reside in the New Orleans, Louisiana. I currently front Alternative/Rock band “Dead Days”, and recently started a new project called "Hynea Black" too - but thought I’d set up a personal site to showcase some of the other things I’m currently up to.
“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.
“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).
I’ve been playing and writing music professionally for about twenty years yet still feel like an excited kid whenever I have an instrument in front of me. I’ve been extremely fortunate during this time to have performed and worked with some amazingly talented artists, in amazing venues and locations 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” (SAMA Nominated Percussion Group), Ray Dylan (Afrikaans Pop Star) and “Pyramid Tongue” (SA Rock Band).
In addition to the current solo and band gigs I do, I find myself starting to write and record for a fair amount for other artists. If you would like me to get involved with your project (be it live or studio) feel free to contact me.
