Creating music is a very personal thing. We take inspiration from our lives and our surroundings. Oftentimes we merge that outside influence and relate it to our own lives to create something that is truly us. Our recent discovery Trav B Ryan seems to have done just that with his latest track “No Home”.
We caught up with the inspiring rising cinematic hip hop star for a chat. Enjoy the interview:
First off, what draws you to create music?
Everything man. It can be from an emotion I am feeling, a dream, a memory, something I saw on TV. Anything.
With all the wild monikers in music nowadays, what made you go with Trav B Ryan?
I went with that name because my name is Travis Ryan Bramble. I am just showing that I am no one but myself. No matter how much you rearrange me.
How would you describe your sound?
Very emotional and cinematic. I always felt like when you hear my music you get the same goosebumps as if you are waiting for a movie trailer you want to see or a meal that you want. Its very exciting and adrenaline pumping.
Which artists have had the biggest influence on Trav B Ryan?
I have always been a fan of Eminem, Kanye, Kid Cudi. They had their own sound. That always resonated with me. I inspired to be that same way.
We hear you have a love for comic books and “nerd” culture. Tell us about that?
Yea I always did. I use to watch fox kids when I was a kid with all the X Men shows and Spiderman. Always been excited when a new super movie came out. I have always been in that culture. I think its because I’m a fan of the whole good vs evil story. I’m a fan of both sides.
Your latest track “No Home” seems to have a story behind it. Shere the inspiration behind it?
Well it was inspired by The Mandalorian show on Disney+. I made it with that in mind. I’m a huge fan of the show. So much so that I started a baby Yoda petition to make him an emoji and it went viral. So I definitely had that show in mind. I also made it to inspire other people. To show them that they can forget their past and create a better future. Like it is ok to not have a home right now if you are working ok creating a better one. Creating your own destiny and breaking away from all negative ties.
How does a song come together for you? What is the songwriting process?
I go through beats and what ever attracts me and I connect with is the one I choose. It’s not a particular sound I am looking for its almost like the sound finds me. Whatever can spark something in me I chose it and I write to it. It usually takes me 10 mins to write a song because there is no struggle. The vibe writes it for me
What does the future hold for Trav B Ryan?
A lot more of this. Great music from a great place. More sharing my mind with the world. I have a Disney project I am putting together that’s going to blow your minds so definitely stay tuned for that. I’m excited.
