About Travis Ewing
From our live blog:
Travis is an LSU grad, and won Musician of the Year in New Orleans for RAW Artist. But he’s having a hard time breaking into the music industry. That said, he does have a pretty cool technique for performance, making use of loop pedals to turn himself into a one-man band. Travis recalls that he was originally encouraged by his 7th grade teacher, adding that if not for her, he wouldn’t be in this position right now. Before the audition, Carson plays a video of his teacher wishing him luck on his audition, and Travis is overwhelmed at seeing her for the first time in 10 years, although that would seem to suggest that he hasn’t actually seen her since he was her student. Ah well, whatever, this was sweet anyway.
Travis sings “Say My Name” by Destiny Child, and when I heard the song choice, I really didn’t think this was going to be as good as it ended up being. This was a smooth, funky, cool performance. It felt like a very adult performance, like Christian Grey grabbing a microphone. Christina is first to hit her button, while Blake holds out for a bit longer. Pharrell hits it at the end, but Adam never pushes his button.
Travis Ewing picks TEAM PHARRELL WILLIAMS!
