Maynooth, County Kildare
Pre Order the Debut EP NOW
"Travis Oaks’ sound is one of the most refreshing to explode onto the Irish music scene recently. The entire EP is packed start to finish with addictive riffs that render air guitar rock-outs and high kicks unavoidable."
"Travis Oaks EP features three tracks that were crafted very carefully. Each song is well written and bursting with an energy that deserves a live setting to really show it off."
"Their sound is strange but memorable, old school but new and all together just really (f***ing) awesome."
