Hey guys and gals. Excited to have my new (and I suppose debut) album coming out after a lot of long hours spent working on it this year. I’m now able to take pre-orders for CD copies of my upcoming album release, Entry Point. If anyone is interested, head over to www.travistoy.com and you should be able to pre-order a copy. You can also listen to audio samples of all the tunes. If all goes according to schedule, they should be shipping before Christmas. #stockingstuffers

In addition to being available via digital music outlets on 11/29, it will also be available as a digital download from my website. High quality MP3s with a PDF of the liner notes/CD artwork.

Very excited to get this out and for everyone to hear it. It’s been a long time coming, but it finally seemed like the right time to do it. I hope anyone who gets a copy enjoys listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Hey Allan. I also replied to your website submission. Sorry for the shipping cost. That’s unfortunately what it costs to send one up there. There is a digital download option on the site as well. It’s only $12.99, and you get a download link instantly. A lot of international guys are doing that, as it’s way cheaper.

It is also available on iTunes and Amazon Music. Lots of options available.

Thanks, Travis. I just preordered. I'll get it shipped to Washington State and take a drive down.
Looking forward to it.
By the way, I'm really enjoying your musiccitylicks vids.

Dude, it's killer. First impressions are Steely Dan, George Benson, and Pat Metheny.
Newgrass, Country, Western Swing ones too.
I'd say this is some new ground broken for PSG. You should be proud.

I'm only 3 songs in and totally blown away. Such variety of styles and clean speed. Listening to Alabama Jubilee right now! I'll be putting it on my slow down app and try to pick out some of those sweet single note scale runs!!

Excellent CD, Overall probably one of my favourite Steel guitar cd's of all time , and that's just one listen,
I think especially "Lock the door" is especially good and also Adranna's song are stand outs,

Travis , be proud , nice work , IMO I think you pushed open the pedal steel just a bit more, which considering who has come before you is saying a lot ..

Thank you Greg. I really appreciate your comments. “Lock The Door” is arguably my favorite tune on the record. I think it’s a really great example of the types of things that are running around in my head a lot of times. Ha. I had a lot of fun writing and arranging that one.

Your welcome, On that song ,That banjo solo is epic,as well as your steel playing, if that's the kind of stuff thats rolling around, pretty awesome, the arrangement is complex.

I can really see or hear you going into Tim Miller or Allan Holdworth type chording as well,

I think Tim Miller is in some ways the greatest guitar player alive today, love to hear you do something with him.

Cheers , Greg

wonderful CD and production.

Favorite song You've got a Hold on Me, great vocal by TT.

Al. Jubilee is pretty interesting, love the half step raise at the end . How did you get your picks to stay on and not fly off ! Laughing Big fan of Andy as well.

Thanks Tony. I appreciate that. That’s my favorite lyrical song I’ve ever written. I originally did a simple guitar/vocal of that song back in probably 2003 or so. I knew I wanted to redo the song for this album, so I managed to find the multitrack of the 2003 recording I did. I wound up keeping the original acoustic track I did back then, and building everything else new around it.

Alabama Jubilee was fun. I wanted to put my own spin on it. Really turned out great, especially with Jim and Josh coming in and assaulting some fiddle and dobro solos. Haha. Two of my favorite players.
