Singer/Songwriter and New Brunswick native Travis Cormier has been playing the guitar since the age of 9. He launched his first band in high school and was influenced by both Pop Rock and Country Music. Even as a child Travis had started writing his own songs. After high school, Travis flew from Moncton at the age of 17 to Los Angeles to study at the Musicians Institute on Hollywood Boulevard. While he was studying Travis continued to work on his passion of writing and performing. He played in some of the most famous bars in L.A like The Whisky A Go Go and The Roxy.
Three years ago Travis moved to Montreal to compete in the fourth season of La Voix (The Voice) and blew everyone away with his version of Aerosmith's “Dream On”. The video has close to 1M views on Youtube. The four coaches on the show turned around immediately and naturally the Acadian selected rock star Éric Lapointe to mentor him. During his time on the show Travis was able to showcase his talents by covering songs such as “Bed of Roses” by Bon Jovi, “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” by Bob Dylan. This is when “Travismania” began.
After the TV show Travis toured extensively throughout the province of Quebec, until he received the call of a lifetime. He was asked if he could open for Bon Jovi. “It was a dream come true. How many people can say they lived one of their biggest dreams as a kid”.
Then another milestone in his career happened shortly thereafter when he when he was invited on stage at an Aerosmith show by none other than Steven Tyler to sing “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing”. Tyler had taken the time to watch Travis audition for The Voice and was blown away.
Last August Travis was invited to meet Canadian Icon Bryan Adams. “Bryan said he was a fan and enjoyed my music… I had no words. He gave me some guidance and told me the most important thing in this business is to focus on my shows and always giving the audience my very best.”
After months of work in a studio in Vancouver (owned by Bryan Adams), Travis released his 1st album titled “Dollars and Hearts” (Universal Music) in November. It was produced by Canadian Icon Bob Rock (Metallica, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith), who made his “vision come true of what (he) wanted for (his) first album”. Cormier also got to collaborate with Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora. Travis’ debut Single “Dollars and Hearts” by Mark Frederikson, Songwriter of mega hits by Aerosmith, Daughtry, Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill and Ozzy Osborne to name a few). Dollars and Hearts quickly debuted at Number 1 on the Canadian iTunes charts the first week-end of its release.
In November Travis signed a record deal with Caroline/ Universal Records in the USA. They are planning on releasing his album this coming spring 2019.
Most recently Travis was invited by Canada’s Walk of Fame to perform a tribute of Bryan Adams songs at this year’s 20th Anniversary Gala. It was his first actual appearance in Toronto!
