Country singer’s back
Grab tickets to Travis Collins, who is playing his latest album, Hard Light, in western Sydney
COUNTRY, rock and blues star Travis Collins is heading to western Sydney.
Collins posted on Facebook recently: “I’m back and it’s on!”.
“Rally the troops, grab the tickets, seeya there!!”
Collins’ career was kickstarted in Tamworth in 2004 when he won the Toyota Star Maker Quest.
He jumped at the opportunities the win presented and has consolidated himself in Australia’s very reputable and growing country music industry.
Collins has produced a worthy catalogue of albums and singles during his decade-plus on the music scene.
He has crafted four albums including the No 1 Wired in 2015 and two No.1 singles Curves and Boots On.
His latest album, Hard Light, has received rave reviews, and he’ll draw heavily on during this latest tour.
Collins, who hails from Cessnock, was last in the area in April.
He told The Standard at the time his music had evolved and developed since he first hit the music stage.
“I put out my first two records when I was really young; I was only 19 when Start the Car came out,” Collins said.
“I feel much more centred and balanced these days.”
The country music singer spent much of 2011 on a selffunded tour selling albums from the boot of his car.
“It was absolutely what I needed at that point, to get in touch with directing playing music to people, selling music to people, hearing their stories, and writing their stories,” he said.
Collins will be supported by brother-sister duo Kaylens Rain at Rooty Hill RSL.
The show starts at 8pm and tickets are $20.
