With his fifth full-length release in just under three years, The Man From RavCon invites you to take a trip. No need to leave home - just slip on the headphones, dim the lights, sit back and let the journey begin.
The eleven instrumentals that make up The Traveler showcase The Man From RavCon’s atmospheric blend of Surf, Spy, Psych-Prog and Spaghetti Western. They provide the perfect soundtrack for a timeless journey.
What the critics are saying...
“The Traveler is an excursion well worth signing on for. And isn't it comforting to know there are still surfing prog-spies out there keeping us safe?”
Kathleen Johnson - Vintage Guitar Magazine
“The Traveler is no mere mash-up of surfing' spaghetti spies. Instead, The Man From RavCon has subsumed and transformed his influences, managing to be both nostalgic and completely contemporary. It is his most organic and integrated release to date.”
Pat Moran - Creative Loafing
“The Man From RavCon broke my heart, fixed it, reinvented it and then made it sing with his extraordinary CD, The Traveler.”
Emma Jade Gunn - SurfRockMusic.com
“The Traveler captures the sights and sound of the 60's and 70's, while delivering the feel of flying through the clouds. The eleven songs represent some of his best work to date.”
Sean Berry - The Continental Magazine
“The Traveler, is one of the most inventive and well rounded instrumental guitar albums of 2012”
Robert Silverstein - mwe3.com
“The Man From RavCon certainly has a way with melodies and paints these scenes with skillful use of electric, acoustic and bass guitars as well as organ, Mellotron, piano and synthesisers.”
