Album Notes
Mystery Tramp Records is proud to announce the release of Travis of Mystery Tramp's "The Ocean is a Woman" CD. His genuine boat music was inspired by the people, places and adventures of our shakedown cruise from San Francisco to Mexico aboard our self-built sailboat, Mystery Tramp.

Travis will have you sipping cervezas and humming along as he takes you south of the border with his fresh blend of cruiser country rock served with a dose of sea salt and a squeeze of lime.

In the storytelling spirit of Jimmy Buffet, Bob Dylan, the Grateful Dead, Willie Nelson, and Jerry Jeff Walker, he began writing about the people he met and his impressions of the cruising life. Travis's songs will rock you to ask for second cerveza and take you to a place you want to go where the margaritas flow. He will also soothe you soul like the ocean and make you laugh, then other times inspire you to chase your dream. Travis of Mystery Tramp's "The Ocean is a Woman" CD offers something for every sailor on the sea or in the armchair, the offshore fisherman and parrot head, as well as people who love Mexico or are simply dreamers.

Unique amongst nautical oriented music CDs "The Ocean is a Woman" CD includes "A Visual Voyage by Emily". "A Visual Voyage" is a collection of images in a digital photographic slideshow format vividly depicting the story of what a cruisers life is like.

A California native, Travis was previously a structural iron worker. Leaving the high rises for the high seas he traveled from Alaska to Costa Rica in continuous search of adventure. Along the way he met a cruiser who had built a steel sailboat. Inspired to do the same, Travis returned to California, where he met his wandering mermaid, photographer and writer, Emily. Together they completed their 44' steel cutter, Mystery Tramp and set sail for Baja and the Sea of Cortez.

Travis has performed at the wildly successful 2002 and 2003 Loreto Fest in Puerto Escondido (Loreto area), Baja; at Club Paradiso in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexcio; Paradise Found in La Paz, Baja; plus at the "Gypsies in the Palace" Jimmy Buffett pre-party at the Key Largo in Las Vegas; and at the Jimmy Buffet party in Mountain View, California; as well as numerous beaches.

Travis is currently sailing the sea, making music wherever he goes and fishing to his heart's content.

Be sure to visit their website (, a journey full of adventures in music, photography, cruising (sailing), and life.

to write a review


Great sailing music!
Travis really captures the essence of sailing in his music. It's great cruising music!


Stands out from the many Buffettesque musicians
I've listened to a lot of "Jimmy Buffettesque" musicians and we were very impressed with Travis. Travis, you have a great style, voice and your harmonica is awesome.


Warm, humorous, visceral and emmotional.
This is a pure taste of their life, and, life in general if you can be true to yourself. Close your eyes and listen. If it doesn't spark something deep inside you're in trouble with the cosmos! As a matter of fact, if you don't like this CD I'LL but it from you!

fred toomoth

outstanding. hope he does some more


can listen over and over and over again!
Great cd, If you don't already own it, buy it!


Why did I wait so long???
I dont know why I waited so long for this CD. The Ocean is a Woman is outstanding work. you can really feel what Travis sings.

Liquid Prairie Boy

Heard it, loved it, found it, bought it!
This CD is a refreshing change from your typical 'parrot head' music. Travis has a great voice and is an equally great song writer. These songs are now permanently stored on my boat's MP3 player!

Billy Peoples

Travis has a great voice
Loved the slideshow and the album. Travis has a great voice. My favorite songs are Chasing a Dream and Naked Canadian.

Captain Woody

What's not to like
What's not to like; good voice, good writing and he's singing about my favorite subjects; cruisin' and boozin'. Of all the cruising sailor music cds that I have this is one I listen to all the time. Great album!
