Live Bootleg

by Travis Meeks

Travis Meeks's bass growl earned the predictable comparisons to Alice in Chains and Jim Morrison, though the emphasis on acoustic guitars lends a closer affinity with latter-day Pearl Jam.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Originally hailing from Charlestown, IN, before relocating to Louisville, KY, Days Of The New was signed to a recording deal after just three shows and released their self-titled debut album in June 1997. Three of the band, Travis Meeks (b. 27 April 1979; singer/songwriter/guitarist), Jesse Vest (b. 10 May 1977; bass) and Matt Taul (b. 30 August 1978; drums), previously performed as the Metallica-influenced Dead Reckoning. When the band revised itself into Days Of The New, guitarist Todd Whitener (b. 25 May 1978; rhythm guitar) rounded out the line-up.

The group has been driven by Meeks' musical vision from the get-go. The band's largely acoustic sound caught the ear of former R.E.M. producer Scott Litt, who signed the group to his newly formed label, Outpost, and oversaw the group's self-titled 1997 release. The album, often called The Orange Album, was an immediate hit on the strength of such singles as "Touch, Peel and Stand" and "The Down Town." "Touch, Peel and Stand" quickly hit the number 1 spot on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart, stayed there for over four months and was featured heavily on MTV. The group spent the summer of 1998 opening up for one of their musical heroes, Metallica.

Meeks, parting company with the other members of the band after their tour wrapped up, wrote, recorded and produced the second Days Of The New album on his own, again self-titled but referred to as The Green Album. 2000 saw Meeks cover the Doors classic "The End" with the surviving Doors members for a taping of VH1's Storytellers series (as well as recording a studio version of that song and "L.A. Woman" which appeared on the Doors tribute disc Stoned Immaculate: The Music of the Doors). The band's third album, The Red Album, appeared in 2001. Meeks' career has also included compositions for film soundtracks, production and soundboard expertise for the Southern-based band Ethan, collaboration with songstress Lennon, and sound effects for high-tech video games.

Jon Paul

Great set list and sounds awesome
The songs on the album are good by themselves in the studio, but they sound great played live and acoustic by meeks. It really shows that he doesnt need a whole band to be successful. I wish the tracks from the up and coming DOTN album were on here, but being as the included songs were kick ass, its not a big deal.

Nicolas Verret

Talent meant for stardom. Acoustic sound that still knocks out!
If you like DOTN, you HAVE to get this one! The sound is really good. Travis makes his guitar roar; it takes all the place it can, and it does! And the crowd goes wild!!

Jo Watson


GEESH - is all I can say!! I haven't smiled broader, sung louder, or driven faster (uh-oh) while listening to this CD. What energy and, oh yes......TALENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jesse

Wow I love DOTN
I just got the CD and its awesome. Travis Meeks still sounds great. Its a great live CD... one of the best I have ever heard. Ill be waiting for Purple.

Live Bootleg from Travis Meeks
For a guy who can hold the weight of an entire band on his shoulders, he can put on one hell of a show. Saw him at the House of Blues in Dallas. The show was a lot like this CD, which is a great addition to my "Days of the New" collection.

Must have for any Days of the New fan!
Travis is a great singer/songwriter, very under rated. All these songs are fantastic versions and the sound is kept natural and real. Can't get enough of it!

Steve

Amazing even after Intervention
Travis' performance is nothing short of music perfection (for me at least). I challange anyone to show me the differences between the orignal songs and the Live Bootleg versions. Which in these day's of Pro Tools and studio production is an amazing achievement. What differences there are make the songs even better. When you add on the fact the Travis had recently appeared on an episode of A&E's Intervention (due to a drug dependency)this performance is nothing short of amazing. His music is why I started playing guitar and this CD seals the deal, Travis Meeks is my favorite artist of all time. BUY THIS CD!

brian mckelvey

definitely a must have for days fans - you know who you are.
raw, a little buzzed, and kind of antagonistic tone to voice unlike other cds - otherwise an amazing showcase for travis meeks talent - days fans WILL NOT regret this purchase - this cd is exactly what it looks like on the cover, a one man show......
