Fran Healy is one of my musical heroes. He’s a genius and his music has had a profound influence on my life.
I’ve been listening to Fran and his band, Travis for over 10 years and each song has a special memory attached to it. His music has become a part of my life and my very being. He’s a musical genius.
I’ve been lucky to have seen Fran perform several times, including a small and intimate show, and it was a magical moment each time. When it comes to songwriting, Fran is one of the most profound. It’s impossible to listen to his words and music and not be moved.
Fran just posted this great interview on his website:
Here’s another great interview with Fran. This one includes live acoustic performances of several songs. The interview took place before the release of Wreckorder and was the first time I heard the songs and was instantly moved by them. I couldn’t wait until the album was released, and it’s now one of my favorite albums.
Take a listen and enjoy:
