Soul Session Vol. 1
Travis Higgins is a musician, recording artist and songwriter. He is no stranger to soul and inspirational music. Born the son of a pastor, Higgins grew up in his father’s church. The drums were his first introduction to musicianship. Later, he transitioned to piano and organ. When he got hit with the music bug it was not gospel music. He enjoyed hip-hop and secular music and even played for a few well-known artists. Travis Higgins credits his mother for training his musical ear by listening to gospel greats like Walter Hawkins, the Winans, Rance Allen, and other soulful gospel recordings. Her secular playlist included sounds of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and the Jackson 5 to name a few. Travis Higgins was unknowingly becoming a student of soul music. Which can be heard on his debut project Soul Session Vol. 1. Soul Session Vol.1 is a breath of fresh air for those missing good soul music.
