Reviewing the Music Business Success of Travis Greene
If you are looking for a good male to male vocals and instrumental pieces for your Jazz or Blues albums, Travis Greene will be the man you need. The man that influenced so many future artists including Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Percy Sledge and Aretha Franklin. This Canadian born vocalist/songwriter/performer had an amazing voice that came from a childhood of abuse and stress. It is said that when he was a young boy, his Uncle had his tongue cut out by an iron rod because he would not stop talking and screaming all night long.
He would carry this grisly experience through until he was an adult. Some of the songs he wrote while in foster care and at university would lead him to the realization that he was actually living a miserable life. He began to channel his anger and pain into writing music that was meant to give vent to his emotions. He felt that if he could let loose on the piano he would no longer have to take pain to write his thoughts.
His first musical attempts failed and he was disappointed with his lack of ability. However, he did not give up and instead turned to the piano to create his first few songs. It was while working on one of these that he would meet a woman who would eventually become his wife. Their courtship was a great success and he knew that he had found his calling.
He worked with other artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, George Strait, Percy Sledge and Aretha Franklin. All of them produced various Travis Greene songs during his short career. Some of their collaborations are some of his most popular work.
Some of the songs that were recorded with the band The Temptations included “Tears in Heaven”, “Mystery Train”, “I’m Going to Sit on the Ground” and “Hallelujah Praise”. There were also songs recorded with the Beach Boys like “I Remember You”, “Come As You Are” and “I Want a New Moon”. One of his greatest triumphs came when he was asked to compose music for the film, Grease. The movie went on to be very successful and featured stars like Ellen DeGeneres, John Tutturro and Victoria Beckham. Travis was nominated for an Academy Award for his work on the film. In addition to his musical career, he also served as a composer on several feature films.
Some of the Travis Greene songs that have become classics are, “I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles”, “Green Onions” and “Hear the Song”. These songs have been covered by many artists including The Who, Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney. Some people also associate the name of this country songwriter with the R&B singer, Junior Parker. This is because Junior Parker was a big fan of the Temptations and he even wrote some of his own music.
A great example of one of Travis Greene’s songs written by him is “Give Me the Reason”. This is a great song written for the movie, Grease. It is a very positive song about a man who wants to give the woman in his life everything that she wants. Another song that he wrote for a movie was “That’s What You Get” which features his friend Stevie Nicks. He and Nicks had worked with other artists before including Ray Price and Smokey Robinson. This song has also gone on to become one of the biggest hits of all time.
There is no doubt that Travis Greene had a long and illustrious recording career. However, he will always be known more for his musical contributions than his recording career. His songs were some of the most requested songs by listeners. This is why many people consider him to be one of the best country singers ever.
