Travis Bowlin‘s second studio album, Secundus, is a flavorful, driven yet sultry rock/soul/blues opus that takes us from there jazzy, smoky, lounge feeling of “Casaurina Sand” to heavy/hitting rock songs like “Dancing With The Devil.” There’s plenty of soul in between with tunes like “Strange Vibes” with its Wilson Pickett feel from start to finish, and the downright dirty blue stylings of tracks like “Slow Cooker Man” and “Vicksburg Blues.”
This record is filled with lyrics that take you right there like a movie inside your head. There’s love, hate, happiness, sadness, and plenty of attitude throughout. The 12 original compositions were recorded it Mainframe Recording Studio with Bowlin serving as producer and Nathan Smith as sound engineer.
Secundus debuted at #8 on the Global Album Blues/Rock charts, #8 on the Tennessee Blues/Rock Album charts, #47 on Amazon’s 100 Top Selling Blues Albums, #33 on iTunes Top 200 Best Selling Blues Albums, made it on six Top 50 charts and jumped quickly from #38 to #5 on the Root’s Music Reports Blues Rock Charts.
