Hamilton, ON based singer/songwriter, Travis Gaetz is an all around musician, whether it’s vocals, piano, guitar or violin, he’s got it covered. Travis is currently working on his debut full length album, so we were glad to get this chance to chat with him in our newest segment of Five Questions With. Enjoy!
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Travis Gaetz. I am a professional Singer-Songwriter originally from Calgary now performing all across Southern Ontario.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I write rock and pop music that mixes classical style with more edgy modern themes. I love to write melody first whether on Piano or Guitar; then the lyrics seem to naturally follow.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
I currently have seventeen upcoming shows from London to Toronto Ontario. Depending on the venue it can be a more laid back ambiance show to a rocking out in your face performance!
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Hard choice… However, I would choose “9th Ave & 4th Street” as it is one of my favorites originals to get people dancing!
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?

I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago.
