This month on Indie Spotlight we’re going out east with up-and-comer Travis Lawless.
The budding hip-hop artist has been making music since 2017 while juggling a demanding career as a sought-after tattoo artist in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Lawless takes pride in writing his own songs and often looks to influences like Classified, Snak the Ripper, and Merkules when penning his next track. His music continues to evolve while he navigates this new career path, looking to his parents as pillars of support – who he credits as his non-musical influences.
While his music grows and the opportunities to play shows and create music videos grows along with it, Lawless still says one of the greatest challenges is getting his music out there for his fans to hear in a live atmosphere. As for what the future holds, he hopes to earn a sold-out tour.
You can find Travis Lawless on Instagram, Twitter, ReverbNation, and through Youtube under Import Music.
Rebecca here- a Niagara native now living and breathing music in Toronto. As a Ryerson journalism graduate and a self-proclaimed music junkie, I’ve been fortunate enough to write for brands like Andpop and Really Records, and now Canadian Beats. My tastes in music are all over the map- Stevie Wonder to Fall Out Boy; Miranda Lambert to One Direction – which is why I spend almost as much money on concerts as I do on rent. But I have no regrets. If you like my ramblings you can also find me on Twitter (RMattina5) & Instagram (rmattina93).
