“Porch Vibes”

from “When it’s time to say goodbye”

Travis Swanson - When it's time to say goodbye

The title “When It’s Time To Say Goodbye“, has so many personal meanings to me. Firstly, it relates directly to my choice to pursue my own voice on the guitar. During the time these compositions were written, I had returned to Marquette, Michigan in pursuit of finding out who I really was as an artist. This meant trying to make sense of my many interests in music, and more importantly, writing music that was directly influenced by my life.

I wanted to capture my own personal journey in these compositions, and I am proud to say that with the help of my friends Nicholas Bracewell and Aiden Cafferty, we did just that.

Besides relating to my journey on finding my voice, it relates to the challenges we face in our own lives when we find ourselves unsure of our next step. Often times, our fear of the unknown can cripple us, and it leaves us frozen in situations that drain us both physically and mentally. I wanted to capture both the suffering and liberation in making the choice to say goodbye to the familiar and comfortable.

Initially, we will be releasing this album digitally with physical copies to be available in the new year.
