Bio

Life works in mysterious ways, and for homegrown emcee Travy P that meant packing his bags and making the move from Brisbane to Sydney to sleep on a studio floor. This move marked a turning point and preceeded collaborations with Manu Crooks, B Wise, I.E. and 360. 360 featured on his debut single in 2017 ‘Sleepover’, that single was just a taste of his EP Photos Of Images Never Taken (POINT) and was quickly backed up by the Manu Crooks collaboration 24/7.

A domino effect took hold and Travy P was here. Opening for Manu Crooks, Riff Raff, Tory Lanes, Keith Ape, 360, Deltron 3030 and gained features on High Snobiety, Complex and Acclaim.
 
Travy P is no stranger to the microphone. He’s been free-styling and beatboxing since primary school, and has been an omnipresent advocate for Brisbane’s burgeoning hip-hop scene for years. His early mixtapes and Out Of The Blue EP showed a clear appreciation for Golden Era legends like Big L and Lord Finesse, layered with more contemporary touches influenced by Kid Cudi and Kanye West.
 
Moreover, his approach to songwriting radiates with positivity – a perfect pairing with his brazen and bright dress sense. It’s a refreshing alternative to hip hop fuelled by macho bravado and faux gangsterisms, and indicative of his teams movement towards a more progressive mindset.
 
Travy P further cites Biz Markie as his favourite artist, saying he could relate because they’re both “misunderstood and got laughed at.” It’s clear that despite his often-humourous lyricism, Travy P is an artist to be taken very seriously in Australia and abroad.
 
As an all-rounder who excels and accelerates in all lanes, Travy P is primed to snatch the spotlight. You better recognise the sound and look towards the skies, because Travy P says “I ain't going nowhere. Nowhere but up.”

I'm liking Travy in this kinda mood! Laidback but he doesn't sacrifice the bars to get that vibe right.
