Travis Richmond - vocals, guitars Justin Shipley - guitars, vocals Evan Ray - drums Josh Thompson - bass, vocals With a work ethic as strong as oak and a tendency to let loose to match, Plainview has taken the regional music scene by surprise. Their soulful interpretation of Red Dirt country music has been affectionately referred to as Rebel Country. This title encompasses both their inspired music and personalities. These hardworking and devoted musicians do not hold themselves within the boundaries of what is standard or predictable in today's American music, hence the phrase Rebel Country. Plainview, founded by singer/guitarist Travis Richmond and guitarist Justin Shipley, began as a free-time songwriting project while they honed their craft as live session players for numerous solo artists. It wasn't long before they discovered they had inadvertently created the sound and musical identity they had so long hoped to find in the artists they were backing. This led to the addition of bassist Josh Thompson, which brought a new element of pure energy and talent to the group. The extraordinarily talented drummer, Evan Ray, was brought into the mix after a long awaited move to Texas, completing the line-up to what is certain to become the next musical group to inspire one's everyday life. These four amazing artists and personalities, with influences and experience ranging from black to white, have written, recorded and performed their vision of what music is missing today, heart, soul, and emotion. It's the mergence of traditional and modern country and rock styles that give them the edge in grabbing the attention of anyone who listens. Plainview is real. Real people. Real music. Real America.
