Product Notes

The words 'folky' and 'catchy' aren't often spoken in the same sentence (ones I use, at least), but it's true of Travis and Jonny-and it's not the only potentially confusing thing about them. Though there is a Travis and a Jonny, they are actually a five-piece and, while it's a folk band, their lyrics are (gasp!) about modern-day issues and not whiskey stills, tambourine men, and the like. It's folk music that does some soul-searching and exploration and doesn't just tell story after story of people who are hopelessly down on their luck or overcoming adversity with a perseverance of the spirit. It plays like folk music should in 2008: It's smart, addresses problems that have been around since the dawn of time with a keen, modern eye, and looks back in history for inspiration without giving anyone the sense that the band would rather be hopping a train with Arlo Guthrie somewhere in the Midwest with only their wits and a guitar. Pat O'brien - City Pages You could take your parents (or, alternatively, your kids) to see Travis and Jonny. The group has enough alt-country sensibility and salt to appeal to the young 'uns, but they also conjure a nostalgia for 1960s pop. Jonathan Kraft (a.k.a. Jonny) comes across with the happy-go-lucky fervor of Paul McCartney on the White Album, even as the group, which is actually composed of five members, musically channels a mishmash of current country-folk artists. Refreshingly, they avoid folk-music clichés of losing wives and hopping freights in favor of contemporary issues, though they do have a song about a miner. Jessica Chapman - Minnesota Monthly.
