A Day and an Evening with William H. Travis and Friends – Cassette Tape Release
March 9 @ 4:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Get ready for an exceptional evening of Indie-Folk and Americana at Godfrey Daniels in Bethlehem, PA, featuring two captivating shows by William H. Travis and his band, two different opening acts, and more.
4:30 PM Show:
Starting off, we’re excited to introduce Sheala, a student of Travis, followed by Becca Maye. Becca, making a rare solo appearance, will share some heartfelt tunes, including older tracks and unreleased songs reflecting her journey through the pandemic. Then, groove to the soulful melodies of William H. Travis and his band.
8:00 PM Show:
Later on, catch Hailey, another of Travis’s students, before Wyatt Davidick takes the stage with his alt-folk tunes accompanied by upright bass played by Ben Sanchez, trumpet played by Liam Mckenna, and lap steel played by Erik Santana. Expect poetic lyricism and soulful melodies from Wyatt. The night wraps up with another mesmerizing set from William H. Travis and his band.
Don’t miss this evening of great music and camaraderie as we celebrate William H. Travis and his talented collaborators.
William H. Travis is a disgruntled songwriter who tries to sing in ways that aren’t personally displeasurable and to write in ways that aren’t regrettable in the hindsight years. The lyrics and music are equal parts undiagnosed depression and unhinged joy. Viewers have been overheard saying things like, “I feel like I’m at a birthday party at a funeral.” These viewers may be fictionalized as there is no documented proof of their existence. William H. Travis lives in Bethlehem, PA, and only ever leaves home to remember why it is hardly ever left. John Kimock, Alex Luquet, and Justin Mazer will be accompanying.
Becca Maye – Opening the 4:30 PM Show
Becca Maye is looking forward to sharing a batch of heartfelt and emotional songs, for a rare solo performance. It’s been years since she took the stage as a solo act, but when William H Travis asked her to join the bill for a very special night of music, she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to support her kind and talented friend. She will be performing some older tracks and a few unreleased songs written in the earlier years of the pandemic. Like many people, she felt she lost her light and struggled to find her musical voice and spirit. Finally feeling like herself again (as a musician and normal person), Becca Maye is recording an album with her band Small Mess and working on new material with her friends in Ghost Lily.

Wyatt Davidick – Opening the 8 PM Show
In an attempt to dust the proverbial ceiling fan clean just to comment on the dust that falls, Wyatt Davidick, the alt-folk singer-songwriter from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, does just that. Currently accompanied by upright bass played by Ben Sanchez, trumpet played by Liam Mckenna, and lap steel played by Erik Santana. Visit his Bandcamp: https://wyattdavidick.bandcamp.com/album/demos
