Mushkat 

Alamo Defender (Gooseberry)

Why isn't Mushkat more talked about? Even in our tiny pond, overrun with schools of singer-songwriters, Bill Travis stands out. With a Ben Lee-like voice, Travis effortlessly moves from traditional singer-songwriter pop to perfect bossa nova, smoky cool jazz and quiet folk. The lyrics tend toward didactic, with environmental themes that can be a bit much. But the lessons are worth taking for gritty and saucy tracks like "It's Good to Be in Love." More than just the Alamo, with his latest, Travis defends his place among Halifax's top singer-songwriters.
