This Louisiana-born singer/songwriter started his musical journey at the age of twelve after writing “Take My Hand” (which would be recorded by Grammy winner Wayne Toups and become a regional standard just a few years later). By the following year, Thibodaux’s musical destiny was set as he began performing in bands across the Gulf Coast/Southern Louisiana area.
By his mid-twenties, Travis would spend several years in Nashville, Tennessee working as a full-time session vocalist and songwriter.
It was his work and dedication to professionalism in Nashville that caught the attention of legendary rock performer/songwriter Jonathan Cain of Journey. In 2015, Travis was hired to be the newest member of Journey’s touring unit, providing background vocals and auxiliary keyboards on stage with some of the biggest icons in rock history: Jonathan Cain, Neal Schon, Ross Valory, Steve Smith, and Arnel Pineda.
“Their songs are so woven into the world fabric. When the first note comes on, all you hear is the roar of the crowd,” says Travis.
In 2016, Travis released his latest recording “Travis Thibodaux.” This six-song E.P. features brand-new original tracks recorded in Nashville, Tennessee.
Having enough of the road life and missing his children, Travis suspended his run with Journey on December 31, 2019. Travis fronts his own, self-named band. The Travis Thibodaux Band (TTB) performs at public and private events across the USA, including corporate events, charity galas, clubs, and festivals. The TTB set list is a combination of incredible classic rock selections, as well as flavors from his Louisiana-roots upbringing, his long stint in the country music capital Nashville, TN, and original songs from his brand new album! He also is a full time member of Gulf Coast band Triggerproof, who's residencies in and around the biggest properties on the Gulf Coast region and beyond are a mainstay!
