Growing up surrounded by music, I took up the guitar aged 11 with a local teacher. After graduating with a first class degree from Leeds Conservatoire, I quickly became an active member of Leeds thriving music scene.
My work as a sideman has seen me share the stage for performances at Ronnie Scott's, Wembley Stadium and in Amman, Jordan.
As a songwriter and producer, my work has been aired nationally in high street chains and national BBC radio. With my production work with Wandering Monster seeing light on London based label Ubuntu.
As an educator i've taught for many years privately, at the Yorkshire music school and also as a guest lecturer at Leeds Conservatoire where I also teach guitar one to one as staff.
‘Beautifully written and produced, fantastic liquid playing, the groovy guitar wizard Calvin Travers’
'What a thing of beauty it is. His solo searches every musical crevice for inspiration, increasing in tempo and intensity, and is the beating heart of this track'
