Go Touring


Free performance Tuesday, August 16 at 7pm: Coos Bay, OR @ So It Goes Coffeehouse

Hailing, respectively, from Nehalem, Oregon and Austin, Texas, TRAVIS CHAMP and LONGRIVER embark on their first West Coast Tour in support of last year’s highly acclaimed LP THIS WESTERN ROAD and LONGRIVER'S eponymous debut. 

Rolling Stone Germany describes the songs of TRAVIS CHAMP as "Cosmic American and Experimental Country.” The Austin Chronicle claims LONGRIVER hearkens Bob Dylan and John Fahey as he spins "mesmerizing acoustic soundscapes.” 

Sample their albums at:

Travis Champ and Longriver exemplify both the darkness and light of American country, blues, and folk. From the cryptic and haunted lyricism echoing from Champ’s baritone voice, to the grounded, yet mystical allure of Longriver’s incantations of love and death, of mothers and fathers, of the sun and the moon. These songs are for the high and the low, for those who dwell in the Shadows, and those who dream beside the River.

Having toured extensively throughout the continental
United States and Australia as the frontman for The Lonesome Heroes, Rich Russell wears, with a grin, the much deserved badge of modern-day troubadour. His songs are contagious, his legend inextinguishable.

“Many bands claim Gram Parsons and Big Star as influences, but few compare to such time-tested landmarks. The reconfigured Lonesome Heroes fill the bill by drawing as much from Seventies pop as they do from a potpourri of country rock. The ear-pleasing results make for one of Austin's best discs of 2015.”
-The Austin Chronicle

"Cosmic Austin-based based Lonesome Heroes’ album Can't Stand Still creeps under the skin, right into your bloodstream. Western Americana fans will delight”
-KCRW 89.9 FM, Los Angeles

Praise for Longriver:

"In his former quartet the Black, David Longoria unraveled a Dylan-esque twang and rolling lyrics bursting through a rockabilly energy. Now, the Austin songwriter and poet, Longriver, turns towards an intimate folk. The intricate guitar work that highlighted last year’s demos and cassette-only debut hearkened John Fahey as Longriver spins mesmerizing acoustic soundscapes." 
– Doug Freeman , Austin Chronicle 

"I can't say that I've seen a performance so magnetic and intimate in a very long time. Seriously, I haven't seen someone hold the audience in the palm of their hand like that since I saw Townes Van Zandt." - JT Halmfist, Audios Amigos, Thee Headliners


Poet and Songwriter of obscure legend from the remote town of Nehalem, Oregon formerly of The Cedar Shakes and publisher of Abandon Press

Acclaim for Travis Champ (The Cedar Shakes):

"The vision of the recently founded label, Whatbang Records, is as eloquent as it is promising claiming to produce "Independent Cosmic American and Experimental Country on 12" and 7" vinyl. Sounds too good to be true. The first LP from The Cedar Shakes eliminates any doubts, however, as to whether that promise is grandiose. (4 out 5 Stars)"
- Wolfgang Doebeling - Rolling Stone Germany

"I have now heard the best new voice of fresh country music you'll never hear on cliched country music stations.." - Matt Love (Coast Weekend)
John Beane
