A multi-cultural musical experience fusing Gypsy, Middle Eastern, Celtic, Greek and Turkish styles with Rock.
Traveler’s sound is an innovative new fusion of World Music and Rock. Using traditional ethnic instruments combined with all the power of a full blown rock band, their performances are intense, exotic and adrenaline-driven.
Scott Jeffers is composer and band leader; he has traveled extensively through foreign lands to gather inspiration for the Traveler project. Composing most of his songs while surrounded by the people, sounds, sights, smells and landscapes of these far away places brings a true authenticity to the fusion. Known for his fiery and passionate violin and vocal performances, Scott’s commanding presence onstage adds to the trademark power of the live Traveler shows.
He also brings traditional instruments from his journeys to the stage: Turkish oud, Moroccan loutar that are ancient predecessors to the guitar, bouzouki, a traditional Greek stringed instrument, and most recently a Moroccan sheep horn.
The real magic of a Traveler concert is in the connection the band makes with the audience. They give a high energy, passionate performance that draws the audience in, perhaps by the combination of the cultural connection people have to the ethnic sounds of their own heritage and this music that is so unique. Whatever their reason, people are always moved to their feet, and drawn closer to the stage to be part of the experience.
Traveler spent the last summers headlining festivals in Turkey, Alaska, Montana, Texas, Utah, Colorado and Canada.
They also perform regularly in Arizona, where the band is based.
