Red Skies

“Red Skies” -the Chandler Travis Three-O, recorded at a soundcheck at Passim on Oct. 12, 2012, by Fred Boak.

I’d forgotten all about this one when it popped up the other day for no reason; one of the many songs that get worked up and discarded because they get overshadowed by more promising stuff… no […]

An Ivan in Paris Live Two-fer

​”Ivan in Paris“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, recorded by The Valet at an outdoor party thrown by the Perkins Fambly, July 26, 2014.

This song has a somewhat long, strange history. It started life as an extremely minor, tossed-off experiment with an obscure electronic instrument, an Omnichord, that Bruce Maclean loaned me that somehow ended […]

Suddenly, Everything is Different

“Suddenly Everything Is Different” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic at Herring Cove, P’town, Sept. 4, 2016, shot by Belinda. Couldn’t think of a snappier way to kick off 2017’s SOTW series (and to beat the winter blues!) than to feature a little shot of one of our favorite summer gigs with this cover of a […]

Shut Up!

“Shut Up” – the Chandler Travis Three-O at Luthier’s Co-op in Easthampton, MA, Oct. 14, 2016, shot by Julian Parker-Burns.

This is a preview of a song we’ve been saving up for the Chandler Travis Three-O’s next full-length CD, “Waving Kissyhead, Vol. 3.” I part worry and part enjoy feeling like the audience may think […]

Send Us Your Bedhead Photos!

In honor of the artwork on the upcoming “WAVING KISSYHEAD!!, Vol. 2 & 1” CD, coming along in a few weeks, we’re having a BEDHEAD PHOTO CONTEST!! A bedhead photo is a photo you take of yourself first thing in the morning, before you’re really awake, usually in the bathroom. Needless to say, the results […]

We All Man, We All Human

“Human“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from their new digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead Vol. 1“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain. The arguably brilliant lyric to this one was penned by my friend and occasional golfing buddy, playwright/director/wunderkind Gip Hoppe, whom I keep trying to talk into stuff but […]

Which One Would You Save?

“Your Wife and Mother“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from their new digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead Vol. 1“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain. This is a cover of a song I first heard a few years ago, thanks to my good friend Rob Hart, the Bully of Broadcasting, […]

It’s E!

“E” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, from their current digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead, Vol. 1”, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain, MA.

“E” has always been a crowd favorite, but we play it quite rarely because a.) it’s quite loud and b.) it instantly trashes my voice. Always […]
