TRAVIS EDWARD PIKE
1964-1974: A DECADE OF ODD TALES AND WONDERS
Otherworld Cottage Industries (Paperback)
By Lee Zimmerman
Travis Edward Pike’s name and reputation may still reside below the surface of general public awareness, but it’s clearly not through a lack of trying. He’s created a veritable cottage industry consisting of numerous albums, books and other output reflecting his prodigious talents as a singer, songwriter and storyteller.
This follow-up to his earlier musical memoir, Odd Tales and Wonders, 1964-1974: A Decade of Performance describes his artistic development while sharing the stories of his performances over the course of a storied decade and the lyrics to the dozens of songs that populate his self-recorded efforts. It is, in every sense, a remarkable reservoir of craft and creativity.
