Growing up in Lubbock, TX, Travis Garland was exposed to the arts at a very young age. He started off singing & acting in plays at his church and went on to attend the School For The Performing Arts in junior high where he received extensive training in music & theater. After winning a nationwide acting competition at 14 Garland relocated to Los Angeles where he signed with a manager & agent. He began going on auditions during the day but spent his nights developing his songwriting, and after a chance meeting with a friend from Dallas he was asked to join the pop group, Not Like Them.
Fast forward to a few years later, and NLT was signed to a major label deal working under the direction of Geffen Records Chairman Ron Fair. With Travis as the frontman & one of the lead singers, NLT was put in the studio to collaborate with top producers & songwriters including Pharrell, Ne-Yo & Ryan Tedder. The group opened on tour for The Pussycat Dolls and gained a small, but loyal, fan following. In 2007 NLT released their Timbaland-produced single "She Said, I Said" and scored themselves their first Top 40 Hit. They continued to tour, and caused a female fan girl frenzy headlining a national House of Blues tour aptly titled "Bandemonium". When the group eventually parted ways to pursue individual opportunities Travis shifted his focus back to songwriting, only this time for a solo album.
Currently, Garland is back in the studio recording his as-yet-untitled debut album for Interscope Records under the familiar direction of Fair. To give him a unique urban pop sound, visionary producer Nate "Danja" Hills (Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado, Britney Spears) has signed on to produce the record. Garland will be writing or co-writing the majority of the album's tracks himself.
Travis' debut is slated for release later this year but first single "Believe" is about to take over the airwaves. With a strong team of collaborators behind him, and the endorsement of Perez Hilton himself, Garland hopes to come out with a bang and make a lasting impression on the music business in 2010.
Thomas Fiss is a MTV Buzzworthy, MTV Freshman & VEVO featured artist.
His latest EP release, CHASING SATELLITES, debuted in the top 100 on iTunes & continues to gain major exposure. An independent musician based in Los Angeles, Thomas has been touring nationally in support of CHASING SATELLITES at top 40 radio with major acts The Wanted, Karmin, Cobra Starship & Cher Lloyd.
Thomas describes his music and live show as a "more pop version of One Republic". His catchy top 40 melodies backed by alternative instrumentation makes for a game changing combination. Ryan Seacrest couldn't agree more when he featured Thomas and said "He is someone you'll want to keep on your radar!"

Dylan Chambers is an accomplished singer, songwriter, and thespian (Troupe 3709), out of Arlington, Texas. He has been performing on stage since the age of five in many different fields. He first picked up the guitar at the age of thirteen after being inspired by the fast-driven music of Green Day and seeing his stepfather play around the house. He really started appreciating theatre and the joy that it gave him to be on stage when he came to Theatre Arlington, a local community theatre in Texas, joining the cast of "Oliver!"as the lead role, Oliver Twist. Later on, he joined TA's youth touring group "Standing Room Only" for three years performing well over two-hundred times for many different faces in Texas. In 2005, Dylan joined The Political Monkeys, a punk/funk/rock n' roll band as the frontman/rhythem guitarist playing numerous gigs in North East, Texas. Two years later, he quit the band and moved on to collaborate with other musicians such as Scott Hoying ("What is Wrong?") Alex Hardaway ("The Negative Blues"), Connor Lidell ("On The Way Back"), Paul Demer from Second Story Feedback, Mitch Grassi and many others. Dylan then moved on to starting his own band with two friends from Lamar HS. The Dylan Chambers Band played many shows around the Metroplex as well as headlining at the Levitt Pavilion in Downtown Arlington after winning first place in Arlington's Virtual Battle of the Bands contest. Since the band broke up, Dylan has been playing around as a solo acoustic musician. Over the past few years, he has gained quite a following from playing at the Levitt Pavilion. He was featured as one of four local singer/songwriters in their "Hometown Rising Stars" concert and even opened for the legendary Three Dog Night during the summer of 2010.
On the personal side, Dylan graduated from James Martin High School in 2010. He was accepted into the Berklee College of Music in Boston (Alumni: John Mayer, Quincy Jones, Dream Theater, Diana Krall, etc.) where he was one of fifteen musicians in the US to be accepted into the songwriting, guitar and performance program. Unfortunately, it was a little to expensive so he will be moving to Austin in January of '11 to start breaking his way into the music scene down there. Dylan continues to contribute to the world by sharing his music to anyone who is willing to listen.
