Travis Howard

I‘m a Georgia-born songwriter and producer who found respite from a lot of Southern guilt in Los Angeles. I was 26 when I got to East Hollywood. I felt like such a misfit until I started writing songs. Suddenly everybody wanted to hear my story. Because it was everybody’s story.

I started my career writing country hits with Miranda Lambert and ended up working some with Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban, Waylon Payne, Brooks & Dunn and Reba. And working from LA, of course I’ve had
a lot lot lot of film and TV cuts. (The same song ended up on Queer Eye and Death Wish…what!)

Just before the pandemic I was music producer for the FOX show Filthy Rich. Right after that I teamed up
with Danny Myrick to produce the first album of comic actor Leslie Jordan – an all-star album of duets
(Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, Eddie Vedder, Dolly Parton, TJ Osborne and more more more) called Company’s Comin’. I have a lot of friends in this business. There’s all kinds. There’s the broody ones and the corny ones. There’s artsy ones and the ones that can clean sweat copper pipe. But I’ll tell you this, there is not one man standing more grateful than me for these adventures I’ve been allowed. Hey.
