lastfm fran healy 385x240 Discover: Traviss Fran Healy Uncorks Moonshine

While [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Travis[/lastfm] is on a little break, the band’s lead singer and chief songwriter [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Fran Healy [/lastfm]has kept quite busy. After going cross-country with bandmate Andy Dunlop doing a “history of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Travis[/lastfm]” tour, he then put his time and effort into his first solo album, Wreckorder.

Fans of[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Travis [/lastfm]should immediately dig this record. The first time we heard it back in August we had five favorites. After seeing him live, opening up for [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Keane[/lastfm] in Brooklyn on the waterfront a few weeks after that, we gravitated towards a few other songs as well.

In Fran’s interview he tells us how he got [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Neko Case [/lastfm]and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Paul McCartney [/lastfm]to appear on the record, and of course we also talk about [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Travis[/lastfm]. Then listen to him perform “Moonshine” live in our studio.

“Moonshine” live at Discover. Discover interview with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Fran Healy [/lastfm](Part 1) Discover interview with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Fran Healy[/lastfm] (Part 2)
