Tom Catmull is a word enthusiast. They are the larger part of what makes his world go round. He’s spent the last twenty-five years in his adopted hometown of Missoula, MT presenting words in ways to make them as alluring as possible to people who crave such things. The tricks useful to achieving this feat include infectious melody, thoughtful arrangement, storytelling, some finger picking and a clean shirt. The last couple of decades have included seven full length albums, a few television appearances (Montana PBS 11th and Grant), a hundred theaters performances (The Wilma, The Rex, The Roxy, The Dennison, etc), dozens of festivals, countless honkytonks and two ridiculously fun national anthems. He’s been the supporting act for Robert Earl Keen, Charlie Musselwhite, Junior Brown, Asleep at the Wheel and a dozen others. There exists some confidence that his roots driven Americana songs are worthy of your time. Don’t be fooled, though. The acoustic guitar, harmonica and hat are just cheap ploys to get the words out in front of you.
Travis Yost aka “Love is a Dog from Nebraska” is a musician, engineer and producer from Missoula, Montana. He has performed all over the west, solo and also with Close, But No Seger, Tom Catmull, Stellarondo, The Glass Spiders, and Faster Rabbit. Travis was a recent guest musician on Eric Funk’s 11th and Grant show on Montana PBS, played at the Red Ants Pants Festival, and has shared the stage with James McMurtry, Alejandro Escovedo, The Decemberists, The Lumineers, Jason Spooner, Martin Sexton, Wartime Blues, Sallie Ford, Jason Isbell, Dale Watson, and Brandi Carlile to name just a few.
What does “Love is a Dog from Nebraska” sound like?
Americana is an easy starting point. But, it is a little dreamier, with a pop music sensibility. Sometimes it’s a sad lullaby. Other times it swings wildly into rowdy aggressive story telling. The influences include, Wilco, Spoon, Cake, Tom Waits, Bob Seger, Tom Catmull, Drunken Prayer, and The Beatles. Listening to Travis tell stories and sing songs might be the only way to truly understand what “Love is a Dog from Nebraska” sounds like. But, Dreamy Pop Americana is a good starting point.
