  • SMART man, no hype, look at the numbers. Much respect! Yes, don’t ride the emotions. It’s not an easy task. “Give me an honest person” Inspirational.

    Jack Stack’s is top notch BBQ.

    Travis hit the money on every topic in that interview. Whoever edited that interview though, could have done a better job in a few seconds using pro tools or adobe audition to make it sound more professional…but whatever…

    In my personal opinion I think Strange is weak on the merchandise front. I think they need to hire some brand new talent to come up with better designs and better catch phrases. Plus I think they should start some more limited premium collectors merchandise to go along with their new releases and for competitions to further excite the fans and generate more buzz.

    I could go on and it’s just my opinion but I think in terms of marketing and merchandise Strange could be taking it to the next level.

  • King Mystery

    From the interview, Travis is the most realest person in the music industry right now. Everything he says, true ass hell. The industry is gonna have to deal with the fact that these independent rec labels are what the people are going to start listening to. Underground tallent is coming to the top and we never gonna stop until we run it.. Even then still striving for more cuz theres no ceiling in this independent warehouse…The sky’s the limit and up is the direction we accelerate…Much Love to Strange Music From, King Mystery!

    Ya’ll the greatest and music is our life!!
