Description: if the sound of throwing yourself off of a cliff could be heard
Profile: it would be hard to compose an essay to convey the idea of heat while standing naked in an igloo. however, if one were to try, it would surely reek of an unparalleled and quite unfulfilled desire for the faintest touch of warm air. operating within a very similar set of circumstances and under the assumed name the labors of sisyphus, travis gerke composes songs offering a vain hope for wishes come true, storybook relationships, sunny days and happy endings; utilizing poignantly hearfelt lyrics over a backdrop of flawlessly orchestrated acoustic guitars and piano.
as a former member of the pop-punk band sloppy meateaters, travis was able to add a nation-spanning tour as well as performances on the usa network and the warped tour to his musical resume; however he has since opted to funnel all of his efforts into creating a musical statement more genuine and passionately indelible than previous endeavors - a feat that he well-surpassed in the release of his debut full-length "a recurring theme of failure." the follow-up ep, "two points, a cast, and the whore" is a concept album exploring sexual and physical addiction with blunt and often severe lyrical honesty. travis currently resides in gainesville, florida, where in between live performances he can be found hard at work on a third album, "the greatest salesman."
