Biography

Travis Morrison (born 1972) is an American musician from the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., USA.

After picking up various instruments around age 12, Morrison stuck with guitar and began forming bands throughout his high school days at Lake Braddock Secondary School in Fairfax County, Virginia. The problem he kept running into with his high school bands was keeping a drummer. It didn’t help that his mother didn’t want him to ever play the drums due to all the noise it would make in the house. He was on Lake Braddock’s Math Team and claimed to be “pathetically happy” upon defeating the math team of Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology one year.

After “getting out of Fairfax” he attended The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia for three years before dropping out to pursue a band. He worked at the campus radio station WCWM, which he claimed was “was worth tuition right there.” At WCWM he became well versed in all types of music, “from John Coltrane to German art rock.” He continues to have an incredibly wide ranging musical taste to this very day, having claimed to enjoy everything from Britney Spears, Gladys Knight, XTC, Fugazi, Ludacris, and go go.

In 1993, Morrison formed a band with some old Lake Braddock friends. The band was called The Dismemberment Plan. Despite his mother’s initial reluctance, the band practiced in bassist Eric Axelson’s basement frequently and began playing shows.
