Bio

A multi-cultural musical experience fusing Gypsy, Middle Eastern, Celtic, Greek and Turkish styles with Rock.

Band leader Scott Jeffers has traveled extensively through foreign lands to gather inspiration for the Traveler project. Composing most of his songs while surrounded by the people, sounds, sights, smells and landscape of these faraway places brings a true authenticity to the fusion.

Traveler’s sound is an innovative, new fusion of World Music and Rock. Using traditional ethnic instruments combined with all the power of a full blown rock band, their performances are intense, exotic and adrenaline-driven.

Scott Jeffer’s is composer and band leader. His own Lebanese heritage and American upbringing has inspired his vision to fuse elements of ancient ethnic music with rock.

He has traveled extensively through foreign lands to gather inspiration for the Traveler project. Composing most of his songs while surrounded by the people, sounds, sights, smells and landscape of these far away places brings a true authenticity to the fusion. Known for his fiery and passionate violin and vocal performances, Scott’s commanding presence onstage adds to the trademark power of the live Traveler shows. He also brings traditional instruments from his journeys to the stage; Bouzouki,a traditional Greek stringed instrument and an Arabic Oud, an ancient predecessor to the guitar.

The real magic of a Traveler show is in the connection they make with the audience. They give a high energy , passionate performance that draws the audience in, perhaps by the combination of the cultural connection people have to the ethnic sounds of their own heritage and this music that is so unique. For whatever reason, people are always moved to their feet, and drawn closer to the stage to be part of the experience.

Traveler spent the last summers headlining festivals in Alaska, Montana, Texas, Utah, Colorado, Canada and Turkey.

They also perform regularly in Arizona, where the band is based.
