In 1996, Fran Healy (singer and guitarist) form the group Glass
Onion with Neil Primerose(beater), Andy Dunlop (guitarist and
chorus), and two other boys whom it will replace by Dougie Payne
(bass player and chorus). They re-elect the Travis group, sign
a contract at Sony and leave their Glasgow native for London.
Their first individual "All I want to C is Rock" makes
speak about him, the group then makes its entry in the press
people. Their first individual "Good Feeling" leaves
in September 1997 and is placed directly in signal 10 of the
British charts. The group thus allured Great Britain with its
soft melodies, its splendid texts and the Scottish voice most
sensual to interpret them.
Travis records "The Invisible Band" in Los Angeles
with Nigel Godrich. This new album full with freshness remains
faithful to the style of the group, although it is sophisticated
more. Their envoûtante music A conquered the whole world
by its simplicity and its softness.
they sell 4 million album with "The Man Who" and gains
Brit Award in 2000 for the best album and as a better group.
A dedication which has occurred after a one year round to RU
the thus qu’aux USA (in first part of Oasis).
Healy was born on July 23 1973 with the neighbourhoods from
stafford. As of the 5 years age, Fran wanted of glory and a
great ambition, it wanted to become a Rock'n'roll Star. Held
bet, 2 years later it gains a contest of song.
The charming singer take his revenge on the rough ones which
martyrisaient it with l’école primary education,
and their sending a large F *** "I walked as if I had neon
flickering above me who said" Odd "they used it to
follow me to the house and to strike me..." known as Francis.
It met Dougie and Andy at the School of Art of Glasgow and Neil
in Horseshoe Bar.
Payne was born in Glasgow on November 14, 1972. With the 3 years
age, it falls of a wall and becomes amnesic.
Francis proposes to him to form part of entant the Travis group
that bass player whereas it had never touched one of his life
Dunlop was born in Glasgow on March 16, 1972. It grows in Lenzie
in the north of Glasgow or it takes the courses of piano and
guitar. It took part in a contest for young talent, or it failed
but it takes its revenge during the summer 1999 when Travis
invites it "to scrape" in Newquay Cornwall with the
foot of the Headland hotel.
Primerose, oldest from the group was born on February 20, 1972
in Cumberauld, in Glasgow. His/her father was a powerful engineer,
this is why the first 10 years of the life of small Neil marked
only of international voyages. He learns how to play of the
battery at the side of Ronnie one of his friends. He also has
another passion, swimming. Who was worth a stop of several months
to the group following an accident which nailed it in a wheel
chair. The doctor of the beater predicts a paralysis with life
then to him. But Neil does not hear it this ear, after a few
weeks, it takes again its rods and rejoue, with the great happiness
of its fellow-members and of the public. It thus goes back quickly
on foot and the history of the group is far from being finished
