We always pay particular attention to releases on the Air House label because every band/artist always seems to hit the target. They've got another bull's eye on their hands here. Trading A Dream presents eleven intelligent guitar-based pop/rock songs with a different overall sound and style. The band The Travel Guide has been around since 2010 and is comprised of Thayne Coleman, William Erickson, Kristyn Chapman, and Caleb Drummond. We love cool guitars...and this album is chock full of 'em

Dynamically brilliant, Americana music can at times try too hard to invoke feelings through the compositions. When done right, the music shies close to powerful ballads detailing the troubles of everyday life with shining guitars and battering drums. The Travel Guide stretch their soundscape to the max on Trading A Dream. The group believes the record is more about inking this chapter into an archive and they could not be more right in their intention.
Wichita’s The Travel Guide has spent the last few years in the studio honing eleven songs for its new album Trading A Dream. The band’s guitarist and vocalist Thayne Coleman says that the band wanted to create something that improved upon the group’s acclaimed live shows and made many songs that were already longtime fan favorites even better.
Though fans have already heard most of these songs live, Trading a Dream — debut full length from The Travel Guide — is still worth repeat listens. Hearing these ideas under a microscope with honed performances and determined clarity, The Travel Guide make a point of how serious this release is. Those who want a first taste of this Air House Records release you can get Trading a Dream at the release party, December 26, at Barleycorn's.
It's the most wonderful time of the year for a post-Christmas album release extravaganza. Come celebrate with us.
