This may be an outrageous statement, but in my honest opinion, I believe that Travis Garland could very well be the next Justin Timberlake. That is if he starts getting the recognition he deserves. Travis is not new on the music scene, as he was part of a boy band called NLT back in the day. This was the very same band as Glee‘s Kevin McHale. Travis didn’t take the same acting route and worked harder on releasing his own music. In 2010, he released his first new song in a while called “Believe”, which I would still consider a perfect radio hit song. A few mixtape releases and many YouTube videos of covers of radio hits later, he has now finally released his first solo self-titled album, Travis Garland. For his releases since “Believe”, his style went from catchy boy band pop music to a much more mature R&B inspired sound, very similar to the current musical styling of Justin Timberlake. It’s highly unlikely that I would ever skip any of his songs if they came on my shuffle mix, they are just that good! Give his music a listen and make the judgement call for yourself, but I think he has a chance.
