[MUSIC VIDEO] TRAV B RYAN – “NO HOME” | @travbryanmusic

East Coast Recording Artist, Trav B. Ryan releases the visual to his latest song “No Home”

Trav B RyanWhen an artist makes some noise, the entire industry takes notes. This speaks the truth for the independent artist, Trav B. Ryan. Hip-Hop artist, Trav grew up in Brooklyn, NY in a single-parent household with his brother in prison for life, and his stepfather murdered when he was 13. He grew up the third out of four children. His biological Haitian dad abandoned them for another family and ends up being deported. The introverted Trav kept to himself mostly. Barely having any friends, He kept his head in a comic book or fixed in front of a tv watching animated superheroes prevail over the common foe. He envied to have a superpower that would make him special-something that would make him a hero, in his little world. 

To cope with his daily life, Trav began to write. It helped him fight his pain, depression, and anxiety. Continuously, he wrote – song after song- until those four walls in his mom’s one-bedroom apartment turned into a rocket ship to the moon, and Trav turned into the super-powered Captain.

“Everybody got the same song, I’m going to sing mine on a high note”~ Trav B. Ryan

In a blink of an eye, he is now a major artist and major influencer in the Hip-Hop industry and so-called “nerd” culture with features on MSNBC, Comicbook.com, Time Magazine, Complex, Entertainment Weekly, and News12 Brooklyn. However, for Trav, this is just the beginning of his epic saga. His powers are still in its infancy.

The “No Home” song is inspired by the hit show- ‘The Mandalorian’. It tackles the subject of abandoning your beliefs and your code to find yourself. It touches on the topics of destruction and growth, all wrapped in an inspirational and emotional sound. Be sure to connect with Trav B. Ryan on all social media and digital music platforms.
