All of Sound Travel’s music is original. They have appeared all over WA State, in Idaho and in British Columbia.
Sound Travel consists of Stephen Talley on guitars and Carol Smith on keyboard/synthesizer. Stephen has background in Hawaiian and Rock/Pop music. He grew up in Hawaii and was saturated in the Islands’ musical traditions. He discovered the music of The Ventures, Chet Atkins and others at an early age and after learning to play ukulele and guitar, developed his own covers of many popular songs. He started writing his own original music in 1976.
Of Stephen’s music, one fan wrote, “Stephen has discovered how to reach into the subtleties of the guitar and music itself and find what lies behind the mechanics, to evoke the Spirit in all of us through his artistry.”
Carol comes from a more classical musical background. As a child, her mother exposed her to great classical music. She took piano lessons and sang in choirs. Later in life, she studied music theory and performed in a Community College early music group for 8 years, playing instruments such as recorder, viola da gamba, harp and psaltery. She has been writing original music for most of her adult life.
SOUND TRAVEL’s music could be described as New Age, World Music, or Folk. But Stephen & Carol prefer to call it “Inner Dimensional” music. They employ interweaving melodies,
harmonies and rhythms to create their unique compositions.
SOUND TRAVEL’s music is evocative of time, place and emotion. Where you go on their musical current is up to you. Your imagination is your vessel!
