Travis Thibodeaux

Music Producer
This Louisiana-born singer/songwriter started his musical journey at the age of twelve after writing “Take My Hand” (which would be recorded by Grammy winner Wayne Toups and become a regional standard just a few years later).  By the following year, Thibodaux’s musical destiny was set as he began performing in bands across the Gulf Coast/Southern Louisiana area.
 
By his mid-twenties, Travis would spend several years in Nashville, Tennessee working as a full-time session vocalist and songwriter.
 
It was his work and dedication to professionalism in Nashville that caught the attention of legendary rock performer/songwriter Jonathan Cain of Journey.  In 2015, Travis was hired to be the newest member of Journey’s touring unit, providing background vocals and auxiliary keyboards on stage with some of the biggest icons in rock history:  Jonathan Cain, Neal Schon, Ross Valory, Steve Smith, and Arnel Pineda. Leaving Journey to spend more time with his family and children in 2020 he is excited to be part of the RedStick Records team!
