Scottish band Travis now have their own station on Exclusive Radio.

Formed in Glasgow in 1990, the band took their name from the character Travis Henderson in the film Paris, Texas.

It wasn’t until 1997 that they released their debut album, Good Feeling, but their breakthrough came with the follow-up in 1999, The Man Who. It spent nine weeks at number on the UK Albums Chart. Within four years the album had sold over 2.6 million copies and been certified 9 x platinum.

The release, in 2001, of The Invisible Band matched the success of The Man Who, debuting at number one in the UK and peaking at 39 on the Billboard 200 chart in the US. From these albums came a string of hit singles, including Why Does It Always Rain On Me?, Turn, Coming Around and Sing.

Travis have twice been awarded best band at the BRIT Awards and won the NME Artist of the Year award at their 2000 ceremony. In 2016 were honoured at the Scottish Music Awards for their outstanding contribution to music.  The band is widely said by the media to have paved the way for other bands such as Coldplay to go on to achieve worldwide success throughout the 2000s, particularly with the success of The Man Who.
