New Portland electro musician Travis Royce, 22, releases songs featuring catchy tunes, clever lyrics and inner demons. "Immediately about hearing Travis' music, it becomes clear he has something special," says Marc S. Boriosi, a member of the Recording Academy and a principal for A Dying Breed LLC, an artist management and development company. "As an artist, performer and songwriter, Travis Royce's stock is most assuredly on the rise."

Electro Artist Travis Royce

He possesses the talent, charisma, musicality and at times sense of humor that will set him apart from other musicians of the genre. His style is smooth and his melodies are as unique and playful as they are memorable.

In “Machine,” one of Travis Royce’s new songs, he laments, “I really want to shine in the spotlight/ But I’m too Spock-like to play Shatner.”

For those who aren’t Trekkies, Royce means, “I’m too geeky to play the leading man.” But Royce, 22, whose new website, http://www.tmcroyce.com, features his electro/hip-hop music, is no geek, The artist writes his own songs, produces his own music, mixes it, sings and raps.

"Immediately upon hearing Travis’ music, it becomes clear that he has something special," says Marc S. Boriosi, a member of The Recording Academy, the principal for A Dying Breed LLC, an artist management and development company and an A&R consultant to various record labels and media companies. "He possesses the talent, charisma, musicality and at times sense of humor that will set him apart from other musicians of the genre. His style is smooth and his melodies are as unique and playful as they are memorable. As an artist, performer and songwriter, Travis Royce’s stock is most assuredly on the rise.”

The next step for Royce, from Portland, Ore., is acting, says Michael David McGuire, executive producer of a development team in New York that for 20 years has helped performers break into TV and film.

“In addition to his incredible musical talent, I see young Travis Royce as a classic triple threat,” says McGuire, who has helped young actors make it to the top levels of the industry. “He’s good-looking, he can sing, and he has great acting potential. Travis is one of the most talented young new actors I’ve seen.”

Royce also plans to use his acting skills in electro music videos that showcase his songs, which feature catchy tunes, clever lyrics, and Royce’s inner struggles.

“Travis has all the ingredients of a future hit maker: the passion, the skills, the vision and the sound,” says Megalosdon, a Los Angeles emcee and producer.

Royce’s latest songs include “Machine,” which Portland DJs are playing in local clubs. Says “DJ Dan” Kinto of The Fix in Portland about the song, “A major club dance hit from the local Portland artist... Definitely looking forward to more work from this artist in the club scene.”

Also new from Royce is the can’t-get-it-out-of-your head dance song, “Dreamin’,” which, like “Machine,” features singer Ryan Elizabeth; the more serious “Never,” about the role of writing in Royce’s life; and the tongue-in-cheek “JegginGirl.”
