Breaking into the EDM/Pop world with his traditionally soulful voice, the new release “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” featuring Rapper King Monk features the unique and creative style of producer Eli Stamstad and a first time collaboration with rapper King Monk. Passionately pursuing his craft with pure dedication, commitment and the X – factor talent it takes to stand out from the rest, Travis J. Gandy is at it again. “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” will make you understand Travis as an artist. With a strong vision and ambition to open up a new chapter of his musical career, Travis’ incredible upbeat attitude, motivational songs and positive energy culminate to make him one of the most sought after singers in the business today.
Making a return to the spotlight in 2020 – the amazing single “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” has the energetic singer sounding more inspired than ever before. Designed with bulletproof hooks that hit the mark spot on, the new single delivers Travis’s compelling signature blend of authentic sincerity and genuine love songs. “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” reveals the strength he possesses in being able to share vibrant, honest messages through his songs over time.
When asked about the inspiration behind the new single, Travis fondly smiled and said “The song just sort of came to me shortly after a pretty painful breakup. I was processing all of the emotions and realized that no matter how much it hurt, I was better off without them. The person I thought they were was not who they turned out to be; and I was done with excuses”. Travis was all in with this record. Both he and King Monk deliver identifiably gritty details & personally revealing rhymes – exposing the listener to the battle ground and tough lessons of love. Taking things to the next level, “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” is a seriously unforgettable experience in RnB & Pop. With massive earth-shaking hooks, and beats designed to be turned up, Travis and King Monk’s no-holds – barred approach, along with Eli Stamstad’s commitment to quality production are all stacked up to make the single a worthy repeat record.
The new single is a plus to the much needed RnB & Pop playlists that have suffered in recent years. With his head in the game and his reputation on the line, the explosive bars on “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” are a direct hit. The lyrics in the single are wickedly on point and come with the precision, finesse, and rhythmic flow of a focused singer who puts everything he’s got on everything he does.
