NELLIE TIGER TRAVIS BLUES BAND


NELLIE "TIGER" TRAVIS

BLUES BAND

Having performed at BLUE CHICAGO for about the last 10 years Nellie “Tiger” Travis is a Chicago treasure.  Like many Blues singers Nellie Travis's love affair with music began at church in her hometown Mound Bayou, Mississippi. During mid 1980's she sang lead for the Mississippi based group "SSIPP", opening for acts from Dee Dee Warwick to Ray Charles. During this period she also recorded extensively in Memphis under the direction of Ed Townsend.

Since relocating to Chicago in 1992, Nellie has been singing throughout  Chicago, Texas, Ohio, Kentucky, California, Mississippi, New York, Indiana, Tennessee, Virginia, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Having blossomed as a blues force to be reckoned with, Nellie now performs with her own band. She not only is a staple in Chicago, the"Home Of The Blues,”  but also has standing engagements overseas performing in Greece, Germany, Brazil, Italy and Japan.

Nellie released her debut CD in September 2000 titled "I Got It Like That". It was a critically-acclaimed set of mostly original Blues songs.  In the same year she appeared on a Japanese- backed CD featuring Shun Kikuta entitled "Heart & Soul" for Yoshinaga Ichinose M & I Co. Nellie is also featured artist on Biscuit Miller's debut release, lending her vocal talents in a duet called "Let's Go Fishing"
