Go To KTC Store

First of all, thank you for all the questions…I honestly had no clue it would be this crazy haha but I did want to let you guys into my life a little bit.  Hopefully after this you’ll understand my music much better than you did before.  I did this because I love you guys.

I’ll separate the answers by categories to make it easier to find the answer to your question :)

here we go:

-ABOUT ME-

My full name is Travis Randall Clark

————————————————

I was born on April 24, 1985 in Bradenton, Florida.

————————————————

I’m 6’1” and 6’2” when my hair is sticking up.  I have Blue eyes and Red hair.

————————————————

I have an older sister and a younger brother, yes they both have red hair :)  I try to stay as close as I can with them while I’m on the road, but actually I probably get to see them more now because they live in New York City and Nashville.

————————————————

I’m 50% Irish and 50% Scottish.

————————————————

I am right handed.

————————————————

I’m a Dreamer.

————————————————

-BAND STUFF-

I started writing music when I was 9 years old and really never imagined doing anything else.  But I guess if I had to choose something else to do, I would probably use my A.D.D. and be a writer or an inventor.

————————————————

I started playing piano when I was 4 years old and guitar when I was 12.  Yes, I can read a little bit of sheet music.

————————————————

My parents always supported my musical career.

————————————————

My favorite bands growing up and still are:  The Beatles, Blink 182, Jimmy Eat World, and Coldplay.  They definitely influence my writing a ton!

————————————————

I am the song writer in the band, and all the lyrics are written about real life experiences, relationships, hometowns, family and friends.

————————————————

I play Fender, Taylor, Martin, and Gibson Guitars.  

————————————————

I get extremely nervous before I play on stage.  I hope it doesn’t go away because I love the feeling of being excited to play.

————————————————

The first time I heard a We The Kings song on the radio, I screamed like a little girl.  I had the biggest smile on my face for the longest time.  Even when I hear it now I get the same way.

————————————————

I taught myself how to play guitar.

————————————————

Warped Tour was my favorite/best tour I’ve ever been on.  We’re not on the first half of it because we’ll be recording our new CD!!

————————————————

It’s hard to say which song means the most to me on our record, it would be like choosing which kid is your favorite you know?  Maybe it’s because every song I write means everything to me.

————————————————

We The Kings was formed just by us being friends and being decent at playing instruments together.  I don’t think we ever thought we’d really make it this far, but we really do love it!

————————————————

We The Kings was named after our Middle School where we all met as kids so it’s kind of a sentimental name.  The school was called King Middle School.

————————————————

I’ve written 25 new songs for the new record within the past year or so and I’m hoping to release them on our 2nd record this August or September!

————————————————

My first show ever was a high school talent show, I wrote a blog about it a couple weeks ago if you want to check it out :) I even posted some old songs.

————————————————

My guilty pleasure:  When I was in Elementary school me and my friend would sing the Mariah Carey and Boyz 2 Men song “One Sweet Day” and we would fight over who got to sing her part…definitely one of the most embarrassing moments in my life!

————————————————

My music has changed a lot as I’ve grown up but it all comes from the heart so it that sense it’s all the same!

————————————————

The best prank I’ve ever pulled on any band on tour was throwing 185 frozen hot dogs at Cobra Starship on their last song on the last day of tour.  It was amazing, you should have seen the welts we left :)  Now that I think about it, it’s not really a prank, more like assault!

————————————————

I love meeting fans at shows, it never gets old or annoying.  Even if I’m having the worst day ever, it cheers me up to be surrounded by people who love me.

————————————————

I love every band that we tour with, they are all amazing people and incredible musicians so don’t believe everything you read on the internet :)

————————————————

The advice I would give to any aspiring band, artist, or anybody for that matter is to do what you love and do it for the right reasons, be consistent and don’t ever stop trying even if you are 90 years old, to know you tried your whole life at something you loved doing is the definition of success to me.  Therefore you would succeed.

————————————————

The moment I knew We The Kings was going to be something big and special was the day we were walking through the Houston Airport and a bunch of people started screaming “We The Kings” at us and running to catch up with us.  Security came and escorted us through the airport because they said we were causing a “panic.”  It was definitely one of the coolest feelings ever.

————————————————

A bunch of songs make me feel different ways.  I’ve heard a few songs that have made me tear up and ones that have made me laugh, I think everyone is different and experiences songs in a completely unique way.  I will tell you that I want to give people goosebumps with our new record.

————————————————

It’s really expensive to travel overseas to play music but we are working as much as we can to try and get over there.  Hopefully it will be this year!

————————————————

Yes, I want to do music forever and ever!!!  One thing I can promise everybody is that NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS IN MY LIFE, I WILL ALWAYS MAKE MUSIC FOR PEOPLE TO LISTEN TO!

————————————————

-HIGH SCHOOL-MIDDLE SCHOOL-ELEMENTARY SCHOOL-

I was the class clown type in high school, I was good with girls but always got caught in the friend zone :/

————————————————

I got A’s and B’s with the occasional C probably because I never did homework and usually copied it right before class waiting for the teacher to ask us to turn in our papers.  

————————————————

I played freshman football and got absolutely clobbered by bigger kids…I only played because all of my friends wanted me to.  I remember they would make me stand in a circle and go head to head with another player just to see who could tackle who, I always lost.

————————————————

I played drums for fun in band class but I wasn’t in the band.

————————————————

I actually liked going to school, not for the classes and stuff, but to hang out with my friends it was kind of like a daily reunion.

————————————————

My favorite subject in school was Marine Biology.

————————————————

I procrastinated all the time in high school, mainly with homework and projects.

————————————————

My senior year of High School I got ‘Most Likely to Become Famous’, haha it’s funny how things work out ;)

————————————————

-FUTURE STUFF-

My all time favorite name is Sebastian so that’s probably what I would name my kid.  Also I like Joey for a girl’s name.

————————————————

I love having fans, I think it’s important that they are also a fan of who I am as a person and not only the music I make.

————————————————

I would love to visit every city in the entire world, hopefully We The Kings will make it big enough to do that!

————————————————

I did get made fun of for having red hair when I was a kid but I just kind of laughed it off and it made me a better person.  It bums me out that people can be that mean that they have to say things about other people to make themselves feel better, try spreading the love instead!

————————————————

-MY FIRST’S-

My first pet was a poodle named Winston….It was the meanest dog to ever live, it would hide under my bed as a kid and when I would reach under to grab him he would bite me.  My parents gave him away to an elderly lady down the street when I was 5 years old, it was probably best.

————————————————

My first job was at a retirement home called Freedom Village serving food to angry old people.

————————————————

The first movie I saw that made me cry was Titanic.  It was the orchestra strings!!! so hard to hold back the tears when you hear them haha.

————————————————

My first memory of anything was riding on the front of my mom’s shopping cart while we were buying groceries and I fell off and knocked out my 2 front teeth.

————————————————

My first kiss was minutes after I was born, my mom kissed me on my forehead :)  but other than that it was at a movie theater when I was 13….It was really, really awkward.  I tried to put my arm around her and she sat down really hard so I moved it.  The whole night was just wayyyy tooo weird!

————————————————

The first song I ever wrote was in 9th grade and it was called ‘Armor of Hope.’  I wrote it while I was at school not paying attention in class.

————————————————

The first time I ever played spin the bottle was in 6th grade at my friend Chad’s house in his parent’s jacuzzi.  We invited the girls over and one thing led to another and just like that the bottle was spinning.

————————————————

My first concert was the Blue Man Group in New York City….it was the most amazing concert ever.

————————————————

My first real girlfriend was Sasha, I had a bunch of 1 week relationships in middle school and high school but none worth mentioning :)

————————————————

I did go to prom with Sasha, it was awesome…she looked wayyyy better than I did.

————————————————

My first band was a band called Broken Image.  It used to be me and my brother and the Thomsen Brothers (Hunter and Drew)  Then we got Danny and changed our name to DeSoto.  Both names were taken and instead of getting sued we changed it to We The Kings.

————————————————

My first car was a 1996 white Ford Ranger.  I bought it for $5,000.  My dad paid for half, cause that was the deal we had.  I worked so many hours at crappy jobs to get that car.

————————————————

My first tour was amazing, it was before our first record came out so it was impossible that people would know our songs and it was with The White Tie Affair and The Cab.

————————————————

-LOVE-

I met Sasha when I was in middle school but we were just friends…secretly I knew I would get her in the long run ;) It took a lot of work, but finally I got her to go out with me.  YES!!!  I remember one time in middle school I went to another school’s dance and I danced with her for the first time ever.  Her boyfriend at the time tried to beat me up and failed :)

————————————————

I’ve only been in love once and it’s obvious who that is!  Although I love everybody, being ‘in love’ is a different story.

————————————————

My first crush that I remember was in Kindergarden and her name was Kara, she was the teacher’s daughter, I used to chase her around the playground during recess!

————————————————

Yes, I did know Sasha before the band got started.

————————————————

Everybody wants a story about Sasha and I….she bought her first car in Miami but needed me to help her drive it back to Bradenton.  I got pulled over going 104 mph in a 70 mph zone.  I almost got taken to jail.

————————————————

Yes, Sasha can sing really really really well, but she gets shy when I ask her to sing for people.

————————————————

Elvis is 5 years old.

————————————————

Yes, I’m a good kisser.

————————————————

I do want red headed children, I think it would be awesome to have a mini me around me at all times!

————————————————

My first date with Sasha was probably at the beach, we like getting take out food and sitting on the back of my jeep and eating it while watching the sunset.  So I would imagine that that kind of date was our first.

————————————————

I think it’s prettier when a girl is natural versus tons of make up.

————————————————

-MY LIFE-

I don’t smoke weed.  Some of my best friends do though and I love them all the same and I don’t judge anybody on the decisions they make.  I have tried it before but didn’t like it and also I don’t want to mess up my singing voice…. hey, you asked for honesty!

————————————————

I’ve never smoked a cigarette in my ENTIRE life, I’ve never even tried one, or even put one in my mouth!!! I hate cigarettes…again I don’t hate people who smoke them, it’s just not for me and never will be :)

————————————————

I think President Obama will be a good leader.  I always think for every election is voting for the lesser of two evils.

————————————————

I love all kinds of writing!

————————————————

I tried drinking beer in high school to “be cool” and thought it tasted like piss, so I really didn’t drink again until I was 20 and it wasn’t beer, it was Red Wine :)…I actually remember one time spiking the fruit punch bowl with a Coors Light at my 15th birthday party…everyone drank it after I told them and acted drunk…it was so stupid haha.

————————————————

I hit puberty really really late… all my friends had deep voices and I was still squeaking in front of girls….it was terrible.

————————————————

I love Florida!!! the only time I’ve hated it was when I was sunburnt, but other than that, Florida is the best!

————————————————

My mom did have breast cancer when I was growing up but has completely recovered from it.  It’s a really tough thing and I feel for anybody going through it.

————————————————

I’m a Christian and I believe in God, whether I’m right about him existing or not is for you and only you to decide based on what you think :)

————————————————

I don’t think I’m any better than anybody else just because I play in a popular band, in fact I look up to every one of my friends that I tour with and think the world of my family, friends, and fans.

————————————————

I love sunscreen which is why I don’t sunburn that often!

————————————————

I don’t miss having a normal life, I love being on tour and meeting new people and seeing new cities everyday.

————————————————

I got the “birds and bees talk” from my Dad when I was in middle school…I think I laughed haha.

————————————————

I’m not allergic to anything that I know of.  That evil hot dog did make me question it though.

————————————————

I hate animal cruelty, mainly because I love animals…I cried once when I was 7 years old because I ran over a frog with my bicycle on accident, I remember thinking that he probably had a family and kids who are gonna miss him.. I seriously beat myself up about it for weeks!

————————————————

I believe that everybody has the right to be happy no matter what marriage law has to be passed.

————————————————

The best thing about being me is getting to see the world and do something I love while traveling.  The worst thing about me is sometimes I care way too much about little stuff and I let it get the best of me.

————————————————

My family is soooo far from normal and I love it!  We do a lot of things together as a family.  They are the reason I want my own family when I’m “grown up.”

————————————————

My relationship with Hunter, Danny, and Drew is more like a brotherhood than anything else.  They’ve stood with me since the start and I couldn’t have done anything without them.

————————————————

I embarrass myself often, it keeps me grounded, I can’t remember all of my embarrassing moments but if you read my previous OSS’s you’ll see a lot of them.

————————————————

I don’t know if I would change anything I’ve done in the past because then I might be a completely different person.  Life is full of ups and downs and of course I would want to change the downs but then it might change the outcome of my life.

————————————————

I’ve been in a few fights growing up lost a few and won a few, I’d much rather be a lover than a fighter!

————————————————

I have a chihuahua named Elvis and a cat named Alaska.

————————————————

I definitely want to have a house that is all green to help save energy.

————————————————

Before I die I would like to go hang gliding or sky diving.

————————————————

When I was 16 years old.

————————————————

-MY HAIR-

My hair is a living breathing thing…even I don’t understand it.  But to clear anything up, No I don’t use any product, sometimes I straighten it to make it longer, but usually just rolling around while I sleep does the trick and makes it look like a lion.  

————————————————

No, I don’t die my hair, I did once in middle school with that Sun In stuff but it turned out terrrrrrible so I never did it again.

————————————————

I figure while I’m young I can have long hair for awhile so I’m not really considering cutting it anytime soon.

————————————————

Yes, sometimes it dreads up in the back and makes it really painful to get out.

————————————————

I would use a comb if I could but it definitely wouldn’t make it through my hair.

————————————————

I cut my hair once every 4 months or so, but not enough to notice.

————————————————

-TATTOOS-

I have a few tattoos and they all mean something special.

————————————————

I have “Love” and “Hope” on my wrists just because I think the world needs more of it.

I have 1985 for the year I was born on my arm.

On my arm I have a painting that my grandfather painted before he passed away of a beach scene with his initials “TLC” in it.  It hung above my bed frame growing up and thought it would be cool to remember it forever.

————————————————

I have a Skeleton Key on the back of my arm with my favorite lyrics “Dear Bradentown, you have been good to me.” around it.  The Mayor of Bradenton gave us the key to the city last year so I wanted to get a tattoo to represent it.  

————————————————

I have 3 orange blossom flowers on my shoulder.  Orange Blossom because it’s the Florida State flower which is where I’m from, and 3 for the 3 special girls in my life….My momma, my sister, and Sasha.

————————————————

My all time favorite album is by the Beatles: The White Album

————————————————
