BITTERS & DISTRACTIONS are an acoustic punk rock duo from New York, as well as both husbands with kids, Jeremy & Travis write tunes that they self-classify as "hobo-rock".
After years of touring the country with his former band, The Goodwill, which consisted of releasing albums nationwide and touring with and opening for bands such as My Chemical Romance, Fallout Boy, AFI, The All-American Rejects, fellow Long Islanders Taking Back Sunday and Brand New, Travis started a band with his sister called We’re All Just Passing Through.
After 6,000+ album downloads for this completely DIY brother/sister duo, coverage on television and in The New York Times, he's started making music with close friend Jeremy Quitko. Their debut EP, Black, was just released and is now available on all digital format.
The two trade back and forth on vocals while at times belting out campfire style gang vocals. The duo sings heavy hearted tunes of past experiences, love, loss, and travels. The two have a knack for writing tunes that you want to sing out at 2am while hammered off your ass. The duo is very reminiscent of folk-punk bands like The Devil Makes Three and Lucero with their realism and ability to tell stories through song.
