71-Year-Old Hollywood Entrepreneur Travis Edward Pike Is Rocking The Indy Music And Book Publishing Scene
February 24, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsFebruary 24, 2016 - Today, Travis Edward Pike announced plans to return to the Radio-TV talk show circuit to promote his works. In his turn-of-the-century talk shows, Travis was booked as "One of America's Greatest Living Storytellers," and performed excerpts from his award-winning epic narrative rhyme, "Grumpuss." That Grumpuss performance has since been remastered and re-released by Otherworld Cottage Industries in a dual CD, 15th Anniversary Audio Theater Edition.

Last year, Otherworld Cottage arranged for Book Baby to distribute, "Odd Tales and Wonders: 1964-1974 A Decade of Performance," a memoir of Pike's early rock 'n' roll career, generously illustrated with fliers, photos and newspaper clippings from that era, underscoring his live performances in colleges, coffeehouses, concert venues, and even his short-lived stint as music director and house-band leader for a variety show at WBZ-TV, Boston.
For all the acclaim Pike earned for his concert performances, few of his original songs were ever recorded. Now, that's all changed. With the help of his youngest brother and co-producer, Adam Pike, a multi-instrumentalist and recording engineer, Travis has finally recorded his repertoire of New England and Southern California audience favorites.
According to pop music historian, Harvey Kubernik, "One of the pleasures in my music and literary journey has been the ability to spot talent and acknowledge it. As a former A&R man for MCA Records, or as a journalist and author, I've been watching Travis Pike's career for decades."
For fans, podcasters, and talk show hosts, Kubernik and Pike recorded a 7-part, radio-style interview that might indicate that award-winning storyteller, singer-songwriter, and media professional, Travis Edward Pike, may still be "One of America's Greatest Living Storytellers."
Suggested topics of interest are now being formulated to appeal to a variety of audience demographics and will be posted as they become available.
