Editors’ Notes

Fran Healy is the lead singer of Travis, a band noted for the luminous beauty of its lead singer’s voice. For his first solo album, Healy plays most of the instruments himself, including drums. He invites Paul McCartney to play bass on the pleasantly orchestrated “As It Comes” and Neko Case contributes vocals to “Sing Me to Sleep.” Those combinations are noteworthy, but that isn’t to suggest Healy can’t handle it alone. This entire album is filled with the kind of trusty melodies that have made Travis one of the past decade’s finest bands. “Fly In the Ointment” is insistently catchy. “Buttercups” features an aching vocal that retells the story of a young Healy unable to afford buying flowers for his girlfriend. “In the Morning” turns to Healy’s darker side with a tension that is often buried by the joy of guitars. “Shadow Boxing,” with fiddle from Tom Hobden of Noah and the Whale and some elliptical piano notes, makes for an autumnal toss into memory lost and found. Healy, with and without band, is a formidable talent.

Customer Reviews

Fran Healy is a god!!!

It's just to bad there arnt enough travis fans in the world or people who care because this man is in his song writting prime. truly best album of this year! Anything is beautiful well moonshine you just can't deny dancing to. While at the same time Fly in the oitment is for you fans who love the rough songs. Truly an amazing album by the one of the worlds greatest songwritters and singers. Go Fran!!!!!!!

No surprise this is an amazing album

It is one of the truly curious facts of the music business that certain artists "make it" while others remain relatively "unknown", depsite being hailed by other musicians as gifted. Coldplay's Chris Martin ( no slouch of a songwriter) once called himself a poor man's Fran Healy. I have followed Travis for years and have every albmum they have put out. I can play them all and there is no repetition nor anyhting boring about any of the music. There is no limit, it seems, to Healy's musical imagination.

This album is a collection of material which is personal , thoughtful and beautiful to listen to.

Get the album- you won't be disappointed.

wow what a revelation

never heard of this guy before. He's amazing!
