Mavis Guitar began as a tribute to Travis' beloved Boston Terrier, Mavis. With the help of Joe Mitchell they created Louisville Via Boston. The band continues to serve as a meditation on the balance between artistic lifestyles and typical days. Porch Songs is a reflection on family life and raising children with a love of music and art as a shared experience.
