“Home” is the second studio effort from Music Of 25, a collection of projects by an Austin/TX based songwriter named Travis Pope. This sophomore release expands on it’s predecessor’s dedication to concept with five detailed songs about the songwriter’s five homes: San Antonio, Abilene, Cleburne, Lubbock, and Austin. Each song was composed in it’s respective city, features musicians relative to that location, and was recorded in Austin/TX @5th Street Studios.
Austin is the first song from “Home”, Music Of 25’s new studio effort out 1/1/2020. In a detailed look at five locations around Texas, “Home” attempts to define itself. With a talented group of players, a songwriter based out of the Texas capital filters the Violet Crown.
