Hello! This is The Carl King Podcast, and I am Carl King talking.
First announcement: For those who don’t know, I recently started a Patreon account to help fund my creative projects, like this podcast. I’m posting music instructional videos, music stems, demo mixes, transcriptions, and behind the scenes crap for whatever I happen to be working on. So if you wanna fund this stuff, head over to patreon.com/carlking
Most of the music stuff I do makes zero profit, and I actually lose money. So I’m hoping Patreon will help solve that.
Second announcement: My new album, Grand Architects of the Universe has been released. Guests include Dweezil Zappa, Mike Keneally, Virgil Donati, Marco Minnemann, Thomas Lang, Morgan Agren, and today’s podcast guest, drummer Travis Orbin.
I first found out about Travis Orbin because I Googled myself and he had a quote from Sir Millard Mulch on his website. I watched some of his videos on YouTube and I was super impressed. I especially enjoyed his cover of Pig, from Steve Vai’s Sex & Religion album.
Anyway, Travis played the majority of the drum tracks on my Grand Architects of the Universe album, so go listen to that. You can find it on Shop.CarlKingdom.com.
So here we go. Interview with Travis Orbin.
