About this artist

A raw, expressive singer and songwriter, contemporary Christian and gospel artist Travis Greene incorporates several genres into his sound. Following his emergence in 2007, Greene gained wide acclaim, topping the Billboard gospel chart with 2015′s The Hill. The album spawned several Grammy-nominated hits, including “Intentional” and “Made a Way,” the latter of which stayed at number one on the Hot Gospel Songs chart for 13 weeks. After taking home seven Stellar Gospel Awards, Greene earned another Grammy nod for “See the Light” off 2017′s Crossover: Live from Music City. He picked up a fifth Grammy nomination for “Won’t Let Go” from 2019′s Broken Record before returning in 2021 with Oil + Water.
Born in 1984 in Delaware, Travis Montorius Greene was first driven to express himself through music as a youngster following the death of his father. He had a brush with his own mortality as a child when he was pronounced dead after a fall from the fourth floor of a building in Germany. In addition to developing as a musician, Greene worked as a youth pastor and worship director. His first album, The More, appeared in 2007 on his own Greenelight label. Greater strides were made with the Pendulum-issued Stretching Out in 2010; two of its singles, “Prove My Love” and “Still Here,” landed on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart.
He reached number one with both “Intentional” and “Made a Way” from his third album and first for RCA Inspiration, 2015′s The Hill. The Hill went to the top of the gospel albums chart and garnered Greene seven wins at the 2017 Stellar Gospel Music Awards. On the heels of those accolades, he returned with 2017′s Crossover: Live from Music City, another gospel number one. It peaked at number 61 on the Billboard 200, his best placement to that point. It also earned a Grammy nomination for Best Gospel Performance/Song for “See the Light.” Another live recording, Setlist, Vol. 1, arrived in mid-2019 and reached the gospel Top 20.
Still with RCA Inspiration, Greene followed that with his fourth studio album, Broken Record, before the end of 2019. Included on the album was the track “Won’t Let Go,” which earned him another Gospel Performance Grammy nomination. In August 2021, he released the full-length Oil + Water, which featured guest appearances by Anthony Hamilton, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Kierra Sheard, and others. ~ Andy Kellman
