Travis Pike Poet, storyteller, singer-songwriter, recording artist, filmmaker, author, and publisher Travis Edward Pike is a Hollywood multi-hyphenate with more than 50 years in and out of show business. His first screen credit was for the title song for Demo Derby, his father’s 28-minute crash-action featurette that opened in Boston in 1964 with Frank Sinatra in Robin and the Seven Hoods, in three other New England theaters with Elvis Presley in Viva Las Vegas, and went on to play on thousands of screen across the USA with The Beatles Hard Day’s Night. That film’s success led to Travis writing ten songs and starring in his father’s 1966 tongue-in-cheek theatrical feature film, Feelin’ Good, in which Travis performed eight of his songs on screen. That film was a box-office flop, and a 45 rpm recording of the “Feelin’ Good” title song, performed by the Monclairs, (winners of the first Massachusetts Jaycees Battle of the Bands), flipside Travis Pike and the Brattle Street East’s recording of “Don’t Hurt Me Again,” were the only songs released from the film until Travis inherited the water-damaged last three reels of Feelin’ Good, and had them restored by Deluxe Labs on Hollywood Way in Burbank, California.  He posted six restored music clips on YouTube that brought it to the attention of State Records in the UK, resulting in two Travis Pike and the Brattle Street East mono, optical soundtrack recordings from Feelin’ Good, “Watch Out Woman” and “The Way That I Need You” released on a vinyl 45 by State Records in the UK, that received a Four Star review in Shindig! magazine and went on to be listed #3 in Shindig! magazine’s “Best of 2017” December issue.
