San Antonio 05:02
I'd like to see you, see you at home tonight I'd like to see you, see you In the scene that used to follow us I was honest when I said I see you Not to drain or make a power play plus it's not my style In that scene that used to border us With the r's slightly trilled I was honest when I said I see you, I lied about how much I looked All this, Armistice All this, bringing up home Decoding luck as it flows through old pillars I'd like to see you, see you at home tonight I'd like to see you, see you I'd like to see you curt. Direct like a gun/avenues to run/Austin Highway I'd like to see you curt. Asking why/living by the gardens off Broadway I'd like to see you curt. Trinity garages/well read mirages/orbiting I'd like to see you curt. Preaching street lights/waiting for night/Questions bounce/Structures ping All this, Armistice In a long, dark, and cavernous room An intrepid progression calling back, back, back All this, bringing up home decoding luck as it flows through old pillars With eyes on the penultimate city Old pillars guide the flow of serendipity Enriched like the dirt in old, carpeted classrooms Fighting the lid, where are the mids? They've been missing since the '97 boom. Street lights/McNay lights/Rabbit lights
Abilene 06:04
Cattlemen and Chisholm Trail copies This is my friendly frontier counterpoint KACU and student coffees Mason Williams flashpoint In the Garden of the Gospels Beloved guards patiently wait Built around the mesas As if the tablelands could block judgement day Here we are in the Key City The old meets the new atop the red clay The current call it frontiering The venerable protect the old way A railroad divides it down the middle Many roads cut underneath The Philharmonic bolstered by the fiddle Pioneers and clinched teeth
Cleburne 04:16
Driving up 171 to a big old pain that never died A thirst never quelled rides the margins of an otherwise Meticulously quilted fabric in the seat of Johnson County Where those who are left still pray for God's bounty Holding on through booms dancing with pink slips Crestwood a lesson that work's pro tempore Santa Fe rails to P.O.W. pails and 60's era press clips The old courthouse square has quite the story March 13th arrived, relatives cried as we Tried to give our last goodbye Old hurt never sold, so the moment revolved around A nervous red suit and velvet tie Holding on through boasts of past pink slips I glanced over at Leon during the legal revelry He looked at her eyes pictured on memorial cards and clips and held on Teaching lessons as he always did
Lubbock 04:22
Wind turbines/ Stail air on the return Reinforced coffee/ Introduce McCormicks throat burn Bright House/ The Maverick/ Earn/ 2205 Bledsoe relief/ Trips/ Strip hard to come by 88.1 Strong Influence/Wrong song Stacks and Billings/ Dry skin High Plains/ Cotton Gin Going the way down Going way down Slide Couldn't get the focus Everything constricts Could only earn about an hour Couldn't make it upstate Couldn't get the focusrite to Ryan Everything constricts Could only be there for an hour, so Hardy's out No blame, no waste The scissor tail moves on Oil derricks/Hub Electric/Heat Lightning carries on
Austin 04:48 video
Dreams of the city Dreams of what's pretty So you dream of Austin? Planning violet hello's? Don't confuse what you want With something that is So we're talking Austin Know the Austin Hello? Won't defuse what you want? For something that is? Feel the pull to Austin? Daydreaming bricks of yellow? Follow that wonder that your heroes taught? Use those lessons that your authors bought Now you've come to Austin? Receive an Austin Hello? Will the wild faze you into cloudy wants? Rent Increases/ Nativist taunts Transplanted now in Austin Learning Granite Hello's Hurry up and wait Three jobs and you're late Dreaming live in Austin Glitzy Hairy Hello's Fire up the cans/ Check the sounds Hear the echoes from the last round Dreaming live in Austin Causing you to mellow? Shade vs shadows dancing downtown See the echoes from the last round? What a thing this dream of Austin Will you resist new Hello's? Now protecting what you want And defining what is


"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.

"Home" is a guitar-centric blend of memory and research into the soundmarks that form one's concept of shelter. It is a mix of the subjective and objective, looking to expand on how we define home with this songwriter's attempt.


released January 1, 2020

Home was written and produced in 2019 by Travis Pope to serve as a time capsule for later years.
Recorded, Mixed, and Mastered by Evan Kleinecke at 5th Street Studios in Austin, Texas.
-Assisted by the capable interns Jacob, Leon, and Carlo
