From Traylor's website:
“If you’re a stranger to the big-grin, down-to-earth atmosphere that Kip Traylor can generate, I highly recommend you get acquainted” (Pensacola News Journal 3/28/08). After signing with independent production company GMIM inc. she is releasing her third studio album “A Lot of Life to Live”. In this album Kip brings sadness, sexiness, anger, love and hope to the listener. “I wrote from my experiences over the past five years and before I knew it this album had become a living, breathing being on its own” Kip explains. The album is a mix between blues, jazz and a little bit of singer/songwriter, with strong harmonies as well as guitar and will be in select Wal-mart and Best Buy stores with its release in August 2012.
In 2005 only after a year of playing in public Kip Traylor along with duo partner Clint Darby went from being named "Montgomery's best kept secret" (Montgomery Advertiser 3/24/05) to being voted the Best Local Club Act of 2005 (Montgomery Advertiser 12/28/05). Kip also competed solo in the "premiere live music venue for singer/songwriter's in the southeast," Eddie's Attic open mic in July 2007, winning the competition and securing her a spot in the "Eddie's Attic Shootout". During 2006, Kip wrote and recorded her first E.P. as well as completed three regional tours immediately gaining fans. Her first acoustic album "The Live Sessions" was released in August of 2008 and her first full band album “Beautiful Accident” was released in September 2010.
Kip has been compared to artists such as Adele and Susan Tedeschi and her influences range from artists such as Etta James, Norah Jones, John Mayer and Dave Matthews and are reflected in her writing, lead vocals and rhythm guitar. "I truly believe in the passion of music, the influences I've had growing up seem to come out more and more the further I dig into what I want to do, which is make music," Kip explains, "I want to move people they way that music moves me, that is my definition of success in this business". Traylor is quickly growing beyond her local scene, averaging at least fifteen shows a month and has moved into neighboring cities and states with a strong following.
