2014-2017 City Paper Americana Artist of the Year winners The Travelin’ Kine are on the move. This hardworking local outfit has logged serious miles honing their sound: a mix of potent songwriting and fiery country chops, doused with a few shots of whiskey. With the help of a seasoned crew of local talent, singer Slaton Glover delivers a musical message of hellfire and heartbreak, leaving it all on the stage at every performance. Releasing their first album in 2016, the Kine's first single "Change in the Wind" was voted 2015 CPMA Song of the Year. Their new album "Ride" was recorded at Truphonic Studio and is due out this summer. The Travelin’ Kine amounts to some of the best lowcountry music in years. Catch them if you can!

New Album Cover Art 

We are pleased to announce we have completed recording our new album, "Ride", at Truphonic Recording Studio in Charleston, SC!  We have worked extremely hard on these twelve songs and with the help of Producer Josh Roberts and Sound Engineer  Elliot Elsey (among others too many to name here) we are very proud of the product we have created.  As soon as it's mixed and mastered we will release a single or two leading up to a summer release.  We can't wait for everyone to hear the songs we've been working on so long.  Until then, here is our album cover.  Painted by none other that Mr. Wes Freed of Drive-By Truckers fame. See ya'll down the road, this is gonna be a busy year!

New Album In The Works 

2017 is looking to be a big year for us!  We spent much of the winter working on songs for our upcoming sophomore album and soon we'll head in to Truphonic Recording Studios to get these tracks laid down.  Josh Roberts of Josh Roberts & the Hinges has handled the production duties for these new songs and we've had Tim Nielson of Drivin n Cryin working on a few as well.  We're planning on a late fall/early winter release but in the meantime we are building up a pretty busy summer schedule to go out and road test some of these new tracks.  Stay tuned, we'll be adding dates all over the Southeast in the coming weeks. Hope to see you on the road!

Ringing Out 2016 With a Bang 

Between releasing our first album and having record breaking numbers for our album release at Charleston Pour House, to adding new markets to our touring schedule and buying a tour bus, 2016 has been a great year for us!  We've got big plans in store for 2016 as we've recently returned to the studio and have begun work on our next album, being produced by Josh Roberts of Josh Roberts & the Hinges.  We'll spend most of the winter in the studio before hitting the road again in the spring, but first we're going to round out 2016 the best way we know how.  With a two night show at Charleston Pour House with our Dangermuffin buddies!  Click here to get your tickets in advance.  We hope to see everyone there as we celebrate another great year with great friends.  Cheers!

'Change in the Wind' Album Release 

We're thrilled to announce we will finally be releasing this creation of ours on June 18 at The Charleston Pour House!  We put a lot of time, effort, and love into this album and we can't wait to share it with you!
What is even more significant about that date is it will mark the ninth anniversary of when nine Charleston Fire Department firemen gave their lives to protect others. In honor of their sacrifice we will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the MUSC Children's Hospital Burned Children's Fund.  We're encouraging local businesses to match all of a portion of our contribution.  Thanks so much to The Charleston Pour House, Virgil Kaine, Channel 4 Lowcountry Live, and The Bridge 105.5 for helping put this together!  We'll see you in a few weeks!
