Francis Healy is the frontman and main songwriter of Travis, one of the most successful Brit-pop groups of the late ‘90s and early 2000s. Travis hit their stride around the turn of the millennium, when both The Man Who and The Invisible Band sold several million copies apiece. Healy handled almost all of the songwriting duties himself, and his gentle, melodic music became a hallmark of the latter-day Brit-pop sound, with younger groups like Coldplay and Keane citing Travis’ albums as a major influence. Travis continued releasing albums as the decade drew to a close. Meanwhile, Healy began writing material for a solo album, Wreckorder, which he released in 2010. ~ Andrew Leahey
