Travis Stever (born November 25, 1978) is an American musician who is best known as the lead guitarist and co-founder of progressive rock band Coheed and Cambria.
Coheed and Cambria
Travis Stever is a founding member of Coheed and Cambria. The band is named after the title characters in lead singer-guitarist Claudio Sanchez's story, which is central to most of the band's albums. Stever acts as a lead and rhythm guitarist in the band. He wrote the lyrics for the song "Ten Speed". He and Sanchez share leads and solos in the band's music, and often switch back and forth in the "dueling guitar" style made popular in the 1970s.
Besides guitar, Stever plays other stringed instruments such as the bass guitar, lap steel, banjo, mandolin, and dobro. He is credited with these instruments on various tracks of Coheed albums, and experiments with many of them on the Davenport Cabinet albums.
He uses a guitar talk box, as seen in Neverender Box Set.
He contributed to The Prize Fighter Inferno's My Brother's Blood Machine by playing lap steel on "Wayne Andrews, The Old Beekeeper".
