NORMAN – Oklahoma musician Travis Linville dropped his new EP “Out on the Wire” today and will play a free album release show at 7 tonight at The Deli, 309 White Street.

So can give the new EP a listen before you plunk down your coin, Linville, 36, is streaming now “Out on the Wire” at

As previously reported, the Norman-based recording artist, who often tours with Hayes Carll, recently did a phone interview with my excellent colleague Nathan Poppe, and he talked about – among other things – what stopped him from playing all the instruments he’s fluent in on the EP.

“The thing that stopped me is mostly just wanting to have some element of collaboration. I could sit here in my little studio setup and mess with songs forever. Generally what happens, I’d get songs to a certain place, and it just feels a lot better to include my friends and some other great musicians (David Leach on bass, Ryan Jones on keys, Giovanni Carnuccio on drums). As I was bringing those guys in, it was great because I built the songs up to a certain point, and then I call a few friends to come over, then all of a sudden the thing was finished.”
