Travis Rivers (Born ? Still looking…)

A widely traveled figure in the music industry, Texan Travis Rivers managed and produced Nashville-based blues singer, Tracy Nelson in the nineteen-seventies and eighties. (Nelson had been the vocalist for Mother Earth, a San Francisco band of the late nineteen-sixties; Rivers had been the band’s manager.) Over the years, he has helped many other fledgling artists get started, including John Hiatt and Emmylou Harris, and, famously, he was the man, who some years earlier, had driven Janis Joplin from Port Arthur, Texas, to San Francisco.
