Travis Meeks (born April 27, 1979 in Charlestown, Indiana), is an American musician, and is the lead singer and guitarist for Post-Grunge band Days of the New. Travis began his career at a very young age, learning how to play guitar at the age of 9. He soon started playing at clubs, and it wasn't long before he received a recording contract. In 1994 he started a heavy metal band, Dead Reckoning with fellow Indianan teenagers Matt Taul and Jesse Vest, which played heavy, Pantera-like music. In 1995, they soon changed their name to Days of the New, and the genre to post-grunge.
