Sakae Artist: Travis Nunn

Travis gravitated to the drums from an early age. He was inspired by classic rock, and the artists he watched on the Austin City Limits stage. Around age 13, as soon as he got his first drum kit, he started playing out with any garage band he could find.

Fast forward 20 plus years and you will find the Texas native behind his kit, touring and recording with platinum selling, Grammy winner Chris Tomlin. He and his bandmates have played multiple sold out U.S. and world tours, and Travis has also supported other artists such as Matt Redman, Christy Nockels, and Andrew Peterson. He currently resides in Nashville, TN with his wife and daughter.

I play Sakae for the tone, the consistency, and the craftsmanship. I love what they do, and their philosophy behind doing it. Their instruments are a joy to play, and It’s such an honor to be part of the family!
