Will Erickson has played drums in bands such as The Travel Guide, Spirit of the Stairs and Bridegeist, but a few years ago he wanted to see if he could return to another musical love, guitar, and write songs for a project that, at least at first, existed only at his home. That project would eventually become the band Team Tremolo.

Musicians will say that there's a marked difference between the concert stage and the recording studio and KMUW's Jedd Beaudoin caught up with one group recently that had a lot to say about those differences.

Wichita’s The Travel Guide has spent the last few years in the studio honing eleven songs for its new album Trading A Dream. The band’s guitarist and vocalist Thayne Coleman says that the band wanted to create something that improved upon the group’s acclaimed live shows and made many songs that were already longtime fan favorites even better.
