When one escapes the usual trends in the entertainment industry either by a stroke of luck or by dedicated, disciplined and principled living, whatever brings about the escape does not matter as much as what is brought into being. The showbiz world is riddled with several cases of failed marriages and broken homes, nevertheless, the list exists of the very few who have kept their home and family in one piece for a long time running. Among them is the star-studded family of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, the parents of Travis Bacon.
Travis is the first child and son of the celebrity duo. He made his acting debut as a child actor with the role of Lenny in the romantic drama Lover Boy. Apart from acting, music is like his lifeblood and he is pursuing a career therein. He is the owner and the chief engineer of the New York-based Company Broken Box Recording Company. Going by his long hair, tattoo filled body and his dressing style, there is no doubt that he belongs to the rock music fraternity. Travis has been a member of several band groups where he plays as a guitarist.
He was a member of a metal band known as White Widows Pact which focused on punk rock and heavy metals until 2015 and plays for a four-membered band called Idiot Box. In 2016, Travis Bacon joined an American Black Metal Band called Black Anvil. The group was formed in 2007 and had three members Paul Delaney, Gary Bennett, and Ralph Glicken.
Besides strumming the guitar for these bands, he also composes music for movies. He is the composer of the music for the movie, Story of a Girl.

Having a father who is not only in the acting arena but also features in the music stage and has a good ear for music helped him to clearly define his bearing. Thus, his journey into music.
