He’s collaborated on some great projects, including with Zooey Deschanel on She & Him. They have a new album, “Classics”, which is streaming now as part of our Album Preview series, but I wanted to flash back to some of his solo work.

Travis Bretzer — “Promises”
There is a sweet simplicity to this song that I love – and the fact that it will be included on an album called “Waxing Romantic” pretty much tells you everything you need to know. It’s got a breezy 70’s vibe as he ruminates on his relationship.
It will be on the debut full length from Canadian artist Travis Bretzer (out February …
