If you escape the usual trends in the entertainment industry either by a stroke of luck or by living a committed, disciplined, and principled life, what causes escape is not as important as what is created. The showbiz world is riddled with several cases of failed marriages and broken families, yet the list of the very few who have kept their homes and families in one piece over a long period of time exists. 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 romance novel Lover Boy. Apart from acting, music is like his elixir of life and he is pursuing a career in it. He is the owner and chief engineer of the New York-based Broken Box Recording Company. Judging by his long hair, tattooed body, and style of dress, there is no doubt that he belongs to the rock music brotherhood. Travis was a member of several band groups in which he plays guitar.
Until 2015, he was a member of a metal band called White Widows Pact, which until 2015 focused on punk rock and heavy metal, and played for a four-piece 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 playing guitar for these bands he also composes music for movies. He is the composer of the film music for the film Story of a Girl.
Travis Bacon’s Bio, Age
The guitarist was born as Travis Sedgwick on June 23, 1989, in Los Angeles, California, USA. He attended Evergreen State College, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts and Audio Engineering.
The starlet seems to have started his career at a young age when he was born into an established star family. He followed in his parents’ footsteps when he appeared, albeit in a few roles as a child actor, like Lenny in the 2005 film Loverboy, directed by his father.
Having a father who not only performs in the acting arena but also on the music stage and has a good ear for music helped him to clearly define his attitude. Thus his journey into music.
Parents and Family
Some are born great, some achieve greatness, while others are given greatness. Travis fits better into the first category of born stars because he has prominent parents, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick.
Kevin is an established actor and musician. He was born on July 8, 1958, and has starred in several blockbuster movies, including JFK, A Few Good Men, Apollo, Hollow Man, X-Men: First Class. He became widely known when he starred in Footloose. Apart from being the face of EE television advertising, he has also received a Golden Globe award.
His mother, Kyra, is an award-winning actress and director. She was born in New York and has been on screen for a long time. Her screen credits include The Closer, Another World, and other behind-the-scenes roles as a director.
The prominent couple have been married since September 4, 1988. The duo met on the set of the PBS version of Lanford Wilson’s play Lemon Sky and have since acted together in films such as Pyrates, Murder in the First, The Woodsman, and Loverboy.
Travis is a family oriented guy and does not hesitate to show support to his family. He appeared with his parents on the red carpet during the screening of their film Story Of A Girl at Neuehouse in New York City. The guitarist cum composer also composed the music for the film, which his mother directed while his father and sister played the lead roles.
Travis Bacon’s Relationship with Sosie Bacon
The family seems to be the linchpin of Travis’ relationship. He is the oldest of his parents’ two children. The second is his sister, the actress Sosie Bacon, who was born in 1992. She made her acting debut in the same 2005 film in which his brother also made his loverboy. Unlike Travis, she has also appeared in other works, including 13 Reasons Why, The Closer, Here and Now, Story of a Girl.
In an interview with Closer Weekly, her father, Kevin, listed in his list of accomplishments that he is most proud to be a father. He added that parenthood means educating them and trying to teach them and letting them learn by example, to be good, decent, compassionate, and hard-working people. And he was certainly very good at it because we have clear evidence of this in his children.
