Nellie “Tiger” Travis couldn’t be more destined to sing the blues. She was born deep in the delta of Mississippi in the early 60?s. As in most small towns, the church was a main focal point, and Nellie grew up singing gospel music. She has come a long way since then.

She’s headlined at the Chicago Blues Festival and performed at numerous Festivals and clubs around the world, such as Japan, Greece, Italy, Germany and Brazil. She has shared the stage with such greats as Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Gladys Knight, Ronnie Baker Brooks — and KoKo Taylor.

Among her many nominations and awards, in November 2009 Nellie was crowned the new Queen of the Blues for Chicago by Bluesman Purvis Spann, who had also bestowed that honor on KoKo Taylor, the original Queen. KoKo was a mentor and friend to Nellie, and when she passed in early 2009, Nellie used her talented songwriting skills to write and record a tribute song to her friend, titled “KoKo Queen of the Blues.”

Nellie acquired the nickname “Tiger” after coming to Chicago. She and a cousin were hanging out at B.L.U.E.S on Halsted, brainstorming what to call her. After rejecting Nellie’s choice — “Angel” — her cousin came up with “Tiger.” They both agreed it aptly describes her feline-like, intense vocal style, as well as her feisty, independent personality. As quoted in “I look good and sing good. I don’t have the blues, I’m here to give you the blues!”

In addition to being an outstanding singer and songwriter, Nellie is an accomplished actress. She has performed in plays “The Lust Of A Man” and “I was There When The Blues Was Red Hot”.
