STILLY STUDIO: The Flatland Travelers

Members share their influences and goals

STILLWATER, Okla. — Chris Bell, Sam Naifeh, Dylan Cahwee and Ryan Linden are members of the Flatland Travelers. The band has an eclectic mix of influences ranging from funk to bluegrass.

The band plays shows from Stillwater to San Antonio and has released a studio album - "Between the Tracks and the Runway."

"We had about eight original songs and we just felt like we needed to go experience the recording process, so we did that," said Naifeh.

The original three members - Cahwee, Naifeh and Bell - went to high school together in Sapulpa and began the band in middle school. The fourth member, Linden, joined the group last year when they met him through college.

The band plays to support the album, further the Stillwater music scene and to continue doing what the band members enjoy. According to Naifeh, that is one of the band's big goals.

"Being able to make music together as long as possible," said Naifeh. "Becoming better musicians and better friends."
