Since the release of her debut full-length "Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit", Courtney Barnett has been celebrated as one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in indie rock, a singer-writer who mixes deeply insightful observations with devastating self-assessment.
Rolling Stone praised her as “one of the sharpest, most original songwriters around—at any level, in any genre… a self-strafing humorist á la Lena Dunham who’s also a Dylan-style word ninja”. She's a critical darling with an adoring fanbase to match. Barnett's electric live shows have seen her grace the stages of the biggest festivals of the world, playing to adoring audiences across 5 continents.
Barnett has won 4 ARIA Awards, the prestigious Australian Music Prize and APRA's Australian Songwriter Of The Year Award. She has been nominated for a Grammy and a Brit Award and also won The USA Independent Music Association's Libera Award. She's topped it all off with a performances on The Ellen Degeneres Show, three appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, several and the season finale of Saturday Night Live.
2017 saw the release of the wonderful album "Lotta Sea Lice" a collaboration album with Kurt Vile and a gorgeous place-holder while we await the release of her second full-length in 2018.
Courtney is the founder of Milk! Records, a label based in Melbourne, Australia through which she releases her own records and those of Jen Cloher, Fraser A. Gorman, Jade Imagine, Loose Tooth, East Brunswick All Girls Choir and more.
Vagabon, the moniker for multi-instrumentalist, Lætitia Tamko, was born in late 2014 during her final years of engineering school. Currently living in New York City via Cameroon, Tamko’s cultural duality and engineering background informs her inspirations as a musician and a producer. Blending elements of west and east African music from her childhood with punk as well as electronic leaning instrumentation, Vagabon songs vary in themes and genre.
In November 2014, Tamko self-released an EP, “Persian Garden”, a collection of the first songs she had ever written. “Persian Garden” caught the attention of a larger than imagined audience which led Vagabon to a couple of U.S tours and several Northeast tours.
Tamko recently finished recording her first album, where she is the writer, co-producer and main performer of all instruments.
