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.
Cende formed in 2013 when Dave Medina, Cameron Wisch, and Greg Rutkin graduated college and moved into David Blaine's The Steakhouse. After bonding over their love for the classic 1996 film "That Thing You Do", they decided that they too would start a band and take over the world. Soon after Bernard Casserly (Normal Person) was added to the lineup. His epic bass playing and good looks immediately brought the band to the level of "world class" with many referring to the group as "LITERALLY the best band besides Porches, Pile, Ovlov, and Krill."
We are a rock band of rockers who love to rock. We also can be just one person who is much quieter but still loves to rock.
