Vagabond, the moniker for multi-instrumentalist, Laetitia 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.

In March of this year she got Best New Music and Best New Track by Pitchofrk. In February she was W magazine's 'Girl of The Moment'. She was listed on Billboard's 'Bands To Watch in 2017'

"Vagabon Is an Indie Rock Game Changer" - Pitchfork

"This latest record from Vagabon, the project of producer and multi-instrumentalist Laetitia Tamko, feels like a book of poems made for memorizing: It offers texts to turn over and over again in one's mind, and it's full of words to live by." - NPR (First Listen)

"Since hitting the city’s DIY scene a couple of years ago, her craft has blossomed -- so much, that her debut album is garnering the sort of widescreen media attention that can vault artists onto myriad critics’ lists and prestigious live opportunities." - Billboard

"Tamko likens her songwriting process to collage, and her constant state of transience informs every track. Imagine each lyric as a line on a postcard, written from different places in the universe or emotional states of mind. Together, they form a patchwork of varying narratives interconnected by the same seamstress; a smattering of worlds Tamko enters and will just as soon leave behind." - Stereogum (Band To Watch)
