We’re super excited to announce our new weekly article featuring the musicians who have been kind enough to allow us to use their music on the Sailing La Vagabonde video blogs!
Every week we search high and low for new music to play on the show and gosh do we ever find some talent! It’s amazing that there are so many new independent artists out in this world producing top quality tunes and it’s a privilege to be able to listen to them and put them in the Vlogs. We love giving independent musicians exposure on the show and love listening to some of the best new music we’ve heard in years!
If you watch the Vlogs on Youtube and are wondering who the music behind the videos is, you can find links to their online media in the video descriptions. Now we will also be posting a blog each week right here where you can find these links and read more information about some of our featured artists.
Music is such an important part of our video production and the SLV videos wouldn’t be the same without backing music from these artist, a really big thanks for their continued support of SLV. Please follow the links to hear more from these amazing musicians and to encourage them to continue making great music!
Elayna and Riley have been releasing daily video blogs on Youtube since January 23, Riley detailing his solo sailing trip of 1200 nautical miles and Elayna adventuring around New Zealand.
The music for the first 16 daily blogs was nothing short of blissful listening from the following artists, in no particular order;
Tatono – http://www.tatonomusic.com
Tatono is from Bend, Oregon, in the U.S.A. and is regularly featured on SLV for his ambient electronic sounds, sounds that make you drift into another world of paradise and waterfalls is how I would describe it!
“I depend on my ears and MIDI keyboard playing to compose all of my music. I make a very wide variety of
music including ambient/new age, reggae, hip hop and rock/pop. I’ve produced 5 albums altogether that were released internationally via digital distribution. Making new age/ambient music is probably my favorite to make.”

“Andrew Rothschild is fore-running a new genre called Bluestronica, alongside the rapid-growing genres of Folktronica, Downtempo & Dream Pop. His primary expertise of guitar furthers Folk & Blues within Electronica for a journey-like experience.
My debut album came out in March, and my latest album just came out on September 22nd.
It’s very nature driven, so it goes really well with traveling, nature, triumphant, & heroic shots. It’s already been featured on handfuls of top traveling vlogs. I also do slower, meditative personal scores for Nature Relaxation, the company.

Handmade Moments – https://handmademoments.bandcamp.com
Groovy, soul quenched folk that makes it hard to resist a smile spreading across your face as Joel and
Anna harmonise like kindred spirits, the slap of the double bass pulsing behind them and with them, I cant get enough of this!
“Experiencing a Handmade Moments show is kind of like enjoying a spoonful of political discourse wrapped in local organic bacon and deep fried in hemp oil — and it’s all silky.” – Nick Brothers, Free Weekly
