Sailing La Vagabonde’s Featured Artists

II Chitarrista del SabatoPro –…

Covering and remaking songs while doing justice to the original recording is no easy task, especially while trying to add one’s own flavour.

Chitarrista nails it. His SoundCloud account is full with his unique versions of songs. From the Chilli Peppers to Bon Jovi, The Who and many others, everyone’s taste is catered for.

Follow the link to hear some of the gold that Chitarrista records and produces.

Jason Lyle – https://theresistancesoundlaboratory….

Jason Lyle, AKA The Resistance Sound Laboratory, writes atmospheric background music.

The title descriptions from the lab are quite accurate, ranging from “futuristic synth heavy sludge surf trip hop” to “futuristic dark surf gospel trip hop” and more.

Reverberated, grimy guitar is put against pulsing bass lines and frequent jazz drum breaks, making for an utterly great dive-bar feel.

Jet Belly –

The music Jet Belly writes could quite easily be the soundtrack to your summer drives.

Coastal rock vibes are a staple of the project with clean, slightly overdriven guitars, clever bass lines and chords (Scott Montgomery AKA Jet Belly is a bassist) and fun vocal harmonies.

Described as indie, power-pop, rock and sometimes teetering on psychedelic, the various combinations lead to a rocking party themed musical vibe.


Ragged –

Ragged are a indie-rock band who ebb and flow across different sounds depending on the song.

Sometimes the music is chilled, featuring soul ballads with inspiring lyrics, other times their rock influence comes through strongly, a punchy message express delivered.

Regardless of  musical leanings, ragged consistently sound good, the rock influence always underpinning the project’s sound.



Airline Food –

Perth four-piece, Airline Food, is a psychedelic indie band, quickly filling a cozy little niche that likely includes furry walls, beanbags and lava lamps.

Their music is so chill. Synth strokes are delightfully lazy and laced between a jazz-infused beat. Hot little bass lines and cosmically reverberating guitar are the gold standard, providing space for vocals that echo eerily and drift through the tracks like a ghost.

Their March 2018 release ‘Fragments in Green’ is seductive and takes a page from the book of artists like Mac DeMarco and Tame Impala.

Cat Clyde –

Cat Clyde’s seductively smooth voice conjures thoughts of a wild western saloon bar, complete with tumbleweed, bar fight and burlesque.

Insanely enjoyable music drives this scene, the slide guitar telling its tales of misfortune against the pulse of a drumbeat that may inspire mediocre air drumming attempts.

Follow the link above to check out her nothing-short-of-epic album, ‘Ivory Castanets’.


Cold Weather Company –…

Art-folk three piece Cold Weather Company are making waves, with ripples starting on the East Coast of the United States, steadily spreading to an international audience.

Their style is undoubtably more than the typical facade of folk music, running considerably deep.

The collaboration of rich vocal harmonies, intricate and intelligent musicianship, interesting and quirky interludes and huge progressive crescendos, are the hallmark for Cold Weather Company.

Gotam Sen

Gotam Sen has featured regularly on Sailing La Vagabonde, producing solid and versatile music that is well received by international listeners.

Sen’s vocal melodies are a standout; pensive and yearning, yet allowing the musical soiree to unfold with a karaoke style confidence.

Beneath the vocal charm, a bright musical composition pushes a driving rhythm. Bass lines walk a tightrope of standard drumbeats and features from other instruments introduce themselves sporadically

Hollow Coves…

Hollow Coves is the creation of long time friends Matt Carins and Henderson.

Formed in 2013 they have accomplished a lot in four short years, Including the release of 2 EP’s, international travel and an ever growing fan base. Some of their songs on Spotify have over 20 million plays each.

Their success is likely a byproduct of hard work, dedication and talent, that which bleeds into their brilliant, intimate live performances.

Hugo Cottu –

Hugo plays guitar with the soul objective of getting people to groove out.

His silky smooth style of guitar playing compliments guest vocalists perfectly, creating an atmosphere conducive of having a boogie. And boogie we will!

Keep an ear out for more from the talented youngster..



Jordan Prince –

Hailing from one of the world’s most musically inspired cities – New Orleans, Jordan took his talents across the Atlantic Ocean.

He ventured all the way to Europe, steadily carving a name for himself into the steins and hearts of Germany’s people.

Critically acclaimed, he has continued to flourish in his new environment with a hectic touring schedule and plans for a new concept album due in 2018.

“Jordan Prince is currently working on his new album, and because the people from his life are such a strong motor behind his writing, this will be a concept album: each of the twelve planned songs will be about a single, important person whose friendship changed his life. The album is officially to be released in 2018 with a new tour.”

Mimi Gilbert –…

Mimi has a wonderful, raw and honest voice that melts atop her sweet guitar tone.

Her songs are meaningful and drawn from an extensive personal life experience spent mostly between her home of the USA and Australia.

While her lyrics are utterly relatable and often dense with all tones of the emotional spectrum, there is a driving sense of hope that oozes out of the songs amidst the rhythm of her guitar and occasionally featured percussion.

Ronjo V –

Ronjo V is indie rockers Ryan and Michael, based in Austin, Texas.

Their music bridges the gap between the genres of rock, pop and indie, with melodic piano often mixed among a high energy drum beat and soaring electric guitar.

Their music has been described as “a haunting yet stoic examination of the world”, a sound that is apparently prevalent in their 2015 EP release ‘Ronjoism’.

Samuel Scott McCumber –…

Samuel Scott McCumber seems to employ a time-tested method when penning songs; write a story, write good music, put them together. He does this unbelievably well, too.

Utterly enjoyable, McCumber’s songs shine with intelligent and humorous lyricism, relatable and introspective depth.

Storytelling aside, his music is well produced, the acoustic guitar cutting through with a mellow, smooth tone.

Sea Foam Sweater Girl –
Beautifully raw, Seafoam Sweater Girl records her songs lo-fi and in one take.
Despite no professional quality recordings, she manages to create lovely pretty sing-alongs that we love to listen to.
The lo-fi and raw quality of this music only adds to its charm and represents a style that tends to be lacking in indie-folk recordings.


Thank you to all of the last fortnights featured artists, we couldn’t do this without you.

The First Time We’ve Turned Back. 35+ Knots Wind on the nose! Ep.158

Join us for some bad weather in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Not much fun punching into 35+ knots for the 4 inexperienced sailors onboard. We then say goodbye to our guests and sit down to have a chat to you about the most recent series of unfortunate events and how everything led up to us running aground and an accident onboard. As cruisers, most people we meet suggest to us that we move rather quickly around the world. We never really spend too long in one place before we either start getting itchy feet or as in this case are forced to keep moving to meet people in a certain location. This is a good lesson for others who’ve just set off or plan to. Try and avoid meeting people in places, when you can, make them come to you. It’ll be one heck of a sweeter ride. Hey man, slow down as Thom Yorke said once. Do you remember the bread crumbs on our Pacific Crossing?

Pregnant on a Boat. Sometimes it Sucks. Ep. 159

We sail 100nm overnight to our first stop in the Bahamas, Acklins Island. Being pregnant on a boat, you can imagine it can make any slight feelings of morning sickness or nausea amplify. So on this trip, I was feeling very nauseous the whole time and basically didn’t leave my little sleeping spot in the saloon other than to make a mad dash to the back of the boat. I’ve had a pretty sweet ride so far, but sometimes when it gets tough it makes you not so keen for the next trip and you wonder how you will ever continue. The second Trimester is supposed to be easier, right? When we finally arrive you will be pleased to meet some other salty sailors and explore the Glorious Acklins Island with us ??? Videos made with love, Elayna.

Crossing Borders on a Sail Boat

We go through this kind of stuff all the time. Today though things were a little more extreme. Having to schedule an appointment in with the embassy months prior, printing pages and pages of information basically about the numbers we have previously been assigned, flying to Barbados, its all a bit of a headache really.
