Sailing La Vagabonde’s Featured Artists

Mar Haze –

Four-piece Mar Haze bring their Australian east-coast surf vibes to the table. Coming off the back of their first full length since 2015, the newest addition to their discography, ‘Good Money’ is a beach-sandy step forward.

Featuring a similar blend of synth atmospheric, dreamy reaggae-rock infused, caramel smooth vocals as their previous offerings. Mar Haze has stayed true to their roots, the result is comfortably familiar, albeit fresh and interesting.

Randall Williams…

Randall Williams is elusive, however, his minimailst precense online is worth searching to find more of his delightful music.

Country sensibilites are the foundation upon which Williams’ deep, rich vocal tone sits upon.

Backed by soaring harmonies, intricate piano fills and melodic violin, Williams’ is given a neat platform to allow his vocal to cut through the mix and come to the forefront of the music.

Enquire at for the full experience.

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.

Andrew Rothschild –

Andrew Rothschild creates a kaleidoscopes of layers in his music, taking you through the forest and down the rabbit hole where the conventional rules of music don’t exist.

Changing timing signatures and spooky guitar resonates against an unpredictable drum beat, somehow resurfacing from the depths of psychadelia to make sense.

A Bluestronica fore-runner to keep an eye on and an ear to the ground for, his 2018 release ‘Transitions’ can be found in full on his SoundCloud and now Spotify.

Bill Beaumont –

Bill Beaumont’s debut Ep was released on May 26, 2018 and is a paddle in the murky waters of experimental rock.

Although these musical journeys can be somewhat risky – producing a palatable sound, while exploring your creative musings – Bill has succeeded with this album.

Parts alternative-ambient, parts hinting at a slidey blues influence, Beaumont’s take on contemporary, home-recorded music is curiously meditative to listen to.

Drop into his Bandcamp account for a full listen and to purchase his record from only $2.

Chris Okunbor –

Blues and Roots Singer-Songwriter Chris O has a talent for writing music that serves her storytelling.

Her rhythm is undeniable and she shines with soulful expression. A quick glance around the room shows a sea of heads bobbing and toes tapping when Chris O’s music is playing.

Her talent is backed with a strong work ethic and a hectic gigging and recording schedule.

“Chris O is a solo artist, based in Katoomba, NSW. Singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist, she arrives at gigs carrying her gear like a pack pony ~ juggling dobro, banjo, lapslide, ukes, and plain ole guitars, just a few of the instruments she plays.”

Jack and the Weatherman –

Silky smooth melodies and thought provoking lyrics underpin each song from JATWM.

The acoustic prodigies from the Netherlands deliver wonderfully arranged, easy-to-follow songs that keep your foot tapping to the beat of the tambourine.

Having released their latest full length album this year, ‘The Lucky Ones’, the duo are consistently selling out venues all over Europe. Check the socials for updates about these workhorses.

Jordy Maxwell

Sun-drenched and soulful, Jordy creates especially chill folk-roots music.

While musically pleasing, it’s Maxwell’s voice that sets each song alight. He tells relatable, emotional and captivating tales with pain in his voice that is simply gut-wrenching.

Follow Jordy’s socials for updates as he tours extensively around Australia.


Micheal Dunstan – t

Michael Dunstan writes intricate, pensive roots and folk music inspired by Western Australia’s rugged coastline and sparse, beautiful outback.

Having spent most of his upbringing in regional Australia, his style has developed to characterise that of his environment, laid back and relaxed.

Michael released his EP ‘Solace’ in January 2017 which sent him on a tour of most of Western Australia, including performing with folk legend Ziggy Alberts on the Perth leg. The talented 21-year-old has spiked in recent months from 20,000 to over 70,000 monthly hits on Spotify and it’s only early days.

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 unbelievable 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.

Thankyou to all of the last fortnights featured artists, you are a huge part of what we do on SLV and the show wouldnt be the same without you. We love you guys!

We pay a visit to the hospital to stitch Riley back up after he fell down a hatch, immediately after running our boat aground. The Turks and Caicos is considered world class diving and now Riley isn’t allowed to swim for at least a week. It’s going to kill the poor boy. Join us and our Australian family as we set off to explore what these pristine islands have to offer ?⛵️?. Congratulations to our lovely patrons Harald Schmelzer and Alexis Atkinson!

STONEFISH Encounter! World Class Diving at its Finest Ep. 157

Riley nearly knelt on a Stonefish, the most venomous fish in the world. Crazy stuff! I don’t want to think about the mayhem that would have followed in getting Riley to the mainland had he been stung… We didn’t know it was world class diving in the Turks and Caicos until we had a chat to some fellow divers on a nearby boat.This is what it’s all about my friends. Spending more time wet than dry, and being able to share days in the sun with those people you love. We’re happy you’re here to join us. Enjoy ? – Elayna Ps. for those of you who may be concerned about the conch and it “not currently being conch season”, we’re aware of the conch season dates and these videos are a fair way behind real time, so it was in fact the correct time to be grabbing conch off the ocean floor and eating them. ✌?
