VAGABON - S/T CS
Laetitia Tamko (pkaVagabon) is a vocalist / musician based in New York and Los Angeles. Her debut album was released on Father/Daughter Records in February 2017 and received glowing accolades from NPR, Pitchfork, New York Times and more.Tamko was born inCameroon and moved to New York with her family at the age of 14, attending high school and college while making music in secret before emerging via Bandcamp, DIY Brooklyn venues, and word of mouth. Throughout 2017-18 she toured globally, performing with artists like Courtney Barnett and Julien Baker; making festival appearances at Pitchfork Music Festival, Primavera, and Noise Pop; and performing at Getty Museum in Los Angeles, Lincoln Center in New York and Junior High in Los Angeles. "All The Women In Me" is her debut release for Nonesuch Records, out this fall in tandem with her 2 month tour with Angel Olsen.Tamko produced the album and played most of the instruments on 10 songs that display an extraordinary progression in the richness of her voice and a palette of sounds widened to include brass, strings and synth flourishes. It’s a beautifully spectral result, floating in a space between Nina Simone, TV on the Radio, and early 4AD. “All The Women In Me” was mixed by John Congleton (Sharon Van Etten, St. Vincent) and features guest appearances from Sasami, Jay Som, Julie Byrne and Meg Duffy (Hand Habits).
