Phil & Walon
Several years ago, Phil Proctor and Walon Smith began blending their voices, guitars, and life experiences into the music they were making together. With vocal harmonies like the classic brother duets of the 1930s and 40s, and songs that cover lots of universal ground, they have maintained a loyal following through the last three decades.
Enter Sarah Looney. As co-lead vocalist with Walon in Cotton Bird, she has been a game changer, contributing lyrics, music, and a fresh take on some timeless themes. The chemistry between these three is unmistakable. Catch them together wherever you can.
Following three European tours, four full-length albums, and a tour schedule packed with more festivals and venues than ever before, The Vegabonds are forging into their second decade spreading the gospel of pure New South Rock.
The Vegabonds give their fans a sensational performance with powerhouse guitar riffs and impactful songwriting night after night. Their hard work and unbridled talents have not gone unnoticed; the group has opened for such notable acts as Lynyrd Skynyrd and the late Gregg Allman, among others. Rousing performances at festivals like Peach Festival, Sweetwater 420, and Taste of Randolph, grew their notoriety nationwide. It’s no wonder that Live for Live Music has compared them to musical legends like My Morning Jacket and The Black Crowes, calling them “a force to be reckoned with,” complete with “gorgeous harmonies and impressive instrumental skills making for a perfect combination.” See Video
