They walk, talk, and breath, the music they love to play. Their original songs were born from the idea that music is king. The Vagrants have melted all their inspirations from ACDC, Zeppelin, Queen, Allman Brothers, Floyd Santana, RHCP, and Foo Fighters into their own very unique style. Years ago ‘rock’ meant diversity!! If you love diversity and classic rock, you will love The Vagrants
The Vagrants are fronted by high-energy rock chick Renate. She is often compared to Janis Joplin, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar Suzi Quatro, Melissa Etheridge, and other ballsy front women, but her vocals are uniquely Renate. Cheeky and fun loving she gets the party started.
Journeyman songwriter/guitarist for the Vagrants, Steve Iorio, has his own unique style of playing with complex guitar riffs and arrangements all made to look simple. Told on a regular basis ‘You are the best guitarist I have ever seen’ Steve just shrugs his head and says ‘You need to go out and see more guitarists!” Brazilian born Rafael on bass and German born Julian on drums bring some South American spice and fresh groove to the lineup.
The Vagrants have released 4 profoundly different studio albums and 2 live CDs. They never cared what the record companies said, they only put out music they love. Not trendy, not conformist, just solid song-writing delivered by a unique sounding lead singer, with a real voice, brilliant guitar and a tight groove from a quality rhythm section.
