Following up fellow Vagabonds member Baysiqly‘s solo debut, “Leonidas”, E.R. is following up with his own solo debut project, “Year of the Vagabond”. Led by the buzz-worthy single, “Live Life”, “Year of the Vagabond” is a look into the past year of the Vagabonds rise in South Florida’s music scene.
Entirely produced, mixed, and mastered by E.R. himself, “Year of the Vagabond” got it’s title from a write up done about E.R. on an established music website labeling 2012 and 2013 as such. The 10 track album goes into the highs and lows of what E.R. calls “having one foot in the street and one foot in the music biz”, where although some may recognize him for his music throughout Miami, him and rhyme partner Baysiqly still have to deal with the pressures of your average everyday person.
From the moody “Keep it 100″, where E.R. speaks out to those who claim to be closest to him but have never shown any real support for his dreams, to the rags-to-riches anthem track “Winner”, to the neighborhood pride of “10th Avenue” where E.R. rhymes about his Little Havana stomping grounds and the specific people that have seen him rise from square one, “Year of the Vagabond” leaves no stone unturned in the past year of E.R.‘s life.
Digital copies are available on all digital retailers such as iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and Xbox Live and you can also purchase autographed physical copies of “Year of the Vagabond” at the Vagabonds’ upcoming concerts as well as at our store, which you can click right above!

NYC Vagabonds, be sure to catch E.R. and Baysiqly performing live on Monday, April 15th at the book reading and signing for our good friend Jay Fingers‘ new novel, “Orangemound”. A fiction novel based on the Memphis neighborhood he grew up in, “Orangemound” gives readers an inside look into the rough-and-tumble Memphis neighborhood, which became infamous in 1994 for being number one in murders, burglaries, and rapes committed in the city.
This show will serve as one of two shows that the Vagabonds will have in New York on the weekend of April 12th. For this date, which will go down in Hank’s Saloon in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, E.R. and Baysiqly will be accompanied by Current Event, which is an electronic bass band fronted by another homie of ours, Dj Sicksentz (DJ/producer for Mr. Muthafukin Exquire).
