"The main intriguing factor about The Vagabond Tales is the inexplicit chameleon effect of ageless mood,” - Independent Feedback Blog.
Eva & the Vagabond Tales is a music group led by singer-songwriter Eva Mikhailovna (rhythm ukulele, rhythm guitar, piano, and vocals). The songs combine Eastern European folk, vintage pop, and ragtime into a musical melting pot, creating an alluring sound that "transcends time and continents." Building its sound from the foundations of old time music and melancholy storytelling, it bends the laws of traditional songwriting to become a sound all its own.
The group has toured across the Pacific Northwest, sharing the stage with M. Ward, Erica Rhodes, Pompeya, as well as other notable acts. Mikhailovna has worked with Brooklyn based producer Charles Newman (The Magnetic Fields, The Bones of J.R. Jones) on her 2019 full length album, Uncharted Ocean. Mikhailovna’s music has been featured in NPR Variety shows and commercials around the world. Recently her song, "Rose Colored Dreams" was featured in the title credits for comedian Erica Rhodes' comedy special "La Vie En Rhodes," filmed at the Rose Bowl.
Eva & the Vagabond Tales’ live shows feature a variety of unique instrumentation, humorous story telling, occasional tap dancing, and vintage atmosphere. One can find the “antique pop” group serenading crowds at their residency at Downtown Disney in Anaheim, CA where they can be caught playing their original songs as well as special takes on Disney classics.
"Some of the songs feel like a personal experience, and some are like adventures from another time or another place."- David Fleming, NPR 2019
