A new solo project by former Three Times Bad
band leader Sam Caine, VAGABOND EMPIRE reimagines the Great American Songbook for a post-pandemic America. The music spans one hundred years of memorable melodies, danceable rhythms, and soulful energy.
Caine's roots as a singer/songwriter, guitarist/storyteller, and banjo picker dig deep into the expansive Americana tradition that includes vaudeville, ragtime, Dixieland, Cotton Club, Gypsy swing, folk, blues, bluegrass, country, honkytonk, and more.
The VE set list is a mix of dynamic originals and updates on timeless tunes popularized by legendary artists like Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Williams, and the Rolling Stones
