Fugitive & the Vagabond Album Art

The final artworks used for Brisbane-based Fugitive & the Vagabond's debut album 'Novella'. The band's unique folk and blues sound conjured up these 1950's film noir inspired images in my mind, and I just went with it. Much like the music they're based on, each artwork tells a story; following a lone and disenchanted sojourner through a sleeping city.

"Album art is so important to me as a musician as it is another part of telling the story the music does. Stacey jumped on board to create album art as well as concept art for each song. She took the ball and RAN with it. She pieced together a 24 page film noir booklet which perfectly captured a gritty, dust bowl Americana tale of a man who'd seen it all. It is the cornerstone in which the albums early success stands. It caught the eye of many. Amazing work Stacey!"
- Jordan Merrick (Singer/Songwriter of Fugitive & the Vagabond)
