In the vibrant realm of music, Lisa Ramey stands as a vocal powerhouse, her discography a diverse tapestry woven with threads of gospel, rock, reggae, and R&B. Her artistic spirit knows no bounds, effortlessly traversing genres with a versatility that leaves audiences in awe.

Now, she graces us with her latest creation, the mesmerizing single Vagabond. The track becomes an exploration of these enigmatic figures she dubs “sexy zombies,” leaving listeners pondering the profound question—do they realize the emotional havoc they wreak?

Vagabond is a sonic journey that fuses R&B, pop, and soul, adorned with a hint of jungle beats in its production. As Ramey unfurls her musical prowess, the track becomes a testament to her growth and unwavering commitment to the artistry that defines her.

Hailing from St. Louis and finding her artistic home in New York, Lisa Ramey, along with her producer, couldn’t resist the magnetic pull of the track’s beat. Layered with infectious tones, the result is a pulse-pounding composition that delves deep into the theme of one-sided relationships.

In a candid reflection on Vagabond, Ramey shares, “I’ve dated guys who seemed to be wandering around aimlessly through a desert without a destination. At least that’s how they treated our relationship. There was no giving on their side but they would have no problem sucking the soul right out of me. They’d suck all my energy out just to head back to the desert to continue wandering from woman to woman without achieving any grounding in a relationship. I call them sexy zombies. If you let them, they’ll suck the joy out of you then move on to their next target without realizing what they’re doing….or do they?”

Lisa Ramey‘s musical finesse shines through in Vagabond, offering an alluring jam of sounds that captivates the listener. With one foot rooted in the traditions of the past and the other boldly striding into the future, she proves that her creativity knows no bounds.
