TWO JOKERS IN A PACK is the debut E.P. (extended play) from New York City based, VAGABOND HEARTS.

The group was formed by songwriters, guitarist, J-F Vergel, and singer, Edward Rogers.  Vergel and Rogers initially wrote music and lyrics  via email and as the songs took shape they met in Rogers' home studio in the East Village.  From the large trove of songs they wrote they picked those that were the most representative of Vagabond Hearts to record. Vergel and Rogers recruited guitarist/producer, Don Piper, and drummer/percussionist, Boris Kinberg to form the nucleus of Vagabond Hearts.

Other musicians who have contributed to the EP are:
Sal Maida (Roxy Music, Sparks, Cracker, Milk and Cookies) on bass
Wayne Cobham (Ray Charles, Ben E. King, Michael Jackson) on trumpet
Matt Trowbridge (Robbers on High Street, Twinstar, Amanda Thorpe) on keyboards
Tish & Snooky (Manic Panic, Sic F*cks, Blondie) on backing vocals.

Two Jokers In A Pack was recorded at Saltlands Recording Studio in Brooklyn during a record-breaking cold New York winter. and was produced by the group's very own Don Piper.

Pete Kennedy (The Kennedys, Nanci Griffith) mastered the EP at Rogers' home studio.

A very special thank you  to Melani Rogers, Susan Wamsley, Laura Poe and Susan Harley for all their help, love and support.
