We are The Vagabond Boys, a non-performing songwriting duo from the Heartland, Saint Louis, Missouri, USA. Our style is a blend of southern rock, folk, and gospel while staying connected to grass roots old school country music. The Vagabond Boys are two long time friends, Paul Highsmith and Johnny Sprang, who came from different backgrounds of strong musical influence. Paul grew up south of Detroit during the Motown era. Still influenced by the folk rock sound of the early seventies, Paul began playing guitar and writing songs as a young teenager. Johnny was born and raised in rural small town Ohio, just south of Cleveland, the birth of rock and roll. He was greatly influenced by his dad’s musical taste who was also a guitar player and inspired Johnny to learn. During his high school years and early years in the military he played in rock and roll bands.
