Though a newcomer to the music scene as an independent artist, Matt Vaughan has been playing live for the past few years, honing his skills as a stage musician, singer, & songwriter. Raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Matt was exposed early on to the soul of Motown music. The sounds of top 40 radio was always around growing up, and later he was introduced to many talented singer/songwriters by way of the local Atlanta music scene. Like many, adulthood led down the path of self-discovery as well as plenty of international travel; the musical path leading to popular British artists & world music.
With the soul of Motown, the sensibility of pop, and the lyrical strength of a singer/songwriter combined with the intelligence of Brit-Rock in his DNA, Matt is now poised to step out on his own.
In March of 2011, Matt released “Back To The Start”, a stripped down four song EP. The songs were an introduction to a new direction for an emerging artist with melodies that stick in your head & lyrics that catch your ear.
Those four songs along with six new tracks now make up the debut full-length album, “Begin Again”. Pulling material from his own life & the inspiration around him, Matt’s approach offers a unique take on the age-old stories of life and love. It is from this viewpoint that “Begin Again” was written. “I believe that no matter what you’ve done or wherever you might be, you can always start over”, says Vaughan. It’s with this mindset that Matt Vaughan begins with his own musical career & a sound all his own. [+]
