About Stoll Vaughan
Stoll Vaughan has made a name for himself as a reputable, young songwriter. With an expressive rustic style, profound lyrics, and a resonant voice, Vaughans identity is carried by a timeless authenticity all his own. Born in Kentucky, his music embraces his own style, although he has been favorably compared to the likes of early Springsteen and Townes Van Zandt. After the release of his first record Hold on Through Sleep and Dreams in 2005, Vaughan gained national recognition through air play on the AAA and Americana Radio formats. Garnering a spot on Americana Radios Top Ten Chart, he was also highlighted as a guest on Billy Blocks Western Beat, WFPKs Live Lunch, and Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour. The album was also named one of Performing Songwriter Magazines DIY top twelve records of 2005. After touring Americas Southeast and Midwest, Vaughan was invited to Europe where he opened an eightweek long tour for Urge Overkill. Gaining international recognition, Hold on Through Sleep and Dreams was named one of The Netherlandss Alternative Countrys Top Ten Records of the Year. In the summer of 2005, Stoll Vaughan acquired a coveted spot on the Words and Music Tour, opening forty four dates for music legends John Fogerty and John Mellencamp. Vaughans sophomore album, Love Like a Mule will be released September 19, 2006, presents a more confident and developed artist. It does not stray from his soulful style or distinct sound; it embraces it with passion and energy. There is, however, a definitive difference in the collective mood of the album. Produced by Mike Wanchic (James McMurtry, Mellencamp, Dylan), and backed by a stellar supporting ensemble: Carl Breomel and Bo Koster (My Morning Jacket), Jake Smith (Mysteries of Life), Devon Ashley (Over the Rhine) and Dane Clark (Mellencamp and Donovan), Love Like a Mule reveals new depth, more sophisticated compositions, and a more upbeat, soulful essence. It is a progressive musical statement that instills Stoll Vaughans future as a songwriter.
