Vincent Vaughan is a classic ‘musician’s musician’ - a man who has dedicated more than three decades of his life telling stories of everyday people through song. His humble yet powerful style of performing has endeared him to a diverse circle of listeners for many years. Now, with the release of some of the most compelling songs of his career, he is ready to share his eclectic, three chords-and-the-truth style with new audiences.

Welsh born to Irish parents his childhood was spent in the Tipperary village of Mullinahone. Vincent Vaughan developed an early interest in music. As a child, he taught himself to play guitar and learned to sing by trying to emulate the singers he listened to on an old record player his father bought as a Christmas present for his mother.

Now, Vincent Vaughan has released his version of Richard Hawley's song 'Serious. The Americana - Country offering presents a smoother and almost crooner vibe compared to the rockabilly feel of the original version.

Speaking on his recent release, Vincent Vaughan said:

“I very much enjoy the lyrics of songs and the descriptive poetry they can create. Richard Hawley's original version had very much a rockabilly groove, which I was drawn towards initially. As I delved into the lyrics I found it very easy to develop the mental imagery generated by them. I occasionally enjoy taking songs and re-imagining them. Once I started playing about with the chord progression and adding one or two extra chords to it, the song very quickly morphed into what has become my take on it, which I feel has an Americana groove to it. I was overjoyed when I received a personal note from the writer, Richard Hawley expressing how much he liked my take on his song and wishing me well with it,”

Building on the impact of three previously well-received and captivating songs, the release of 'Serious', is expected to significantly augment this already impressive momentum following the success of these three previous tracks.

Vincent Vaughan’s style is an eclectic blend of nostalgia and innovation. As a singer, he holds a deep reverence for lyrics and melody, and will always endeavour to do what's best to serve the song, never his ego. His singing style is deeply poetic - sometimes heartbreaking, oftentimes uplifting, but always thought-provoking.

Although he has established himself as a songwriter, penning songs for the likes of Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and American voice actress Grey DeLisle-Griffin, Vincent Vaughan will be delivering a catalogue of recordings of some of his favourite artists' work. He seeks to pay tribute to some of his many musical influences, so that he may channel some of that same musical passion into his own original work.

'Serious' is out now on streaming platforms. Check it out below:
