Since forming in 2014, The Vaughns have been cutting their teeth in New Jersey's most prominent music scenes all the while pursuing their collegiate degrees at Seton Hall and Drew University.
At their core, they are a "turbulent" pop rock band with roots in "blues and powerpop", while the "idiosyncratic" vocals of Anna Lies gives The Vaughns "something truly their own and sets the band apart in a crowded genre". This past winter they were nominated for 3 Asbury Park Music Awards, and named one of the Top 35 New Jersey bands to see in 2016 by NJ.com.
With 3 of 4 members graduating this May, and their first tour outside of NJ borders booked, "the young group's upside is palpable in 2016".
