He was awesome & wrote great lyrics 10/10! Understands pockets in the song. Highly professional. Highly recommended.
Good to work with. Super easy and supportive. Highly recommend.
Vaughan is an exceptional songwriter, lyricist and musician who tells honest stories through his songs and helps other artists bring their stories to life. He's also the fastest songwriter I've ever encountered, having an amazing ability to write great songs on the spot.
