Vaughn started his lower primary education at Walvis Bay Primary school, before moving on to Walvis Bay High school.

He is currently a Grade 10 learner at Dolphin Secondary school. Although he has a soft spot for modern folk, Vaughn says he tries not to limit himself to a single genre because he has passion for all kinds of music and prefers to perform in different genres. “Music has always been a part of my life, and something I have shared with various inspirational, musical family members. I’ve always enjoyed entertaining people from a small age, but took it more seriously as from the age of 11 years where I started my training as a classical singer at the Wilna Liebenberg School of Music” he explains.

The talented artist says he has competed in various competitions which all gave him good results regarding his music. Vaughn composed his first song at the age of 14 and has been entertaining people on a different level ever since.

He further states that he unfortunately has not released an album yet as he is still busy building up his fan base before he records anything. Vaughn admits there were talks of a record deal from Traxstudio in South Africa but nothing came of it and he remains a free agent.

The young talented artist has quite a few performances in his name both locally and beyond our borders. “I qualified for a singing competition in Bloemfontein once and ended up as the judge’s choice. Locally I have been busy absolutely everywhere and one of my previous special performances was opening for Zip Zap Circus” Vaughn says proudly.

Vaughn says he has been invited to entertain various sectors of the public and the response rose above his expectations to a point that his calendar is filling up with booking requests. Other performances include entertaining at various local restaurants, and local Vaughn playing the strings on his guitar radio stations.
