Vaughan - British Singer/Songwriter Announces He Will Be Joining Us at Leeds Pride
Vaughan is a British singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist (Keyboard, Guitar, Voice) whose emotive blend of alt-pop and electronic sounds deliver individualism and eloquent lyrical themes of a bruised reality. Raised in the English countryside of Kent, Vaughan has supported artists including Tom Speight & Nell Bryden with 2018 set to see the release of his remarkable debut works, outlining internal narratives of hedonism and anxiety. Having been shortlisted for the Emerge Music Prize 2018 and Songwriters Festival 2018 with appearances at festivals including Liverpool Sound City, and YouBloom in Dublin, Vaughan is set for an exciting year ahead.
"Writing my music on my own personal struggles of growing up as a young gay man in a small countryside town, means that to be surrounded by like-minded people at pride who have struggled just like I did has always been a gift to any young LGBTQ+ member. As we aim to make these struggles end around the world, being part of a city that is so welcoming and open to LGBTQ+ is something I often under appreciate, but playing at Leeds pride is the best reminder I could have."
