Welcome

Kelly Vaughn's music is soulful and transparent.  Her songs are written from the heart and speak to the struggle, hopes, and joy that we all experience.  Her beautiful,  unique voice combined with solid and varied guitar playing will touch your soul.  Many listeners experience what has been affectionately called a  "zen experience/moment" during her performances. One listener had this to say "Kelly's voice was kind, heartfelt, and beautiful. We were mesmerized by her..."  

 

What's been going on...

North, South, and everything in between (well, hopefully!) 

Heading south tonight to play at Square Seven in Lancaster and then up north tomorrow night (Saturday) at Sami's Bar in Mansfield!  I'm looking forward to both shows and hope to see you out at one place or another...or, if your feeling adventurous, and really, really like to drive...maybe both! :) Check out my events page for the details.  I just got the news that I'll be opening for Mikaela Davis at The Rumba Cafe August 7th.   I'm very excited about this opportunity.  Thanks, as always, to everyone for your all your support!  It seems like doors are continuing to open, and I'm so grateful and appreciative... Have a great weekend and see you soon!!
 Thank you!!!

Love is in the air...and doors keep opening! 

What a great summer it has been so far!  I am really enjoying playing outdoors and for the most part, mother nature has been pretty cooperative.  I have recently started playing more private parties and now have some upcoming wedding dates as well.  I am very honored to be a part of someone's special event and that my music and style seem to be a good fit.  It has been a wonderful experience and I'm looking forward to many upcoming shows/events.  I never cease to be touched by how connected we truly all are, especially through music.  

My CD has been very well received and I have gotten a lot of great feedback on it.  A very special thank you to everyone who has purchased it!  I am also working on confirming dates for some new venues as well...please check back soon for dates.  I am learning a lot of new songs and expanding my set list, so if you come out regularly to listen, you will be treated to some new tunes.  I also currently have a few new original songs in the works as well and I hope to be able to debut them soon.

As always, my heartfelt thanks to everyone who comes out to support me, has taken the time to give me feedback either in person or via email/website, and entrusted me to be a part of their life for a few hours...I am truly grateful!  This journey just keeps getting better and it is because of all of you.  Thank you!  See you soon!!

 

Summer is here!! Outdoor shows are the best! The Brickyard Stage, Rule 3, Benito's Patio and a new EP 

What an awesome weekend and a fantastic way to kick off the summer!  Played to a great crowd at The Brickyard Stage in Mansfield, Ohio on Friday night.  I was the first performer to kick off their Final Friday Concert Series.  What a great space and great people.  It felt really good to be playing outside and my set was very well received...even got the opportunity to be on stage and under the lights with Gatlin as they closed out their set and the evening.  Truly an amazing experience...my thanks to Darryl and Andrea.  Saturday night found me at Rule 3 in Pickerington as part of their Acoustic Summer Concert Series.  This was my first time there and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I will be there again on June 13th and am in the process of scheduling future dates, so check back on my Events page.   Also, had a great time at Benito's on the patio last Saturday...met lots of new folks and tried out some new songs!  Looking forward to being there again June 21st.  It's looking like it's going to be a busy summer.  I also have a new EP "Ordinary Girl"  available for purchase, as well as "KellyVaughnMusic" stickers.  The CD features 5 of my original songs.  Both the CD and the stickers are available on the website, or even better, come out to a show and I'll have them with me!  Hope to see you and here's to a great summer!!

Key West Songwriter's Festival  

What a wonderful time and a great place to hang out!!  Definitely found lots of inspiration listening to all the artists and their stories, and of course, in Key West itself.  A great place...I look forward to going back.  I also had the opportunity to be on the radio (104.9 The X) and chat with Vinny K. for a short interview...it was awesome!  Looks like I may have some chances to go back to play some shows!  Now that I'm back in Ohio, I'm looking forward to playing Square 7, Benito's, The Brickyard in Mansfiled, and I just got booked for a show at Rule 3 in Pickerington...please check out my Events page for locations, dates, and times.  Hope to see you!!

Square 7, Java Central, and The Brickyard Stage! 

There has been a lot  happening!  I have played two more shows at the fabulous Square 7 Coffee House...absolutely love this space.  It is always a fun, relaxing time.  I've had the pleasure of meeting a lot of new people and have received some great feedback.  If you haven't been, please come check it out...located inside Art and Clay on Main in Lancaster, Ohio.  There are all kinds of cool activities you can do while enjoying your favorite coffee beverages,and more, plus live music!

Played my first open mic at Java Central.  I really enjoyed the intimate setting and was very impressed with the talent in attendance.  I was battling the onset of a severe cold/strep throat, so was not at my best, but still enjoyed myself.  I met some fantastic folks and look forward to going back on April 18th.  If you enjoy a quiet, private atmosphere, then this is the place for you!  Come check it out...

Finally, I have been booked to play The Brickyard Stage in Mansfield as part of their Final Fridays Series.  I am very excited about this opportunity.  A fantastic outdoor venue, this should be a great show...check out my Events page for all the details.

Square 7 Coffee House @ Art and Clay on Main - March 7, 2014 

Had an enjoyable evening in the laidback setting of Square 7 Coffee House in Lancaster, OH.   Located inside Art and Clay on Main, folks enjoyed their favorite coffee beverages, smoothies, and tea, while painting and/or just chilling.  Square 7 is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to play.  A great space and great people...come check it out, I'll be there next Friday!  Thanks and see you soon!

The Grandview Grind - March 1, 2014 

  Thanks to everyone who came out to listen!! Great seeing some new faces as well as my awesome friends or "groupies" as they are calling themselves :) Special thanks to Grapefruit Moon for inviting me and to The Grandview Grind for hosting...look forward to playing there again soon.

Upcoming shows

I am very excited and humbled to share that "Ordinary Girl" has now sold over 1,500 copies!! Thank you to everyone who has purchased and shared! I am so appreciative of the support. My thanks as well to all the venues who have booked me and continue to do so...and thank you to all who continue to come out to the shows. And last but certainly not least, my thanks to those of you who ask for my original songs. I've said it before, that is one of the best things a songwriter can ask for....thank you! ❤️
