Can you say "PRODIGY"?!... David Vaughn makes himself different enough from his influences like Prince and Lenny Kravitz by using an alternative edge and this is what keeps his music original... a very, very talented guy!- Chris Cantore, 91X San Diego's Top Alt. Rock Station

Biography

Electric rocker David Vaughn is San Diego's hottest new artist! His funky alt. rock single “Punk!” can be heard pumping on California mainstream radio and his energetic act has earned him opening spots for Sum 41, Social Distortion, Plain White T’s, The Bravery, 30 Seconds to Mars, Shiny Toy Guns and more!

Breaking the mold of redundant radio sounds with his electrifying new record "WIRED", David Vaughn spins the threads of funky, alternative, & 80's new wave rock! On his debut EP, "WIRED", the “Frohawk” rockin' Kid delivers a first class ticket into the future of mainstream music.
Having worked with some of the music industry’s most known (and unknown) talent, David Vaughn produced a record with stellar hits that rock Southern California. His newest hit, “PUNK!” as funky dance-rock track that has San Diego radio’s most requested song by an unsigned artist.

Christina Aguilera producer, Ron Harris contributed to the set with the ultra catchy "You & Me" filled with twisting acoustic and electric guitars and emotionally-effected string arrangements. Other fantastic highlights off of the record include the new-wave carpe diem themed "Today", and the haunting acoustic ballad, "I Won’t Forget". David Vaughn’s party-rock song “Get 2 Know U” is featured in the film “Have Love, Will Travel” which premiers on June 10th, 2007 at the CineVegas film festival in Nevada.

“WIRED”, now available on iTunes, proves that David Vaughn is "a new wave anomaly" that is "relentlessly entertaining", "completely fun, fresh, and original" and it's only a matter of time before the Kid with a 'Fro changes the face of modern music!

Lyrics

You & Me

Written By: David Vaughn

I have a feeling
Your whole world is changing
But never revealing
Just how its rearranging

And though I know how it goes
Ive been here before
Hit your stage rock and roll
Its the end of the show

We only had a moment it seems
But when we have our time Im living a dream

Living a dream when its just you and me
And thats enough all I needed know
Lived so long with feelings so wrong
But youre enough all I need to show.

No, I cant help it
Ive gotta see you badly
I could break the habit
But then Id feel so lonely

Theres a place down the road
Where we both will collide
Say hello, I miss you
Turn around and good-bye

We only had a moment it seems
But when we have our time Im living a dream

Chorus

This is the feeling that I have in the end
In all our trials I will have to defend
From all the stories youll make in the end
Until its like
Woah!

Chorus

I Won't Forget

Written By: David Vaughn (additional lyrics by E. Cayabyab)

We are crazy
We are cool
We are livid.

We’re offensive
We’re distracted
Cuz we’re in it.

I won’t forget you, I won’t forget you
I won’t forget you, I won’t forget.

We are stupid
We are wired
We’re forever.

We are odd
But so right
We stick together.

I won’t forget you, I won’t forget you
I won’t forget you, I won’t forget.

Now our time has ended
Though we’re always connected.

I won’t forget you, I won’t forget you.

Now our time has ended
And I’ll never regret it.

I won’t forget you, I won’t forget you
I won’t forget you, I won’t forget.

Today

Written By: David Vaughn

Today's the day
Get out of my way
So long those who hate
Cuz it’s a brand new day (yeah).

Today's the day
It's all goin’ my way
Unlike yesterday
I’m in a better mood.

Today’s my day!

Today’s the day
Read my horoscope
Tell me it’s no joke
Today’s my day.

Today’s the day
Grab life by the rounds
Take over this town
Cuz today’s all my way.

Today’s my day!
Today’s my day!

No more stupid lies
I won’t disguise
What is real.

Today I am winnin’
In life I’m spinnin’
I can feel.

I’ll give you the bird if you even try
To piss me off with that shady eye
What I got is a day of my own
The world’s comin’ in like stereo.

Today’s my friggin’ day
I’m a renegade
On a crusade
Somethin’ new.

Today’s the day
Get out of my way
This is the first day
Of the rest of my life, yeah.

Today’s my day!
Today’s my day!!
Today’s my day!!!

Today’s my friggin’ day.

Punk!

Written By: David Vaughn, Alan Willardson, Lee Coulter

Everybody wanna to know
What ya gonna do next
How ya gonna groove next
Baby, drop it off.

There’s a rhythm in the stars
There’s a signal in them scars
But ya gonna get 'em back
Gonna make 'em pay, huh?

Chorus:
Punk! Baby, baby rock it
Like a punk!
Punk! Baby, baby rock it
Like a punk!

Another curse at them rules
At those fickle, chainin' rules
No one ever controls you
Baby, knock 'em off.

You’re a mystery to all
And you’ll always have a ball
Like a punk you know it all
Baby, rock it off.

Chorus

Like a bullet in a gun
And frontman on the run
They know your skeleton
Baby, rock it off!

You’re a mystery to all
And you’ll always have a ball
Like a punk you know it all
Baby, rock it off.

Chorus

Baby, rock it off!

Get 2 Know U

Written By: David Vaughn

Chorus 1:
R u ever gonna be my baby
Or would u like me 2 go crazy
When I ever gonna
Am I ever gonna
R u ever gonna be my baby?

I’m just an urban-like suburbanite
Being
Another revolution
Made by fusioning.

The whole world’s getting smaller
Electrolyzing
So can we get 2gether
And hear what the music brings?

Chorus 2:
Wanna get 2 know u
Get 2 know u
Wanna get 2 know u
Get 2 know u

Stockholm or Tokyo,
Moscow or Maui
Jamaica, Barcelona
Venice or Sydney.

New York or Miami
Oslo or Cairo
Prague, Paris or Beijing
Anywhere in the world, baby.

Chorus 1 & 2

When will u want me like I want u
Then spin me ‘round cuz I wanna get 2 know u

Chorus 1 & 2
