BandAlternativeSinger/Songwriter

Edie Vaughan's music is a little retro with a new twist. She ties up her sound with rock, country and pop melodies. Her lyrics and delivery are heartfelt. Her songs cover themes about good love and love gone bad to paying homage to everyday heroes. She does not confine herself to one single genre.

Biography

I Love to create songs!
I have been writing lyrics and poems since I was 12 years old. Recently I decided to put my fears away, put my money down and walked into a music recording studio in Virginia to put music to the written words and melodies that have been dancing around in my head for so long.

EYES SHUT TIGHT, my debut EP is the result of this experimental project.

I am an unsigned artist willing to collaborate with other singers and musicians.

WHERE I'M FROM
I am from Los Angeles, California, Mexico, El Paso, Austin, and from Washington, D.C. these are the places in my life where I have been tested, molded and influenced. Therefore my music influences vary from rock to country to latin to pop.

MY PAST
I am an ex TV news producer, and on-camera reporter who spent her 16-year career in Washington covering The White House, elections, wars, presidential scandals, the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Congress, visiting dignitaries, some Hollywood celebrities and everything in between that called for a Washington reaction. I have traveled to Geneva Switzerland to cover the annual world conference on Human Rights, to the Dominican Republic to report on Pope John Paul II's visit to that nation, and to New York for Fidel Castro's speech before the United Nation's General Assembly. I worked primarily for the the Telemundo - NBC Network but I also covered news for Univision, Reuter's News Service, Paramount Entertainment, the then US Information Agency and Fox News.

I'm also a media trainer assisting private corporations and private individuals in dealing with the media and delivering their message.

But what I love most is writing songs.

Here's my first stab at putting it out in public.

Lyrics

You're My Hero

Written By: Edie Vaughan

You’re My Hero
Copyright Edie Vaughan 2007

I hope it’s not too late to say what I’ve been feeling all along
That you’ve been the biggest impression in my life

Through the years I’ve had the chance to meet them all
But you’re the hero in my life

You’re the reference to my world
And when I think I’m gonna fall apart
I just think of you and you mend my broken heart

(Chorus)
So tell me how you do it be the way that you are
How you’ve managed through all these years
To keep shining in the sky
Cause I don’t know if you know it
You’re my guiding star
You’re my hero and I want to be just like you

I’ve seen you suffer through the years
But you never bent with the wind
And when things were at their darkest
Well you always found the sun

Don’t ever change the way that you are
You’re perfect
And don’t ever let them say
You’ve got nothing here to show
Cause you’re the winner of them all
You’re the one who held us strong
You let the way
And you did it all with grace

(Chorus)
So tell me how you do it be the way that you are
How you’ve managed through all these years
To keep shining in the sky
Cause I don’t know if you know it
You’re my guiding star
You’re my hero and I wanna be just like you

You’re my kind hero
Keep shining in my sky
I want to be like you
I want to be like you
Keep shining in my sky
Your light shines so bright

(Chorus)
So tell me how you do it be the way that you are
How you’ve managed through all these years
To keep shining in the sky
Cause I don’t know if you know it
You’re my guiding star
You’re my hero and I wanna be just like you

Outta Sight Outta Mind
by Edie Vaughan
C 2009

(verse)
Goodbye. I'm gone. You're gonna miss me

you play, gonna pay for love on the side
your lack of indiscretion is something you can't hide


I know, I smell the sent of deception
you can't deny your lost inhibition

Her little treasure gives you pleasure
with her you never feel the pressure

(chorus full blown)
outta sight outta mind
What the heart don't see the heart can't feel
too late you've sealed your fate
Sooner or later you're gonna feel the burn
it's gonna be my turn
All I ever wanted was to love you
All I ever wanted was to love you

(verse)
sweet kiss, pure bliss. Those were your promises
You lie, can't deny. End of conversation
You're waiting for redemption
but won't let go her kisses

Shamed look, closed book. She wasn't perfection
you lose. Pay your dues. Feel your hesitation

Her little treasure gave you pleasure
Now your not sure
but you gonna pay
measure for measure

(chorus full blown)
outta sight outta mind
What the heart don't see the heart can't feel
Too late, you've seeee-led your fate
sooner or later you're gonna feel the burn
it's gonna be my turn
All I ever wanted was to love you
All I ever wanted was to love you

(change)
I know that love can sometimes be impossible
And the pressure of commitment inescapable
Temptation's always round the corner
But you shudda turned your back on her

(chorus full blown)
Outta sight outta mind
What the heart don't see the heart can't feel
Too late, you've sealed your fate
sooner or later you're gonna feel the burn
it's gonna be my turn
All I ever wanted was to love you
All I ever wanted was to love you
