Biography

Stairs To Korea is Will Vaughan, a frighteningly talented half-Icelandic multi-instrumentalist who crafts skewed pop music using an array of effects, synthesisers and a dinky white guitar. Sugar-coated harmonies meet bended brass lines and intricate guitar motifs in his unique paens to growing up, going out and getting lost in the 21st century.

After spells ranging from being a teenage drummer in a touring hardcore band to turning up in countless London groups playing a trumpet, organ, drums or kronenberg can, to supporting the likes of The Magic Numbers and Noisettes and gracing the main stage of The Secret Garden Party, Will has spent 2009 gaining considerable acclaim in a short time for Stairs To Korea, bringing his one-man incarnation to the London circuit.
