Velvet Vaughan Releases Debut Single “Sleep Walk”

*The Following Press Release Was Issued By Hit Points Media*

Introducing: Velvet Vaughan

Velvet Vaughan has released her debut single entitled “Sleep Walk”…

Post-Trash calls the track “a breezy alt-country song that feels as much influenced by Nashville as it does the current state of sweetened indie rock, recalling at times both Esther Rose and Angel Olsen.”

Born and raised in Nashville, TN, Velvet Ray Vaughan has been surrounded by the music industry since she was conceived after her parents played a gig together at Dollywood. Her father, a legendary session guitar player and mother, a respected background singer and multi-instrumentalist, brought her on the tour bus when she was 6 months old. Vaughan grew up touring the country with her parents, watching side stage as they performed with acts such as Lucinda Williams, Carly Simon, James Taylor, Reba McEntire and Marty Stuart. At 18, Vaughan moved to NYC to study Acting and English Literature at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.

During a particularly strong bout of homesickness her second year there, Vaughan began writing songs, drawing inspiration from influences such as Dolly Parton, Carole King, and Stevie Nicks. After writing and singing for herself for several years, Vaughan decided it was time to let others hear the songs she had carefully crafted. She sourced a band of close friends in the Brooklyn music scene, and began recording and playing shows within a month or two. “Sleep Walk” is her first single, and she is currently working on her debut album.
