When his uncle gave Tyrone Vaughan his first guitar at age 5, there was no turning back. Stevie Ray Vaughan knew this would be a valuable family trait to hand down. Even father Jimmie Vaughan shares the musical heritage. While the family is strong- willed with the guitar and all of its facets, Tyrone manages to set his own path by playing Blues, Rock, and Country, at times by mixing all three genres together.
Tyrone grew up knowing that music was in his bones and naturally built a raw and rural sound that is the trademark Vaughan passion. It’s easy to see that he knows what to do with the Stratocaster.
The Vaughan legacy continues through Tyrone and can be heard on Jimmie Vaughan’s 2001, GRAMMY® Award winning album, Do You Get The Blues?, as Tyrone co-wrote the song “Without You”, and plays guitar with Jimmie on the track (This album also included James Cotton, Lou Ann Barton, SRV’s Double Trouble & Bill Willis).
Immediately after high school, he had moderate success with his first band, “Breedlove.” This band influenced a local Texan, Justin Furstenfeld of Blue October, to create his musical passion.
Since the early years, he has performed with Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Doyle Bramhall, Doyle Bramhall II, (Little) Jimmy King, SRV’s Double Trouble and Pinetop Perkins. In February of 2015, Tyrone will be on the cover of ‘Rockstar’ magazine.
Inspiration from his grandfather on his mothers side, led to his first country album, “Downtime.” This was a great experience and root venture, causing him to be fan- acclaimed in singing, songwriting and guitar playing.
In January of 2015, Vaughan will finish recording with Royal Southern Brotherhood (RSB), their third studio release done at the legendary FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL in which also recorded Etta James, Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin.
Also in 2015, Tyrone will share the stage with RSB to help promote the new record.
You can find Tyrone plugged into the scene of the “Live Music Capital of the World” Austin, TX. Here his authentic Texas Style blood flows and aims to please. These times have brought a season of new vibrations. Soul is surfacing through and ready to pour into another album still to come in collaboration with AJ Vallejo of VMG Studios, along with Josh Knight and his creative abilities.
