For Vaughn Anthony, the music business is family business. Influenced by his family’s services in his grandfather’
“Life of a Player” is a project comprised of a free fifteen-track mixtape as well as an EP, both of which chronicle the trial and tribulations of the love game and the maturation of a man. “R& B is music that resonates in the soul and I believe helps to teach us about life. It instructs us about heartbreak, relationships, and helps to define what it means to be not only a player, but also a conscious man, a working man, and a family man,” shares Vaughn. VA hopes that his rhythmic style, powerful lyrics, and the personalization of his web community and blog (www.VaughnAnthonyMusic.com)
Vaughn’s melodic notes are backed by music from some of the hottest producers in the industry. Phat Boi (producing trio of John Legend’s recent single Tonight) from Home School Records produced five of the fourteen tracks, including VA’s lead singles In Your Shoes, Curiosity, and Hold Me Down. In Your Shoes, which features Olivia from VH1’s Love and Hip Hop, re-incarnates the passionate emotions of an early Carl Thomas, and shows the thoughtful side of a player seeking true love. VA’s swaggering bravado shines through on Curiosity, boasting self-confidence that leaves women feigning for his affection. Blue Miller, lead producer on India Arie’s seven-time Grammy nominated album “Acoustic Soul,” is another notable musical architect on, “Life of a Player.”
Like in most dynamic family relationships, sibling rivalry and similar vocal timbres fuel a competitive nature between John and VA. Never is this more apparent than in the soulful duet of Hold Me Down, in which the two take proverbial jabs at one another as they battle for vocal supremacy. “It is natural for people to compare us; since we are brothers, we are very close. I take it as an honor when people say I sound like a 9 time Grammy award winner, ” says VA.
With the release, comes the announcement of the Vaughn Anthony Life of a Player World Tour brought to you by Jeff Wyler Automotive Family. The tour began July 28 in Chicago, and also includes dates in Boston, Miami, and Los Angeles. For booking inquiries please email bookingperformerVA@

They’ll think oh, he’s Vaughn Anthony’,”
