Feb. 26, 2015 - PRLog -- Phil Vaught grew up in Kentucky.  The son of a Minister and from a very musical family, he was exposed to music very early in life.  He was singing in church as far back as he can remember.  At age 11, his parents bought him a drum set, and he began playing at church services and with friends at social functions.  Soon after that, his older brothers started teaching him guitar and there was no turning back…

In addition to Gospel, Phil was exposed to many other music genres.  From his dad, he picked up on legendary country artists such as Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Bill Monroe, The Statler Brother’s, and many others.  His brothers, eight and ten years his senior, listened to Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Jr., Billy Joel, and Phil picked up something from them all.  His mother & sister, both accomplished classical musicians, also exposed Phil to an array of popular artists of current and past eras.

By the time Phil was in high school, he began performing at local and regional clubs as well as charities and benefits.  He became a well-established, in demand, respected musician and vocalist.  Fresh out of high school, he and the band hit the road and never looked back.

By 2003, Phil was so busy that he had bought a home in Hendersonville, Tennessee. He is known all over the country and abroad, playing over 200 shows a year at major venues here and overseas. Phil has played the stage at the Wildhorse Saloon more than ANY other artist in the history of the venue.

“If you’re looking for an artist that will get your guests out of their seats and on their feet, then it’s time you meet Phil Vaught! Excellent lyrical content in his songs, electrifying full band performance & Phil’s on stage presentation, particularly vocals, create nothing short of shock & awe! Expect this artist to leave audience after audience wowed each and every show!”   Julien Salley Jr.  General Manager Hard Rock Cafe Memphis, Memphis Music Commissioner

"Working in the studio producing this great record with Phil Vaught was an amazing experience! Not only were we blessed to have been able to work with our favorite musicians, I was personally "thrilled" to see the response on the collective faces (of everyone) when Phil opened his mouth to sing "scratch" vocals on each & every track! The scratch vocals that were meant to help to "pocket" each track could have been keepers! "  Steve Williams,  Executive & Co Producer "Drive"

Steve goes on to say; "Phil is a natural singer and a serious perfectionist. He approaches the studio just like he takes the stage, flawless.When a true artist like Phil  brings this kind of qualityinto the room ,it inspires everyone to elevate their own game & a collective vibe & groove is the "by-product"  Kenny Aronoff, (world class drummer with credits: John Mellancamp, Joe Cocker, Smashing Pumpkins, John Fogerty, Kennedy Center Honors, etc) personally told me that he had been "coming to Nashville for years doing sessions & this was the 1st time that a producer had let him be himself".  Ray Walker of the "Jordanaires" (Elvis Presley's Gospel Quartet) said after we finished the background vocals for "Live Like Elvis" that Phil & this song was the best he had heard since Elvis died."

“Music expresses that which cannot be said and what is impossible to keep silent you learn a lot about people when you listen to the songs that mean something to them.  Where words fail, music speaks, where people fail Phil Vaught heals through song.”  Trish Ashley Beverage Supervisor Grand Casino Hinkley MN

Phil Vaught on Drive, “This album is basically opening up a side of my personality that is not seen by most people who see us “live”. It is rather intimate and expresses some different angles of my personality.

So in a way, although I am usually very reserved it allowed me an opportunity to be vulnerable and give a better view of who I am to the discerning listener. And I am proud of the production & musicianship as well.”

Jeff Lawrence of CBS Radio Boston states "Phil is a crossover artist with outstanding talent, I can see a music director getting his album in their hands and sharing it with their sister stations, which in this day and age say's a lot!"
