The Conversation

Think of the poetic Dylan, the passion of Cash, and the tasteful six-string arrangements of a Mark Knopfler and you have Stoll Vaughan... This is undoubtedly great Americana music.
— The Final On Vinyl
…with verve, daring, vigor and acuity of vision. One can lose one’s self in his thought provoking lyrics while grooving to his instant old-friend voice.
— Mike Greenblatt/Goldmine
…a delicate, deep reaching moment of storytelling, it captures the essence of a great songwriter at his finest…

Stoll Vaughan

Americana/Folk singer-songwriter



Originally hails from Kentucky. Stoll Vaughan’s career in music began in the late 1990s, when he left Interlochlen Arts Academy and went to Bloomington, IN to get involved at Echo Park Studios. Mike Wanchic producer and longtime guitarist for John Mellencamp discovered Stoll and took him under his wing and helped him develop the foundation for his songwriting. Being influenced by Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, Stoll embarked on the journey of writing his own songs. By the mid ‘00s, he released two solo albums, Hold On Thru Sleep & Dreams and Love Like A Mule. Both were in the Top 10 on the Americana charts. He has toured with the likes of John Mellencamp, John Fogerty, James McMurtry, Marty Stuart and opened for a Def Leppard/Journey co-bill (to name a few). Vaughan made his way to LA via Nashville, where he now resides. His music has been featured in major motion pictures and television series such as True Blood, Friday Night Lights, Shameless, The Office, The Open Road and he composed music for David Lynch’s Webby Award winning Internet series Interview Project. Vaughan co-produced/co-wrote Sketches of American Music, the EP by Duane Betts (son of Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dickey Betts).  Most recently he co-wrote with The Allman Betts Band for their debut record, Down To The River. Stoll’s latest record The Conversation was co-produced by Carl Broemel, of My Morning Jacket and Mike Wanchic. The album’s title, Stoll says, signifies “being in a continual conversation regarding people, God, and the fears we carry around—and how music interplays with everything emotionally and spiritually.”
