Biography

Though their original meeting took place on a college campus, the gentlemen that would make up AutoVaughn took their music endeavors seriously. This was never a bunch of kids jamming together in order to blow off steam on a Thursday night. From the beginning, this was a career.

As it goes, drummer Andrew Grooms and singer/guitarist Darren Edwards were in one band, gigging on the Anderson University campus and lead guitarist Stephen Wilson was in another. This was – no joke! – a serious cross-campus rivalry wherein the two parties didn’t even talk. After Wilson’s band broke up, he went to Australia for a semester abroad, only to hear upon his return that his former rivals had left school and moved to Nashville. Band-less, Stephen decided to meet up with Darren and Andrew for a drink and shortly thereafter assumed the position of guitarist for the group. As luck would have it, Andrew was working at the Hard Rock Café alongside a terrific bassist named Ben Graham. Quickly adding him to the line-up, AutoVaughn was launched. And the name? Well they just liked the way it sounds.

A self-described fledgling democracy, the band members bring a wide variety of influences to the musical table. With the ability to combine incredible vocals with an original songwriting aesthetic, AutoVaughn rock with an awareness that is at once timeless and unmistakably modern to create a sound all their own.

    It's a shame this band never made it.

    The free track "Missing Something" from Amazon got me hooked. I ended up buying "Space" and loving it!

    Just bought Space for the second time because I can't find the CD I bought in '07 and the computers it's on are both broken... Oh, how much I love this album.

    These guys easily outperformed Cage the Elephant today.

    AutoVaughn are so very fantastic. I have to agree, Cage has the best openers.

    Does anyone know where to get their self-titled debut? I've looked on iTunes and everywhere else and there's absolutely no mention of it anywhere, save for one review I found. I discovered these guys years ago on Purevolume and had three of their free songs from that album, and I'd like to track the rest of it down. Anyone?

    What happened to coming to Indianapolis once a month? Is it too much to ask that you start that back up again, guys?

    i worked the door for these guys when they played in Topeka, KS. There was about 4 people there that weren't paid to be. Such a shame. They're brilliant!
