Dylan Vaughn: Bio
I currently play with the Hamburger Symphoniker, Duo DA, Mardon & Vaughn, Trio Fantastik, The Cracks, Jochen Wiegandt, Dylan & Martin, D.C. Dylan & Christian, and Janice Harrington.
For the U.S. State Department, I’ve travelled and toured extensively with singer Janice Harrington, leading music Workshops "Sing Out!" throughout Germany, Israel, the West Bank, Bulgaria, and Lithuania.
I've written the music for many shows, including: Roald Dahl's, The Twits at The Belgrade Theater ,Coventry and London West End Saddler’s Wells and full UK tour; and Muriel Hermine's water circus Crescend’O in Disneyland Paris and Cirque D’Hiver, Paris.
I composed/and co-arranged with John Mortimer the music for the Steiff company musical, Teddy Bear 100 Years Celebration, Teddy; and I co-wrote Timber Tee with Martin Burns, the first internet golf club for kids; and wrote a song cycle The Marriage of True Minds based on the Shakespeare sonnets.
I played guitar and bass for A Chorus Line, Little Shop of Horrors, Cats, Starlight Express, Beehive, Guys and Dolls, West Side Story, and Der Blauer Engel/the Blue Angel and many other theater productions, and was the guitar player for Sesame Street and recorded many TV and radio jingles.
I studied guitar with my aunt Robin Lang, David Grenoble, Tim, Ed Harrison, Edgard Dana , Allan Alexander, and then at Stony Brook University, New York with Jerry Willard, and finally with Jose Luis Gonzalez in Alcoy, Spain and with José Tomás in the Oscar Espla Conservatory, Alicante, Spain where I graduated as Professor de la Guitarre with honours, Premio Extraordinario.
I was born in smack dab in the middle of America, in Enid, Oklahoma and was raised in the green lakeland mountains of New York, on the dazzling white Florida beaches, in the New Jersey heartland, on the rocky New Hampshire coast, and in the snowy wilds of Newfoundland, Canada.
