Rock and roll renaissance man delivers a buffet of sound in Elk Valley

Tim Vaughn’s songwriting variety tells me that he draws from a wide spectrum of influences, and he doesn’t want to be a ‘one trick pony.’

Tim Vaughn

Something that I will often do when listening to new music is to compare it with music that I already know. When listening to Tim Vaughn’s album “Read Between The Lines” for the first time, I had a variety of contrasting comparisons pop up.

I instantly thought of the Canadian artist Colin James, as the music I was hearing was surely guitar driven blues-rock. But as the album continued to play, elements of punk, country and even jazz could be heard in his adventurous chord progression and talented guitar phrasing. I heard bits of Hendrix and Zeppelin tied into songwriting styles similar to Radiohead, all carried by the energy of something like Fugazi.

Tim Vaughn’s songwriting variety tells me that he draws from a wide spectrum of influences, and he doesn’t want to be a ‘one trick pony.’

At 25 years of age, the Saskatoon based multi-instrumentalist has been performing in clubs and at festivals across Western Canada for the better part of a decade. His soulful voice, superb guitar playing and professionalism have the music community calling him a “Renaissance Man,” far beyond his years. This is an original artist with a high-energy show coming to display his profound guitar talent and intelligent songwriting. He will arrive in Elkford for performances on September 30 and October 1 at 10 p.m. at Sneaky’s Pub in the Elkford Motor Inn. If you are a fan of Rock and Roll, you will certainly find pleasure in the rock vocabulary that Tim Vaughn and his band will be articulating on these dates. Don’t miss out.
