Stoll Vaughan will be returning to Armadillo Music April 10th, promoting his new solo record "Desires Shape."

Stoll Vaughan will be releasing his fourth solo record, "Desires Shape," April 17th. It uses the minimalism in its approach, stripping away the band and inviting the listener to be in the room. The intricate guitar, poignant lyrics, and traveled voice deliver what many fans of great songwriters are looking for.

Originally hails from Kentucky, but resides in Los Angeles. Stoll has had many placements in television and film such as Treadstone, The Office, Shameless, True Blood, Friday Night Lights and wrote music for David Lynch’s Interview Project. He is the co-writer for The Allman Betts Band. He co-wrote their debut record Down To The River as well as their follow up album Bless Your Heart, out June 2020, and opening for them on select dates. He has toured with the likes of John Mellencamp, John Fogerty, Marty Stuart, James McMurtry (to name a few). Desires Shape is Stoll’s fourth studio album being released early 2020. It uses the minimalism in its approach, stripping away the band and inviting the listener to be in the room. The intricate guitar, poignant lyrics, and traveled voice deliver what many fans of great songwriters are looking for. His last album, The Conversation was co-produced by Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket) along with Mike Wanchic (Mellencamp). Goldmine’s Mike Greenblatt saluted his “verve, daring, vigor and acuity of vision” while suggesting, “One can lose one’s self in his thought provoking lyrics while grooving to his instant old-friend voice.” The Morton Report's Bill Bentley wrote that Vaughan crafts “the kind of songs that feel like they will be around a long time, moving listeners to use them as something to hold on to and hopefully make sense of what can sometimes be the senseless.”
