“I’ve walked in many different shoes in a short time, ratty, high top Nikes, muddy, combat boots, shined, wing-tips and now barefoot,” stated Vaughn founder of the Control Freaks. “You learn something new about yourself and life, every time you put on new shoes.”

Creating music from an array of musical paints, Vaughn’s “barefoot” comment is essentially a back to roots proclamation. Nothing is set aside. Nothing is off limits. Nothing is left undone. The music that comes forth is just a raw, expressive, yet sometimes polished, blend of sounds that express the life Vaughn has lived... so far.

The Control Freaks are essential one man, Danny Vaughn. Of course, the irony is found in that and the plural name of the band. It is impossible to have more than one type A personality in control of anything. Vaughn developed from a diverse musical background. Depending on the listener’s taste palette, different influences appear throughout the music.

French journalist and writer, Honore de Balzac, possessed those titles. D. Vaughn has those same characteristics.

“I’ve walked in many different shoes in a short time, ratty, high top Nikes, muddy, combat boots, shined, wing-tips and now barefoot,” stated Vaughn founder of the Control Freaks. “You learn something new about yourself and life, every time you put on new shoes.”

The Control Freaks are essential one man, Danny Vaughn. Of course, the irony is found in that and the plural name of the band. It is impossible to have more than one type A personality in control of anything. Vaughn prefers the ability to choose who is performing with the band and who is not.

Vaughn developed from a diverse musical background. As a result, he prefers musical partners with the flexibility to appreciate and combine those genres. The influences of many artists and styles show in the music of the Control Freaks. Depending on the listener’s taste palette, different influences appear throughout the music.

The quote by Honore de Balzac above refers to the creation of music, experienced by Vaughn. He has experienced power through the barrel of a rifle, the black letter of the law and the music he creates. Vaughn states, “I’ve accomplished many things in my life, but music, my music, is what holds my life together.”
