Early life and education

Vaughn was born on February 6, 2004, in San Diego, California, to her parents, Ted and Licia Vaughn. Growing up in a creatively nurturing environment, both her parents were artists, with Licia skilled in drawing, painting, reading, and writing and Ted a talented musician and vocalist who now runs a nonprofit-focused agency.

She excelled academically at Canyon Crest Academy, a San Diego High School in Carmel Valley, in June 2022, and enrolled at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, in January 2023, with a partial scholarship.

Vaughn's musical journey began early, with her learning piano at five and later exploring songwriting. She self-taught guitar and ukulele, later taking lessons on guitar, and started honing her production skills with Logic X Pro at the age of 12.


Vaughn's journey in the music industry gained traction when she collaborated with Thomas Barsoe and the production team at OC Hit to produce her original music. In November 2021, she partnered with Dani N Thompson and DNT Entertainment to help launch her independent label, Emilia Vaughn Entertainment and Media Group, LLC, and to introduce her music and brand to a wider audience. Under her independent label, with the support of her family and DNT Entertainment, she released eight original songs, including "Pieces and Pages," "Sunflower,"[5] the EP "eighteen," "French Film," "Dead Bouquets," and “ Watch the Moon,” between January 2022 and July 2023. These releases received significant attention, and their music videos were broadcast on prominent networks such as MTV and Nickelodeon.[6]

Vaughn's talent as a performer has led her to play live shows at prestigious venues, including the NOLA Conference at the House of Blues in New Orleans, the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, and the AmeriCheer Hershey Open Nationals at Prosscored Virtual Arena. She will headline the Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center in San Diego on October 26, 2023, for the non-profit Athena's signature anniversary event supporting women in STEM.[7]

Vaughn has garnered significant media attention, with features in publications like the San Diego Union-Tribune and The Del Mar Times. Her music videos, including "Sunflower" and "French Film," directed by Dani N Thompson,[8] have been added to video lineups on MTV networks, LA-TV, Clear TV, Deck TV, California Music Channel, Time Warner Cable's Video Hits, Video Jams, Woven Media, and Gloss Media. These songs have also charted on the All Access What's In-Store retail play charts and have been played nationwide in various retail locations.

Music style and influence

Vaughn's music is an emotional expression inspired by her experiences, dreams, and travels. She aims to break the stigma around mental health by openly discussing anxiety, depression, and mental illness in her work. Through her music, Vaughn seeks to help others cope with similar experiences and promote understanding, letting her listeners know they are not alone in their struggles. By sharing her personal journey, she invites her listeners to find comfort, understanding, and strength in her music, fostering a community of support and empathy. She cites Raveena, Holly Humberstone, Lizzy McAlpine, Beabadoobee, and Saba as her musical inspirations.


Vaughn is actively engaged in humanitarian causes, demonstrating her commitment to making a positive impact beyond her music career. In response to the war in Ukraine, (and finding out the sunflower is its national flower), she pledged to donate the streaming proceeds from her single "Sunflower" to two non-profit organizations, World Central Kitchen #ChefsforUkraine and Friends of Moldova, providing vital aid to those affected by the conflict. Through her music and charitable donations, Vaughn hopes to promote the "Sunflower" as a symbol of peace, hope, and solidarity. She remains dedicated to mental health awareness, global humanitarian aid, and the well-being of women, children, and domesticated animals.
