Tyketto :”Home for the holidays party”
Wed November 23…Thanksgiving Eve!
HardRockHouse is proud to announce the release of “The Road Less Travelled”, the new live album from Danny Vaughn.
With a career stretching back over twenty years to when he first hit the limelight fronting Waysted on their “Save Your Prayers” album Vaughn is no stranger to the big stages of the world. With Waysted, Tyketto and more latterly as a solo artist as well as fronting one of the UK’s most successful tribute acts, the Illegal Eagles, Vaughn has shared stages with some of the biggest names in the rock world, Iron Maiden, Journey, White Lion and many more beside. But contrary to what you might expect given such a history “The Road Less Travelled” is not an all out electric assault but rather a more thoughtful, soulful and reflective set of songs, unplugged yes, but most definitely unforgettable.
Recorded live in Newcastle on December 13th 2008 “The Road Less Travelled” marks a first for Vaughn, a vocalist recently described by Classic Rock magazine as “one of the top voices of the melodic hard rock genre”, in that it sees Vaughn & his band performing a full set of unplugged classics. Although no stranger to acoustic shows, most notably touring the UK alongside Journey in support of his Traveller album, the Newcastle show is one of only two that Danny has played acoustically with his full band and, judging from the ecstatic reaction of the crowd on the album, it was something that was long overdue.
Mixed by Pete Coleman, the man behind the desk for the Traveller album “The Road Less Travelled” is the perfect snapshot of what was a perfect gig. From the Tyketto classic Lay Your Body Down to newer numbers Visions & Making Waves, “The Road Less Travelled” truly evokes the spirit & atmosphere of what was a remarkable live performance & showcases Danny Vaughn at his very best.
As Danny says
“This album was made by and for my friends – the friends that were behind the scenes encouraging me to do it, the friends on the stage that worked so hard to make it happen and the friends in the audience that came to celebrate and have fun along with us. Even if you weren’t there, you’re a part of it too. Singing is the best way I know to express myself. It s the skill I use for digging deep. Thank you for listening. Thank you for cheering. Thank you for coming along for the ride”.
The Road Less Travelled Track Listing:
Traveller; Making Waves; Soldiers & Sailors On Riverside; Restless Blood; Damn; Jenny Doesn’t Live Here Anymore; Visions; Nothing At All; Lifted; A Million Miles Of Road; When You Walk Away and Lay Your Body Down.
The Road Less Travelled is available now exclusively from http://www.hardrockhouse.com. For more information, to hear samples from the album or to order please visit http://www.hardrockhouse.com/TheRoadLessTravelled.htm
Following on from his two hugely successful Christmas shows, HardRockHouse is pleased to announce that Danny Vaughn’s Standing Alone EP is now available. Featuring stripped back interpretations of both Tyketto & Vaughn classics the EP, which has been unavailable since the 2002 pressing very quickly sold out, should be a “must have” for any classic rock fan.
From the beginning of his career Vaughn, the Tyketto & former Waysted vocalist, had always been the token acoustic guitar player who added a little extra flavour to the sound of the bands with which he was involved. The idea for Standing Alone came about following a UK tour which saw Vaughn taking to the stage alone every night to play a song acoustically. Such was the reception that these interludes received that soon after he invested in some home recording equipment and Standing Alone began to take shape. As Vaughn states: “The idea was to see how some songs from my near and not-so-near past would sound reinterpreted”. And the result is nothing short of spectacular. Emotional and honest Standing Alone is the sound of vocal and guitar working together at their best, the simplicity of the arrangements proving just how good Vaughn’s songs truly are.

Danny Vaughn posted the following on his blog today:
Just when I thought my life was calming down some, it’s all gotten even crazier! I’ve got a lot to share with you about solo shows, new cds, old cds, TYKETTO shows and ILLEGAL EAGLE shows so sit back and get comfortable!
First off, I want to remind everybody about the Danny Vaughn Unplugged semi acoustic Christmas Bash!!! A lot has changed since we first had the idea of making these acoustic Christmas shows of mine a small tradition. We are doing 2 shows, Dec. 12th at JB’s in DUDLEY, UK and Dec. 13th at THE CLUNY in NEWCASTLE UK. The band is now a 5 man line up with myself and Tony Marshall on guitars, Lee Morris on Drums, Steve Mckenna on bass, and a newcomer to our family, Mike Corfield ..boards. We are going to be doing a variety of songs from all through my career with some special attention paid to a number of songs that haven’t been played much, if at all, in a live setting. This will include songs from both FTI albums as well as all my solo records, and, of course, some Tyketto thrown in for good measure. Rather than an acoustic show, think of it more like an MTV Unplugged sort of vibe. At the shows we’re also gonna have t-shirts for the event and, I’m very proud to say, in collaboration with the fab people at www.hardrockhouse.com we are re releasing my old acoustic cd “Standing Alone”. I only ever had 1,000 copies made in the first place and they were long gone back in 2002. It’s a very basic, stripped down version of some of my better known songs and was a real labour of love to make. It will be available for sale at the shows for 6 pounds, but if you’re unable to be there, or live in another part of the world you can order it here at: www.hardrockhouse.com/StandingAlone.htm
If you order on line it will cost 7 pounds (includes shipping) to the UK, 7.50 pounds (including shipping) to the rest of Europe and 8 pounds (you guessed it, including shipping) to the rest of the world. There are also some samples on the web site for you to listen to.
But it ain’t over yet!! We have decided to do a live recording of the Christmas Bash at the Cluny, (for which there are only 5 tickets left, btw, and you can get them at http://www.ticketweb.co.uk) for release next year. There will be a very limited edition double disc available only to the people that attended the shows and you can place an order by filling out a form over at the merchandise desk at either show. There will be a single disc version available to everybody else sometime early next year through Hardrockhouse.com
We are all really excited about having this chance to make it a big Christmas party with all of our friends so make sure you come prepared to sing, clap, and generally get heard!!
On to TYKETTO news. We all want to say a huge thank you to everyone at Firefest. There were so many people that I talked to that were supportive and happy to see the band play as well as so many members of great bands that were all there to show support for the entire event. I would like to extend a personal thank you to 2 gentlemen that I had the pleasure of discussing my personal passion, song writing with on the day. I’m no good with names but one of you I met back stage doing a project for college and the other was a young fella from New Jersey I met at the hotel bar that damned near made my jaw hit the floor by seeming to understand exactly how and why I write music in the first place. It was a pleasure talking with you both.
As Tyketto was working with a new line up we were really pleased at how well received we were. And let’s face it, PJ’s guitar playing was about as powerful as a Sherman Tank! He is now a permanent member of Tyketto and we have also decided to add a very well known keyboard wizard from the New Jersey area, Bobby Lynch, to the family. So, it’s time to start touring again! And here are the dates for our “Around the world in 18 Days” 2009 tour!

And this is only the beginning! Tyketto are also going to be playing in South America again in May (dates will be announced soon) and are now in serious negotiations with summer festivals in the US and in Europe and Scandinavia. So, after a long hiatus, we’re going to try and visit all our friends around the world! Stay tuned, true believers!
THE ILLEGAL EAGLES just finished a really successful tour of the UK that lasted through 2 and a half months and covered about 30 or more shows. Next year it’s getting even bigger with an ambitious new set and some of the biggest venues we have yet played over almost 40 dates. The plan next year is to do the entire first set devoted to songs from “The Long Road Out Of Eden” album and the second set will be all of the classics that we can cram in. We are pleased to be playing such amazing venues as the Edinburgh Playhouse, Belfast Waterfront, and The Bournemouth Pavilion, to name a few, but the most amazing one of all is the Indigo 2 in London, where the Eagles themselves first premiered their new album. I know I’ve got a lot of friends in London dying to get to show, well this would be the one. For more info, please go to www.illegaleagles.com
Okay, my head is spinning from all this so yours certainly must be. My thanks to so very many people I’ve met at all the shows I’ve done this year. It’s been such a pleasure to be back out on the road so much again. Thanks also to our crews, drivers, promoters, and managers that made the whole thing possible.
And I want to wish all of you the best of everything for the Holidays!
See you soon,
MULTI talented vocalist/guitarist DANNY VAUGHN is having a very busy few months at the moment. Not only has he recently headlined Firefest V fronting Tyketto but he is also currently out on the road with the Illegal Eagles throughout October & November performing over twenty shows with one of UK’s top tribute bands. Mind you if all of that wasn’t enough Vaughn will round out 2008 with a pair of solo acoustic show in December at The Cluny in Newcastle & Dudley JB’s.
As Vaughn himself says “I’ve always loved playing these acoustic shows, the audience really appreciate what we do but this time around I wanted to do things just a touch differently for them, turning the show into a kind of story teller’s night. Instead of it being just myself I’ll be bringing along a four piece band and of course the set list will include several of the Tyketto and Vaughn regulars but the plan is also to present a decent amount of the songs that don’t often get played live. It’s basically going to be a gathering of friends at Christmas with the added benefit of some great music.
In addition to the show itself it is also planned to record the gigs for a live release early in 2009.The plan will be to issue two versions of the album, a very special limited edition version that will only be available to those who actually attend the gig which will feature a different track listing to the second version which will go on general sale.

Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of FROM THE INSIDE second album “Visions” on August 1st 2008.
FROM THE INSIDE is the project that marked the start of the cooperation between legendary Melodic Rock singer Danny Vaughn (Tyketto) and Frontiers Records. Released in September 2004, the first album was welcomed with great acclaim from both fans and press and it finally brought Danny back to the classic Melodic Rock sounds. Together with producer Fabrizio Grossi (Glenn Hughes, Starbreaker) he was able to put together a finely crafted and top quality contemporary Melodic Rock release.
In the winter of 2007, Danny and Frontiers Records President Serafino Perugino once again discussed the production of a true Melodic Rock record in the vein of classic Journey and Tyketto that could follow in the footsteps of the successful debut – From The Inside. Fab Grossi was again recruited and the two of them worked on the songwriting, along with keyboardist Eric Ragno.
Danny says: “I always like the idea of a challenge that steps outside of what I normally do. I have to approach the writing and performing of the songs from a different angle than I would with my own stuff. Fabrizio and I set out some guide lines of the type of songs that we wanted to do and we kept coming back to the idea of doing an album with a real Journey vibe. How challenging is that? Having just come off tour with Journey themselves, I was in the right frame of mind to do that and I think the 6 songs that he, Eric and I wrote together really show what we’re capable of. “From The Inside” was a very successful album with my fans, so I was very interested in trying another one. Let’s see what they think!”
The songs were later complemented by additional killer tracks penned especially for the album by Tom and James Martin (of Khymera, Ted Poley and House of Lords fame), with “Love Is No Stranger” by Joey Carbone (Joseph Williams) later added to the album, thus completing the tracklisting.
Recording sessions finished in the winter of 2008 with Jimi Bell (House of Lords), handling guitar duties and Peter Lobo on drums. Tommy Hansen (TNT, Jorn, Pretty Maids, Helloween etc) took care of the mix in April.
The result is a truly amazing Melodic Rock album with a harder edge: a flawless collection of extremely well-written songs, with tight musicianship and the vocals… well, this just may be Danny Vaughn’s greatest vocal performance to date. “Visions” will absolutely take your breath away. A must have release for 2008!
Final tracklisting includes:
Light Years (also available on ROCK THE BONES vol. 6 sampler cd and specially available for prelistening in streaming on www.myspace.com/frontiersrecords page for the week); Making Waves; If It’s Not Love; Listen To Your Heart; Love Is No Stranger; 21st Century; Days Of Hunger; Visions; Moment To Moment; One More Night In Heaven; Push Me Off; Telemetry.
