Alun Vaughan ( b.1974) is a UK bass guitarist who has played in a wide variety of settings from dixieland jazz through Turkish folk, pop, soul, funk and even thrash metal. At present, he is most widely known for his work with UK rock band Panic Room and as house bassist at the extremely successful Jazzland club in Swansea, South Wales. Alun is also rapidly becoming known as an accomplished solo bass guitarist, receiving positive comments and accoloades from the likes of Seth Horan, Tom Kennedy, Trip Wamsley and Todd Johnson. Alun became interested in playing bass after seeing Gene Simmons with Kiss on TV in the late 80s ( that's right - it wasn't even the make up era, it was the dodgy wig Crazy Nights era!). Unable to afford a bass, he set about dropping hints for the following Christmas ( this started in the Spring!) and set about learning everything he could about the bass and music. For reasons best known to himself, he strung a 15" ruler with four elastic bands and used that for nearly a year. Alun later said that "Using the Ashbory (which has silicone rubber strings) feels like I've come full circle." Alun started off playing in rock and metal bands which rehearsed a lot but never actually gigged until he met guitarist Ian Simmons (currently playing in Chasing The Monsoon) in the early 90's and joined Nothing Personal, a jazz-rock 5 piece featuring Ian's brother Steve on sax. This band played various festivals, including the Vienne Jazz Festival in'94, and played many club gigs ( often to no-one) This band was then largely responsible for everything that followed... Through Steve Simmons,he joined Fat Barry's Soul Band, a Welsh Commitments/Blues Brothers style act that he played with for several years,leaving in 1999. Steve was also playing with rock group Karnataka, which ultimately led to friendships that led to Alun being asked to join Panic Room when Karnataka dissolved. Through Nothing Personal, Alun also met jazz pianist Dave Cottle who runs the hugely successful Swansea Jazzland.

This collaboration has led to Alun playing with some of the finest players on the UK jazz scene as well as backing visiting musicians from Europe and the US CV Alun has been fortunate enough to perform with some of the top UK and visting jazz musicians including: Bruce Adams, Howard Alden, Simon Allen, Alan Barnes, Mark Bassey,Chris Biscoe Modesto Briseno, Victor Brox,Ben Castle,Dave Cliff, Quentin Collins, Phil De Greg Barnaby Dickinson,Hassan Erraji,Digby Fairweather,Graeme Flowers,Alex Garnett Lee Gibson,Jim Hart,Jeff Hooper,Julian Jackson,Robin Jones,Tim Kliphuis Mornington Lockett,Sarah Morrow,Danny Moss,Jim Mullen,Orla Murphy Mark Nightingale,Dave O'HigginsDick Pearce,Gary Potter,Gerard Presencer Don Rendell,Sax Appeal,Karen Sharp,Martin Shaw,Solid Airbag,Martin Speake Simon Spillett,SWJO,Russell Van den Berg,Marlene Verplanck,Steve Waterman Don Weller,Bobby Wellins,Annie Whitehead,Simon Willescroft Discography Mike Shouse - Alone On The Sun (one track - "Choices") Pip Robinson - Footprints (two tracks - "Happy Street" and "corners") Panic Room - Visionary Postion Steve Waterman Jazz Orchestra - October Arrival Steve Waterman Jazz Orchestra - New Jazz Wales ( compilation featuring a live version of "Call It A Day") Amy Sinha -Heaven After Midnight Fat Barry's Soul Band - Hits For Six (compliation EP featuring "Never A Day") Fat Barry's Soul Band - You Had To Be There Fat Barry's Soul Band - We Can Drive Nothing Personal - Monkiam Nothing Personal - Nothing Personal Web linkage Alun Vaughan.com Official Blog Myspace Facebook Twitter ReverbNation Youtube Read more on Last.fm.
