Broadway Calls “Melody always comes first. It all starts there. That’s what always grabs me, that’s what pulls me in. If I don’t hear it, I’m not interested.” So speaks 25-year-old Ty Vaughn, singer, guitarist and songwriter for the newest recruits of Adeline Records, co-owned by one Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day. Ty’s talking about the moment of inspiration, the moment a song presents itself to him. “Usually, I’ll just be by myself somewhere and a melody will come to me. Once I’ve got that, then I know a song will come.” And those songs are built on instant choruses, on quick pop-punk turns and brilliant, energetic chords. It’s music that Ty says he wants to sound natural but also music that he wants people to engage with, to be able to absorb with ease. In the case of their self-titled debut album: mission accomplished.
