Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Vaughan’s love for music began at a young age, singing in church and choir.

After six years of performing and evolving as a creative, Lydia moved to Nashville in 2015 to pursue her dream, a songwriting career. Five years later, she signed her first publishing deal with Cornman Music & Warner Chappell in August 2020.
