From the opening strains of “Make The Most Of It” to album closer “Satisfied,” an expressive moment of worship featuring Emily Irene Fertig, themes of resilience and hope are amplified atop Vaughn’s signature synth-pop grooves. Louder Than The Lies is anchored by the deeply personal title-cut, a timeless message encapsulating Vaughn’s story.
“Like many, I’ve had painful experiences in life that led to self-doubt, depression and anxiety, eventually taking me down a path I felt I couldn’t escape,” he shares. “A few years ago, I turned a corner and refused to continue accepting the lies that I was unworthy, unloved and not good enough.”
Louder Than The Lies also features Vaughn’s latest single, “Already Done.” An anthem of empowerment in the face of obstacles, the track is currently #22 on Billboard’s Christian AC Indicator chart. Additional highlights of the project include the acoustic guitar-driven “Seasons”; “I Would Be Lost,” a joyful celebration of our home in Christ; and the poignant “It’s Okay,” which Vaughn wrote for a young boy following the loss of his mother.
