Los Angeles based R&B/Soul singer Dana Vaughns introduces the world to his highly anticipated debut project ‘Familiar Strangers’. Familiar Strangers is a montage of first-time experiences with a new lover and past memories are very familiar to one.
The 6-track collection gives fans a first glimpse of what Vaughns has in store as a solo artist. The R&B/soul and pop blend project features his latest single ‘Lovey Dovey’ and other previously released tracks “Sweet Tea” and “Rough Rider”.
The project features collaborations from Jordan Ward, on “Lovey Dovey” and also Mike River (formerly member of Mindless Behavior) on “On The Side. “People can expect 25 minutes of genuine emotion. Life is filled with so many filters and a society that takes more pride in what it looks like, than what it is. So, it’s only fair to keep in 100 with my fans! says Vaughns.
