Considering itself “the Paramore of country music,” Vaudevylle is a hard-working female-fronted band from Texas that has been writing songs, playing shows, and paying dues since 2013. The group organically built its fan base beginning at home in Dallas/Ft. Worth and then went on to tour nationally. Self-produced, the sound is tight, vocally-driven modern country featuring four-part harmonies and formidable songwriting, all backed up with a supercharged live show that wins new fans every time out.
After spending time in both Dallas and Nashville, Vaudevylle connected with hit songwriter Ashley Gorley (Keith Urban, Thomas Rhett), who mentored the band and enabled more co-writes with well-known pros including Shane Stevens (Lady Antebellum, Sara Evans), Blair Daly (Little Big Town, Carrie Underwood) and Troy Verges (Taylor Swift, Sara Evans). This combination of outstanding songs and a hot live show led to Vaudevylle being crowned the 2017 NASH Next winner and receiving radio airplay on nationally-syndicated stations 99.5 The Wolf, 96.3 KSCS, and others.
Band members Shonna Bonds, Jude Dyllan, Steven Wilson, and Billy Walker now spend their time sharing stages with headliners like Kane Brown, Chris Young Hunter Hayes, Billy Ray Cyrus, Aaron Watson, Pat Green, Wade Bowen, and Whiskey Myers. Vaudevylle is clearly a band on the rise, one with the potential to connect with a much larger audience. Anyone wondering who might be up next on the national country scene needs to give this bunch a serious listen.
