Jessica Vaughn is a rarity: a songwriter who understands artists, an artist who understands business,
and an entertainment industry executive who understands––and empathizes with––it all. Jessica was
still a teenager when she first turned heads as Charlotte Sometimes, a recording artist whose full-
length debut on Geffen Records found a spot on the Heatseekers Chart and prompted VH1 to name
her a “You Oughta Know Artist.” Later, Jessica became a fan and critic favorite on Season 2 of The
Voice and inked a deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, before moving on from her Charlotte
Sometimes persona altogether to write and perform under a new alias, LACES.
