VAUGHN

Vaughn Lowery’s heart pumps passion and produces positive change. His career has taken him from humble beginnings in Detroit to a graduate of Cornell University. From there, he became active in modeling, acting and producing screenplays. Now, Vaughn is the founder and president of one of the leading pop culture and design publications of today, 360 MAGAZINE.

Vaughn won over television audiences when he appeared in Kmart’s smash hit Joe Boxer commercial, dancing his self-titled “Boxer Boogie” wearing nothing but his Joe Boxer underwear. With this “brief” appearance, Vaughn Lowery, a.k.a “Joe Boxer,” soon became a household name. He appeared with Leeza Gibbons on Extra, Katie Couric on Today Show and Jay Leno on Tonight Show boogieing down with them and performing his signature dance. According to the Detroit Free Press, Vaughn’s “Boxer Boogie” has paid off, helping Kmart sell roughly $20 million in Joe Boxer apparel a week.” In just the first year he was responsible for Kmart selling over $1.5 billion of duds, besting Martha Stewart’s launch year with over $500 million in sales.

The Detroit native embarked on an acting and modeling career during a trip to New York City when renowned make-up artist Sam Fine set him up with a fashion photographer, Fadil Berisha. Before his appearance as Joe Boxer, Vaughn worked as a successful print model for such companies as Gap, Target, Skechers, Old Navy, Bath & Body Works Fragrance, Nordstrom, and Marc Ecko. He also worked as a runway model for Tommy Hilfiger, Phat Farm, and Karl Kani. He has graced the pages of FHM (SA), URB Magazine, and Glamour.

Vaughn continues to be busy in the media. A few years back, ABC News Primetime aired a segment chronicling his life, along with the tragic John Ritter story. Vaughn has also filmed a Super Bowl commercial, completed a high-profile Dasani Water billboard ad campaign, appeared on America’s Next Top Model, where he stirred up some controversy, guest-starred on the comedy, “Scrubs,” and screened his controversial 35mm festival film, The Young & Evil, at Sundance 2009, which was nominated for Cardiff’s Iris Prize within the same year. He was also named Seventeen Magazine’s “17 Hot Guys.” The last film Vaughn acted in is called The Company We Keep (directed by Roy Campanella), where he plays a fast-talking manager within the record industry, Barry. Currently, Vaughn is in the midst of producing a short film Chasen Life, which won a writing competition. He is also adapting audiobook Say Uncle into a feature-length film and pitching his third reality series. Moreover, he’s in the process of establishing 360 Fest, a film festival that will introduce and screen some of the most provocative short and features in the world.

Outside of Vaughn Lowery’s entertainment endeavors, Vaughn has always determined to give back and continues to keep his personal promise to be a contributing citizen to those in need. He has lent his name and support to: Women At RiskHuman Rights CommissionMarch of DimesHeart of Los Angeles Youth, and schools across the nation where he encourages kids to be their best. Furthermore, Vaughn serves as the Brand Ambassador for both Falling Whistles, which supports war-affected kids in the Congo, and Pink United for breast cancer awareness. He sits on the board of Awakening Young Minds, a nonprofit organization that conducts emotional education workshops for troubled youth.

Vaughn Lowery’s talents are only overshadowed by his winning personality, infectious smile, and his ability to capture hearts as one of the most engaging and approachable individuals in the entertainment industry.

Signed copies of Vaughn’s memoir,  Move Like Water × Be Fluid, are available on 360’s e-Commerce shop and Audible.

SABRINA CARPENTER VIDEO

Sabrina Carpenter has just released the companion video to new single “Why.”  Shot in Los Angeles with director Jay Martin (Shawn Mendes, Christina Perri) and featuring Riverdale star Casey Cott as Carpenter’s love interest, “Why” explores the age-old theory that opposites attract, “and we don’t even know why.”

 

“Sometimes differences can hold us together and I think that’s a beautiful sentiment to how we deal with divergence and how it can furthermore prove our compatibility,” Carpenter says of the Jeberg-produced song. “In the end, we don’t really need to know ‘why’ if we are confident in our own emotions.”

 

In support of the new single and video, Carpenter will perform “Why” on Live with Kelly & Ryan August 21.

The track, co-written by Carpenter, Jonas Jeberg and Brett McLaughlin, is available now at all digital providers HERE and all streaming providers HERE

 

Carpenter is currently crossing North American on her headlining summer De-Tour, which kicked off July 6 and runs through Aug. 27. The 30+ date summer trek marks Carpenter’s second headline tour, following her sold out EVOLution Tour last fall. 

 

The De-Tour will continue to bring a summer of fun and music across major North American cities such as Denver, Dallas, New Orleans, Orlando, Atlanta, Nashville, and Boston before concluding on August 27 in Toronto, ON. The tour, presented by American Tourister, will feature special gue! sts Alex Aiono & New Hope Club on all dates and resumes tomorrow night in Edmonton, AB.

On the heels of launching her North American summer De-Tour last night, singer/songwriter Sabrina Carpenter has released her new single “Why” which is out NOW. The track, co-written by Carpenter, Jonas Jeberg and Brett McLaughlin, is available now at all digital providers HERE and all streaming providers HERE.

 

“Why is a question we seem to pose daily, so there are multiple meanings within the song that are up to interpretation. We don’t necessarily need to be the same, to love the same,” Carpenter says of the Jeberg-produced song. “Sometimes differences can hold us together and I think that’s a beautiful sentiment to how we deal with divergence and how it can furthermore prove our compatibility. In the end, we don’t really need to know ‘why’ if we are confident in our own emotions.”

 

Carpenter teased the track by posting photos of couples from films with “Opposites Attract” themes across her social media accounts; in addition, similarly themed post cards that included different portions of the track’s single art were mailed to select fans across the country, driving them online to collaborate and piece the final artwork together.

The song received its debut live performance at last night’s The De-Tour kick-off date in Vancouver, BC. The 30+ date summer trek marks Carpenter’s second headline tour, following her sold out EVOLution Tour last fall. The De-Tour will continue to bring a summer of fun and music across major North American cities such as Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, New Orleans, Orlando, Atlanta, Nashville, and Boston before concluding on August 27 in Toronto, ON. The tour, presented by American Tourister, will feature special guests Alex Aiono & New Hope Club on all dates and resumes tomorrow night in Edmonton, AB.
