The Promise Heroo is one of the Cleveland area’s known pop/punk acts. You may run into frontman, Bobby Vaughn, at a lot of shows in the Cleveland/Akron area.

When and how did The Promise Hero come together?
“Daniel Weiss and I were in bands together throughout high school and finally formed The Promise Hero in 2005, my senior year.”
What bands/artists would you consider some of your influences?

Who are some of your favorite local bands from the Cleveland/Akron area?
“Smokescreen, My Mouth Is The Speaker, Yelloh, Call It Fiction, Into The Crowd, Runaway Brother and anything Daniel Weiss and Jeff Dilorenzo record.”
