A bit about me…

About the future muse

My name is Caleb Jones or Caleb Vaughn-Jones as I am professionally known. I am not one of those narcissists who didn’t like their birth name and changed it for aesthetic reasons. Instead, I have a professional/stage name for legal reasons.

“Step Up” (2006)

In 2007, I appeared in the last scene of a movie called “Step Up” as a musician. At that point, I was the only Caleb Jones in the world of film and TV. So on IMDB, it was simply Caleb Jones as the musician in Step Up.

However, a few months later another movie called “No Country for Old Men” was released. This film featured another Caleb Jones in its last scene.

Because I was the first Caleb Jones on IMDB, I was getting credits for his work on IMDB and also received a small royalty payment for his work from ASCAP.

At this point, I decided to change my professional name to avoid legal trouble. This is how Caleb Vaughn-Jones was born, HAHA. Vaughn is my maternal grandmother’s maiden name and I just tagged it on to my legal last name. “Vaughn-Jones”. Done.

As for the other Caleb Jones, he is now professionally known as Caleb Landry Jones. He’s both an accomplished actor and musician.

Other interesting things about me…I am a cellist, originally from South Carolina and I regularly tour in classical music ensembles and as a soloist. From February 2011 until February 2020 I lived in South Africa. I now live in Los Angeles, CA.

I have recorded for video games and film, both small and large scale titles, including Lion King (2019) and Leprechaun Returns (2018). I am also the Founder of Regulus Sound Productions where we have produced recordings for video games and film.

I hope you find the articles useful, entertaining, and informative.
