Stargirl Cast & Crew: Darby Stanchfield

I first became familiar with Darby Stanchfield through the CBS post-apocalyptic drama “Jericho” where she played the character of “April Green”. The greatest compliment I can pay to Ms. Stanchfield is to say I remember her character and not her acting. Darby...

Grace’s Smiling Face

Grace’s Instagram Livestreams normally come to us when she’s bored out of her mind and suffering from sleep deprivation (generally speaking), or when she wants to communicate specific information to fans to correct a misunderstanding, or to share new music before she...

Stargirl Filming Underway

Stargirl filming is underway, as of yesterday, and we already have a sneak peak of Grace in one of her many titular outfits. I’ll leave it to our fashion editor Darksome Night to more authoritatively comment on it, but this particular look is even quirkier than I...

Where is Grace’s Slice of the Music Revenue Pie?

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) released its figures regarding revenue streams for the first half of 2018 and the results are revelatory for those dinosaurs (like me) who still have their heads stuck in a previous era of the music business. Fully...

Grace The Storyteller

I realize Professor of Psychology Jordan Peterson is viewed by some as controversial, but I appreciated his comments on the subject of storytelling recently as he’s very well learned and published on the subject, most specifically regarding archetypal myths,...

Lyrical Grace: Talk Good

Well, believe it or not, we’ve nearly done it. With this analysis the Vault has reached the penultimate song to complete Grace’s current song catalog. Only one more to go next week: “Sick of Being Told”. Just in time for the release of new...

How Big the Role of Stargirl is in the Movie

IMDB this morning lists two more new actors to the cast in addition to yesterday’s official announcements and the still yet unconfirmed ‘Artemis” as “Mallory Stillwell” casting IMDB claims. Shelby Simmons as Hillari Kimble Artemis...

Stargirl Casting Storm & New Music is Imminent

Before I begin with today’s article the VanderVault wishes Maria Paula López-Hermida Russo of Grace VanderWaal News a big ol’ HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Maria is the reigning queen of the FanderWaals and has been since Grace’s journey to fame began. Grace fans the world over owe...

Music Video Screenplay Proposal: Hope For Change

A lot of music gets a music video, but some, sadly, does not. After all, how could it be logistically possible to give every track on an album a whole cinematic production? It seems a shame however, so here’s an alternative: a fan’s script for a video concept. I’ve...

Stargirl & IG Stories

Okay, what now? The brief peeks we’ve been afforded, very graciously (thank you!), by Grace, her costar Graham Verchere, director Julia Hart, producer Lee Stollman, and executive producer Jordan Horowitz thus far have been… random? From Julia and Jordan (happy 10th...

Lyrical Grace: The Good Just Gets Better

I’ve avoided analyzing this song since we started the Lyrical Grace series back in March, and it’s not because I don’t love it; I do. Here’s the problem…the song speaks to me only too well. I first heard this song on September 2nd of 2016, a couple of weeks...

Stargirl Cast and Crew Features : Producer Lee Stollman

Yesterday (Friday, September 14th, 2018), “Stargirl” producer Lee Stollman posted to Instagram a picture of the latest “Stargirl” screenplay, the version that the cast used at the “table read” yesterday. I really hope someone captured the event on video for posterity;...

How the Music Industry Pays Artists & Songwriters

Disclaimer: this article isn’t intended to invade Grace’s privacy regarding her income, but merely to explore industry standards regarding how money is earned by recording artists who compose their own material, how revenues are shared with the record label they are...

Grace & Oscar

Yes, this is taking the whole concept of “putting the cart before the horse” to an entirely new level, but when has that ever stopped me? To the point then: considering Disney’s “Stargirl” is planned to be an exclusive film for Disney’s not yet launched (late 2019)...

Vault Posting Guidelines

It’s not our intention to dredge up any negative events from the past, but we’ve been receiving questions about our new topic guidelines that were introduced last week. Essentially, the ground rules laid out then, as a request from the VanderWaals, were a little too...

Lyrical Grace: Moonlight

Hi! I am finally back after a very long break. I decided today would be a good time to write, so here I am. Today I will be breaking down Grace’s song, “Moonlight”. “Moonlight” is one of my favorite Grace songs because it has such a deep message. It...

Fame – An Objective Lesson

Reflection can be an odd sensation; odd in the sense that as it progresses one discovers the missed and misinterpreted. Those little “Oooohhhh” moments. In the past couple of days I have been drenched in this, partly because I am a “little” obsessive but...

Rebooting Vault Fandom

I wrote a draft earlier this morning that was diametrically different from what follows, but after having discussed the controversy directly with Dave VanderWaal this morning, I have decided to continue my involvement with the VanderVault Project. In order to do this,...

This Vault isn’t Built of Clay

Yesterday was not a great day to be an adult male fan of Grace VanderWaal, not unless you enjoy being insulted/slandered. Greg Wells implied in his malicious tweets yesterday that not only does he find men of his precise demographic “creepy” for being a fan of Grace,...

Lyrical Grace: Beautiful Thing

NOTE: We also feature this essay in our brand new video… “Lyrical Grace: Chapter One: Before The Beginning: Songs Written Before Signing with Columbia Records” Grace wrote one of the most beautiful love songs I’ve ever heard and never used the word...

The Ukulele Revolution, & Grace’s Part in it

So I just got a ukulele for my birthday on Thursday (thank you, Twenty One Pilots and Grace for the inspiration), so I thought “what better a time to talk about the extreme popularity of ukes than now?” Let’s dig in. It all started in 2006, when Jake Shimabukuro went...
