A native of Asheville, North Carolina, Mr. Vernon attended Brevard College and Georgia State University. His principal teachers were Edward Kleinhammer (bass trombone) and Arnold Jacobs (tuba), both former members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Review:
"Vernon's musicality throughout the disc is subtle in some places and incredibly moving in others. The real highlights of the recording are his beautiful sonorous tone and luxurious lyrical playing..." (James Meador for The International Trombone Association Journal)
