Joel Vaughn has has a sound all his own. Daring to defy a musical characterization with his first label signed EP “Kinetic” in 2016, He pushed his musical boundaries with a sound He had always wanted to create but had never tried. It was a success and that EP resulted in a Billboard top 20 hit with his first radio single “Wide Awake”.

In 2017 Joel toured the U.S. on the heels of the success of “Kinetic” and with that momentum He released his second EP “Surrender”. That release drew national attention with his single “As You Are” and also charted as a Billboard top 20 hit. The "Surrender" EP was later nominated for “EP of The YEAR” in the We Love Christian Music Awards.

This year Joel made a cameo appearance in the film “God’s Not Dead: A Light In Darkness” and performed his song “Alive in Us”. That song was also featured in the soundtrack.

Joel has returned with a new single “Pray It Up”, which is already running up the Billboard charts. It’s a fun pop anthem that is a simple call to prayer that reminds us of the power that comes with consistent communication with God.

Joel's New Album "Control" will be released as a two part EP series digitally on July 27 and the physical album will be available later this year.
