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 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.

Earlier this year Joel was featured in the film “God’s Not Dead: A Light In Darkness” while performing his song “Alive in Us” which also debuted on the Official Movie 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" is slated to release this fall and features the current hit "Pray It Up" as well as many other future favorites.
