Joel Vaughn

Joel Vaughn grew up pursuing one passion: To create music and lead people to Christ. He started as a church worship leader and then stepped out to pursue full time music ministry in 2013. With his first label signed EP “Kinetic” in 2016, he pushed his musical boundaries with production leaning toward Pop and EDM. That EP resulted in a Billboard top 20 hit with his very first radio single “Wide Awake”. In 2017 He toured the U.S. on the heels of the success of “Kinetic” and with that momentum He released his second EP “Surrender”. The single “As You Are” charted in the Billboard Hot AC chart top 20. The “Surrender” EP was later nominated for “EP of The YEAR” in New Release Today’s “We Love Christian Music Awards.” In 2018 Joel was featured in the film “God’s Not Dead: A Light In Darkness” while performing his song “Alive in Us” on the soundtrack. He released his single “Pray It Up” this year and it debuted at #42 on the Billboard Christian National Airplay chart and gained a million streams within 4 months across all streaming services.
