We’re a folk rock band from Bartlesville, OK. Originally formed as an acoustic trio in 2013, the current lineup consists of Aaron Vaughan, Jeff Wann, Josh "Pugzly" Adams, & Caleb "Jack" Adams. Encompassing the sounds of folk, rock, gospel, blues & soul, our sound is driven by gritty vocals over American roots music.
Our origins are found in an old country church in Oklahoma. What began as an impromptu music session led to the realization that we had something special to offer with our unique sound. Soon after, NewKings was officially formed and we began our venture into the Christian music scene where we had the opportunity to share the stage with acts such as major Christian recording artists, Shane & Shane, NewSong, Andy Mineo, and Chris August.
In recent years, NewKings has been sought as a cross-genre band, also exploring the folk, rock and alt-country scenes, a venture that has taken us across the United States and beyond, with stops in the United Kingdom. We are currently booking events across the country and have appeared multiple times on KTUL ABC 8’s “Good Day Tulsa”, were a special guest artist for the 2017 Boy Scout Jamboree at Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia, and were a main-stage artist at Creation Fest UK in 2018. NewKings' latest EP, "My Horizon", debuted at #45 on iTunes and we are planning to release new music in 2019.
