NewKings is 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, the band's unique sound is driven by gritty vocals over American roots music.
NewKings' origins are found in an old country church in Oklahoma. What began as an impromptu music session led to the realization that the group had something special to offer with their uniquely rich and earthy sound. Soon after, NewKings was officially formed and the group began their venture into the Christian music scene where they found 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 the group across the United States and beyond, with stops in the United Kingdom. NewKings is 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 the group is expected to release new music in 2019.
