Jamen Denton – lead vocals / guitar / acoustic guitar
Entertaining audiences since he was a teenager, this Chicago-born singer/songwriter has been seen on national television several times as a solo acoustic performer. Jamen gained notoriety as the former front man of the critically acclaimed rock/ blues band Virginia Ground. Since joining the New River Band, Jamen has quickly gained a reputation as an unbelievable live vocalist and performer. His blend of soul, blues, rock, and funk has taken audiences by storm since the band began its journey. Like his band mates, Jamen has played shows with several national acts.


Cameron Vaught – drums / percussion / vocals
As a performing vocalist by the age of 7 and four instruments by the age of 12, Cameron brings a unique musical footing to the New River Band. As the son of a touring keyboardist, he was destined to find his home in the music industry. Working alongside his friend Chris Rakes in Drivn, Cameron has also worked with an impressive list of industry veterans. He has also won numerous awards for his drumming and has played on more than 6 featured albums.


Ben Caudill – bass
The New River Band's youngest member at 22, Ben has been playing professionally since he was 19 years old. Ben's time in national touring rock band Drivn helped prepare him for his role in The New River Band. As a bassist, Ben's greatest quality is his versatility as he is well versed in several styles of music. His work ethic and attitude make him a great asset to the band.
