Capital Kings was formed by Cole Walowac and Jon White. Lifelong friends, the musicians met in a church nursery and started playing music together as kids. They gained notice in 2012 with a series of remixes for fellow Christian artists TobyMac (including ”ShowStopper” and ”Me Without You”), Britt Nicole (”Amazing Life”) and Mandisa (”Good Morning”). By the end of that year, they released an EP, I Feel So Alive, and also made two contributions to the Gotee label’s Christmas compilation ‘Tis the Season to Be Gotee Too. Their self-titled debut album followed in January 2013 and entered Billboard’s Top Christian Albums chart at number five.
Jon White announced in January 2016 his decision to step away from the project. Cole Walowac will continue: ”Looking ahead I’m excited to continue this journey with you all as my heart and passion continues to be in Capital Kings.” A few month later Dylan Housewright went on tour with Cole Walowac as a replacement for Jon White. But in late 2017 they were disbanded.
