In 1999 the power of Almighty God fell upon the small town of Rockwood, Tennessee with such a magnitude that it would change the face of music forever. There in that moment the young Rev. Benjamin Blankenship was praying for the gift of songwriting to be passed from his' deceased uncle (Terry Smith) onto him. Instantaneously, an overwhelming power filled the room. God answers prayer. Since that time BEN*JAM has progressively become known by it's growing list of fans as The Greatest & Most Underrated Band in the History of Southern Gospel Music. An astoundingly brilliant lyricist Benjamin Blankenship (who is commonly called BEN*JAM) has been known by many prestigious titles. Many hail him as the Saving Grace in the war against the progressive suckifaction of Music, the resistance against corporate stupidity crammed down the throats of an intelligent God loving public, and The Dark Prince of The Southern Gospel Underground.
While they have won awards, the whispers of the people have continually grown louder and louder into righteously indignation cries of unadulterated rage towards an industry that has failed to elevate this band beyond the point it has already come. In 2009 BEN*JAM released they're first 2 albums: "You Need The Holy Ghost Volumes 1&2"; later They released their second series "Prepare To Meet God Volumes 1-3"; and in 2013 with the dawning of their own Record Label (i.e. BEN*ADDICTION) they reissued all of these albums & released "You Need The Holy Ghost - Vol 3" along with a collection of hymns to rock all hymns collections entitled "HYMN*JAMM". Likewise in 2013 they made their way to National & International Radio.. As the list of their many accomplishments, brilliant songs, and musical genius grows - we are fearful that some points will be lost or understated in it all..
While it has been said that anyone who does not like BEN*JAM's music is spiritually decrepit, it is our prayer that you'd be revived. We at BEN*JAM would like to thank our fans for all of their love and support. Thank you for promoting live Music, & Awesomeness in the name of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
