Biography

Inspired by Christian rock pioneers Petra and dcTalk, rap artist Benjiman found a passion for reaching people through music. Benjiman began his career performing around his small hometown of Lacomb, Oregon. Then, one day he received a call to rap for a little-known band named Callbox, who later changed their name to Kutless. Benjiman rapped on the group’s first album on a song called “Pride Away. ” Rapping on that song led to further collaborations with Kutless and Falling Up, and then eventually to Benjiman’s own contract with BEC Recordings in 2004. Benjiman’s first solo release, Activate, climbed the Radio & Records charts with the hit singles “Trace of Love” and “Activate.” The album paved the way for several nationwide tours and a myriad of festival performances. Benjiman continues his career with the label Save the City Records and his sophomore release “S.K.R.I.P.T (Spreading Kingdom Realities in Perilous Times)”. Benjiman packs some power with a who’s who collaboration: Brandon Bee, Shawn McDonald, Paul Wright, Jeff Frankenstein (Newsboys), Josh Shroy (Falling Up), Sam Mathews (Bryan Duncan, Kevin Thornton) and many more. Benjiman also brought in American Idol’s legendary mastering engineer Steve Hall to give more “bounce to the ounce!” Get those subwoofers ready! Benjiman amps up his classic blend of story-oriented rap/rock with a new infusion of vocal chops provided by his great team of friends.

    "Activate" and "Outta Time" are the best. Reminds me of Linkin Park. Cool.
