Biography

Most bands begin with an idea, but THIS FIRES EMBRACE began with a gun shot. On December 8, 2004, Aaron Benner, lead singer of well known central Ohio band Liquid6Teen, was stage right at a Columbus concert venue called the AlRosaVilla when a crazed gunman rushed the stage and began firing. When it was all over, five people were dead including famous Pantera guitar player Dimebag Darrel Abbott.

The Lord used this tragic event as a catalyst to a life altering change in Aaron. After months of soul-searching, Aaron felt the Lord’s calling on his life. Aaron was compelled to use his musical talents as a ministry. He left Liquid6Teen at the pinnacle of their popularity and began praying for the Lord to send him Christian musicians that shared his calling.

One by one they came. First, the Lord brought guitar player Marc Leist to Benner. That same day, Leist had left his own non-Christian band because he too shared Aaron’s desire to serve the Lord through music. After expressing their common spiritual and musical interests, they decided to unite in their search for other band members. Next came drummer Josh Hall. Darin Keim, lead singer of popular Christian band Staple and a friend of Aaron’s, knew about his search for band mates and introduced the singer and drummer. Immediately there was a connection. Benner, Leist, and Hall began writing music together as the search continued. Hall knew of another guitarist as well as a bassist.
