Music that speaks the truth on issues that are in our everyday lives. If you ever have a chance he is the best live performance(thats why MARS is so good). You should see him dance!

These 3 CDs are definitly my favs of my overall collection!Ben is able to capture many emotions which come through so clearly in all his songs!!The style changes a little through each CD(spread over 3 years)yet still he manages to take your breath away!From gentle/soft melodies to the more up front , his amazing voice has it all!!!!!!!
