Ben Woodward / Bio

Born in New Zealand and raised in Australia, Ben heralds from the land down under and has spent his life either in the pursuit of God or the pursuit of music. After finishing High School on the sunny Gold Coast in Australia, he founded and spent the best part of the next six years touring with the award winning Australian Christian group Alabaster Box. Alabaster Box made a name for themselves by working hard and playing great music in any place they could get into (to this date they still hold the record for the longest running #1 song in Australian Christian Radio history). After touring all across Australia, New Zealand and a brief stint in the USA, Ben felt lead by God to leave the band life behind and follow an Abrahamic call to the USA.

Giving himself solely to ministry, he wandered across the US until he arrived in Kentucky where he worked as a youth minister for one of the largest congregations in America. It was a hiatus from music that would give him time to re-evaluate the purpose of the call in his life to write songs that glorify God. Returning to music would not be easy, but this time the goal was not fame, fortune and the rock and roll life but the glory of Jesus and a generation being impacted with the revolution of the gospel message.

Today he travels all over the world leading and teaching on worship and God’s call to this generation. His authentic worship style mixed with a modern rock edge impacts the heart. His raw enthusiasm for Jesus is infectious on stage and off. He has stood on stage in front of tens of thousands and just a few, but the heart that comes forth has never changed. Only one man deserves the real glory…
