Singer/songwriter Aaron Benward is the younger half of a father-and-son Christian music duo known as Aaron & Jeoffrey. The team released a self-titled debut album in 1995, doing well with it and the others that followed.
By the end of the ’90s, Aaron Benward was ready to take a try at a solo career and a more modern sound. Things were going well for him, and his solo debut album was more than halfway completed, when a truck wreck almost put an instant end to his career — and to his life, as well as the lives of his wife and children. Afterwards, Aaron returned to the recording studio with a better understanding of faith, life, and what he wanted his music to mean to others spiritually.
In early 2000, Aaron’s solo debut album, Imagine, the album that almost wasn’t to be, hit the store shelves. He wrote all of the songs on the eleven-track release, except for one, “God’s Here.” The album, recorded under the Sparrow Records label, is filled with acoustic Christian pop tunes like “Renaissance Love,” “He Believes in You,” “Captured,” and “Make Your Mark.” ~ Charlotte Dillon
