Benjah to Release “Vanity Fare” on March 19th
Third solo album from GRAMMY®-nominated & Dove Award winning producer and songwriter features collaborations with some of today’s hottest artists

(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) — Award-winning producer, songwriter and artist Benjah will release his third solo album Vanity Fare on March 19th via Jahmen Music Group, with distribution through New Day Distribution. The highly anticipated album features guest performances by some of Christian music’s hottest artists, including Trip Lee, Tedashii, Propaganda, Da Truth, Json, Sho Baraka, Beckah Shae, Canon and more.

On Vanity Fare, Benjamin “Benjah” Thom passionately communicates the cost of chasing vanity. “This earth has nothing to offer us,” he says about the album’s theme. “We must look to Christ for the fulfillment we all seek.”

A critically acclaimed songwriter and producer, Benjah has developed his unique brand of fusing heavy urban production with pop elements into one of Christian music’s most sought after sounds. Benjah produced and was featured on Lecrae’s GRAMMY® and Dove Award nominated album Rehab, and he took home a Dove Award for producing/writing with Group 1 Crew. His other credits also include Tedashii, Trip Lee, Sho Baraka, Json, Andy Mineo and more.

As an independent artist, Benjah has built an incredibly impressive online audience with nearly 100,000 fans on Facebook and a YouTube channel that is quickly approaching 1 Million views, thanks in part to two popular music videos. Benjah will spend most of the year on the road promoting the new album, including this spring’s Vanity Fare Promo Tour and a return to Brazil this summer. Benjah has also released two new music videos from Vanity Fare – “Love Signs & Don’t Shoot” and “Grizz” – and two additional videos are planned.

“I’m super excited to share my new album with my fans,” says Benjah. “I love the way my sound is evolving and growing more and more into its ‘own.’ I’m also very excited to see the truths that I sing about impact our culture and fight against the lies that pop culture sells us.”

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
