    Most bands begin with an idea, but THIS FIRES EMBRACE began with a gunshot. 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. Just a few months later those prayers were answered in the form of, Josh Hall, Zack Koah, and Steve Malone.

    Since the forming of THIS FIRES EMBRACE in late 2005, the Lord has truly blessed their ministry. In their first 2 years of performing, they've headlined and filled nearly every venue in the central Ohio area. They've traveled the region sharing the stage with National Acts such as Pillar, Decypher Down, Shinedown, Trapt, Bobaflex, Spoken, Staple, Buckcherry, Saliva, Last Tuesday, Fireflight, Eleventyseven, Krystal Meyers, and John Rueben. THIS FIRES EMBRACE have entered several Battle of the Bands contests and walked away with first prize at each event. They entered the Band with a Mission organizations Battle for Shout-fest contest and went all the way to the final round in Nashville, Tennessee where they placed 9th in the country. Only four short months after starting to play shows, they released two singles, "On Broken Wings" and "Home Again" to national Christian radio. They released their first album, Redemption in May of 2006. In the year and a half since THIS FIRES EMBRACE added songs to their MySpace account, they've had an astonishing 600,000 plays. Atlantic, Koch, and TVT Records representatives raved over their show at a label showcase in Columbus in late summer of 2006. In 2007 and 2008, they were asked to perform at some of the biggest festivals in the country, including Ichthus, Cornerstone, Agape, Sonshine, and Pro-Life Festivals.

    THIS FIRES EMBRACE continues to win critical acclaim for their live performance in many publications, internet magazines, and local newspapers. Lord-willing, this list and their demand will continue to grow.
