The Benjamin Gate

Combining a message of faith with elements of alternative and pop music, the South African quintet the Benjamin Gate found success quickly after dedicating their focus on their career. Consisting of lead singer Adrienne Liesching, guitarists Mark Paultz and Chris Poisat, bassist Costa Balamatsias, and drummer Nick Volsteedt, the group formed in 1998, spurred on to follow their musical ambitions after the death of a musician friend named Ben. The group quickly recorded a demo and received airplay from it in their homeland. Their big break came when an EP that had been sent to the States for mastering found its way to Forefront, via a studio engineer, and the act was signed to the label. Untitled, released in 2001, caused a stir, particularly within the Christian music community, earning positive reviews. Commercially, the album managed to spawn a pair of number one singles on the Christian rock charts ("How Long" and "All Of Me"), as well as "Lay It Down," which fell one spot shy of the top. Untitled also earned recognition in the form of four Dove Awards. Entering the studio for the follow-up, the group wanted to try and capture a more-live, less-polished feel, and Contact arrived during the summer of 2002. ~ Tom Demalon, Rovi

Adrienne got married to Jeremy Camp. I think she stopped singing in the band after that. They weren't that good of a band anyway. Id never heard of them until I found Jeremy Camp's page.
She is now Adie Camp, Jeremy's wife.

She singing by herself now & using her real name I for got but she is with another project.

This band was so defining for me as a young Christian kid...Man, praise God, they were the best band... I wish they would come out with some more music.

they are amazing.. and even tho they are no longer together I with they were so I could see them again.. Adie is still performing and going strong but the vibe isnt the same.. great none the less They are my favorite band of all time
I saw them in a small concert in Austin, Tx back in their early days with Earthsuit and Ill Harmonics, it was great because it was crammed into a tiny youth room!
hmmm...4 of 5 stars on most of their songs!
markfellure
I saw them here in Columbus, Ohio at a free concert at the Vigin Megastore for their 2001 untitled release...th e y were frakin AWESOME!!!!
one of the most distinctive female voices i've ever heard. Saw them at a concert in '01 and they were unforgettabl e ! ! Great music on both albums, hope somewhere in the future there will be more.
i heard it too, on my local christian radio station.

um, thatperson, i think you meant to say: awesome!
nice
wow they are really good...i love the style of the music and the fact that they are a christian band is always a plus :)
They were awesome, too bad they broke up.I love "Rush" and "Lift Me Up." Agreed "Gratitude" is awesome. Adrienne's music just isn't the same any more. I loved the contradictio n of the noise (read HQ music) and her voice struggling to find the truth of the music.

RIP Benjamin Gate
they are really good. i have a thing for girl singers in bands. i love almost all of them ^_^ and the fact that its Christian music is a plus. "lift me up" has an amazing groove to it.
The Benjamin Gate is very implausible. . . i n a good way. I like their song "Gratitude" off the joint Contact.
They brought me to listen to Christian Rock
