Ben James is originally from Icard, NC and was born on January 24, 1996. Ben’s father, Eric James is a Baptist preacher and taught Ben how to sing harmony so Ben grew up singing in church and has always been involved in gospel music.
Ben’s mom, Lori, has always been his biggest fan and is a source of encouragement for Ben anytime he has doubted a future in music. He has one sister, Erin. Erin is married to Jon Bowman and they have two daughters, Kaylee and Brooklynn, who are Ben’s favorite little humans in the whole world.
These days, Ben lives in Sevierville, TN and spends his off time hunting, fishing, and playing golf.
Ben met Jimmy Fortune (Ben’s tenor singing idol) in Nashville and through that connection, joined Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver in 2020. Jimmy and Ben remain good friends. It has always been his dream to sing tenor in a band and his dream has come true becoming a member of Quicksilver. That, and everything else, he owes to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
