I was born in Arkansas, raised in Texas, and now I’m living in Tennessee. I’m a pastor’s kid with a passion for songwriting and guitar playing, and I’m constantly trying to figure out how to best use the gifts God has given me to serve Him and others.
WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?Overflow Worship is a collective of worship leaders throughout the ministry of Word of Life Fellowship. Our heartbeat is to write songs for The Church, and for The Lost. We want our songs to hit the depths of the struggles in this world and yet point people to the hope found in our marvellous Savior, Jesus Christ.
The band chose its name from a simple truth; our worship to the Lord should be an overflow of our relationship with Him. That is a choice to glory in the love and work of Jesus every single day. It's that fellowship with Him that causes the presence and character of God to pour out of our lives from the overflow of His goodness and love.
Singing songs of praise to the King isn't an act of leading people somewhere. Instead, we are inviting others to join us where we already are; fellowshipping in the sweet presence of Jesus!

What’s the 2.0 version of Citizen Way? That’s the question lead singer and songwriter Ben Calhoun found himself fielding after the band’s debut album Love is the Evidence gained them a devoted following and produced radio hits like “How Sweet The Sound” and “Should’ve Been Me.”
Calhoun heard the question so often, he decided to name the group’s highly-anticipated sophomore album just that, 2.0 “Everyone kept asking, ‘What’s the next record going to be? What’s the 2.0 version? What does it sound like?’ That kind of stuck.” Calhoun says. “This is what it sounds like. This is who we are. This is the new and improved Citizen Way.”
The result is an 11-track record sporting pop-rock influences, infectious lyrics and a creatively ambitious new sound from the trio, composed of Ben and Josh Calhoun and David Blascoe. 2.0 sees the band pushing their artistic boundaries with songs like the funk-inspired “Bulletproof” and the soulful, stripped-down ballad “I Will.” It also carries with it a decided level of maturity and vulnerability.
The band recently went through a season of changes. Bass guitarist Ben Blascoe announced his departure from the band as Calhoun and his family made the move from their home base at Judson University in Illinois to Nashville, Tennessee so that the vocalist could focus and invest in the group’s new record. The singer and his wife also experienced devastating loss with the miscarriage of his son, Jeremiah.
Calhoun relied on his music and the band to get him through the tragedy, and from it was born the album’s first single, “When I’m With You.”
