Citizen Way is a Christian Rock band. They were formed Elgin, Illinois. The band is composed of two sets of brothers. Ben Blascoe plays bass, while his brother David plays drums. Ben Calhoun plays guitar and vocals, while his brother Josh plays guitar, keys, and vocals. These four started their band in 2004, and have never had any lineup changes! (Fun fact: this is the first band I have ever seen that has been around for 11 years with no lineup changes. That's awesome.)
They all met at Judson University, which is also in Elgin. There, they formed their band, which was originally called "The Least of These". They later changed to their current name, Citizen Way.
One thing about this band that I think is really cool, involves their lead singer, Ben. In 2011, Ben had completely lost his voice, and was told by doctors that a cyst had formed in his throat and he may never be able to sing, or even talk, ever again. Ben surrendered to God's plan for him, and said he would continue to put his trust in God, even if he could never sing again. So he went through the surgery, and hours later, came out of the surgery room singing "Amazing Grace."
The band has put out three singles, one in 2012 and two in 2013. Their first and only (so far) album was released in 2013. It is a really good album, and they are a fairly well known band now. Their song "How Sweet the Sound" has about 854,500 views on YouTube as of August 31, 2015. My favorite songs of theirs are "Evidence" and "Should've Been Me." Definitely check them out!
