BILLY BALLENGER / FRONT MAN / LEAD VOCALS
Billy found his passion for music as a young boy growing up in Indiana. He remembers playing old records while he slept to memorize the lyrics. Yet as a child, he was troubled and bullied which ultimately led to juvenile incarceration. By age eighteen Billy became a young married father living the party life.
Burglaries and violence prompted a SWAT team to raid the Ballenger home where he and his wife were arrested. Their 9-month-old daughter was taken away and they were each sentenced to six years in prison with the Indiana Department of Corrections. While serving time in prison, Billy found the hope of Jesus Christ and his life was radically changed. He and his wife were miraculously released from prison one year early and received full custody of their daughter. Billy then began to take steps toward pursuing his childhood dream of being a singer. Through years of hard work, his music developed into a professional career that has led to performances in China, Russia, The United States, Canada, worldwide television, and Christian music's largest annual tour Winter Jam Spectacular. Billy has an expansive resume with enormous passion and experience. His Alternative music style features a unique way of integrating crowd participation that will not be easily forgotten. With songs that touch the heart, coupled with a God-given ability to captivate an audience; Billy Ballenger and Break the Grey have reached thousands of lives and their impact on this generation has no limits.
