OFFICIAL CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN:4 Days
ARTIST OF THE DAY
David Crowder* Band
DC*B was born out of a need for an authentic worship experience at Baylor University. David Crowder and Chris Seay founded University Baptist Church in 1995 - while still in school. The church grew - and so did the worship team. Crowder began writing songs to incorporate into the worship times at the church and eventually the church released an independent CD, Pour Over Me.
After appearances at summer festivals and regional events, Sparrow Records signed the band who would go on to be a leader in the Passion movement and challenge what worship music could be. At a time when many worship artists were sticking to the G,C,D acoustic chord progression, David Crowder Band delved into bluegrass, folk, alternative, and worship, woven together with a touch of electronic ambience.
After the HUGE success of Illuminate, the band released an electronica EP called Sunsets & Sushi, putting a new spin on their hit worship songs. And with A Collsion, the band released B Collision, featuring bluegrass and country remakes of their latest hits.
The End is nigh: With the release of their 6th full length album coming in January, DC*B will officially end. Ending at the height of popularity and musical contribution. It's been an incredible 12 years though. The band's final show will be at the Passion 2012 conference in Atlanta, GA on the second of January.
