Countdown to Christmas:
Merry Christmas to all!
ARTIST OF THE DAY
Caedmon's Call has been producing eclectic, acoustic driven music for two decades. Cliff Young fronts this family of songwriters that includes Derek Webb, Danielle Young (Cliff's wife), Andy Osenga, Todd Bragg, Garett Buell, Jeff Miller and Josh Moore. Ask any Christian performer who they think is authentic in a world of pop culture glitz and they'll tell you, without skipping a beat, Caedmon's Call.
When Christian music exploded in the 90s - playing sold out arenas and massive mega-churches, Caedmon's Call continued (in spite of their great success) to play coffee shops and bars. They always wanted to be where they felt Jesus would be. Caedmon’s Call has sold over a million units of its 15 records to date but has always been more of a community itself than a band.
Caedmon’s also helped launch or boosted the careers of artists like Bebo Norman, Jill Phillips, Waterdeep, and Andrew Peterson. The band is also a longtime promoter of missional living, through their longtime partnership with Compassion International, and more recently with the Dalit Freedom Network, an organization fighting caste discrimination in India, and the band’s own Share The Well Foundation.
Birth: The band formed around an acoustic guitar in Cliff Young's dorm room while they were all still in college. Although Cliff and Danielle had been song writing together while dating in high school.
Fashion: Danielle Young often wears overalls in concert - and the rest of the band now refers to all overalls as Danielles.
Christmas Music: Caedmon's Call is a featured artist on the City On A Hill: It's Christmas Time Christmas/Worship album.
Album: Raising Up The Dead
