It's got that middle-of-the-week smell...

Caedmon's Call

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.

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.

Sell-Out: Caedmon’s Call has sold over a million units of their 16 records to date!

Currently CC is taking a break - something they do periodically to actually live life.  But they always come back together...

Caedmon’s helped launch or boost the careers of artists including 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; plus 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, which the rest of the band now refer to as Danielles.

Alumni: CC-member Derek Webb just put out a new album!

Album: Raising Up The Dead
