Archives For David Crowder Band

I’m super excited we are having these guys at NYWC this year.  I can’t wait to see how they reinvent themselves now that the David Crowder Band has come to an end. They are also leading worship for planetwisdom this year also.

I hope to see you at NYWC this fall, it’s not too late to register.

The end has finally come. I had blogged about the David Crowder Band ending their run (READ HERE), and this week, we saw the release of their final album, Give Us Rest or (A Requiem Mass In C [The Happiest of All Keys]).  It’s a great closing act.  I recommend taking the time to listen to it all at once, I think you’ll like the journey that David and the boys take you on.  They will be missed.

What did you think about it? Thumbs up or Down?

Over at YS we did a little experiment.  We told the 4000 youth workers at NYWC in Atlanta to all record a David Crowder Band song and then upload it to YouTube.  The genius that is Brad Sitton then took all the footage and made this incredible video out of it.

Enjoy! Merry Christmas!


Goodbye David Crowder*Band

This last weekend I got an email from the David Crowder*Band announcing that this falls tour and new album will be their last. From their announcement:

Now, another reason we are sure this will be one of the most meaningful tours we’ve ever been on is because it will be our last as a band. This is why we so cleverly named it The 7 Tour. We’ve always hidden this little number here and there in our music and artwork, sometimes it would appear in the sum of the numerals 3 and 4, and other times it would be sitting there outright, but it’s always been with us. As you know, the number 7 has often been used to represent completion, and that feels exactly where we are as a band.

You can read their whole announcement here.

Needless to say I was super disappointed, they have been one of my favorite bands for over a decade.  I remember the first time I saw them live.  I think it was 1999 at a youth workers convention and not only did their worship catch my attention, but they also played a cover of Down Under; one of my favorites from the ’80s. Over the years I grown to love their music more and more. They have the rare talent of writing poetic lyrics, but also incorporate fun in what they do (Keytar anyone?).

I will miss them, but can’t wait to see what they have in store for us with their last album and tour.

Here are a few other posts I’ve written about them over the last few years:

Thanks guys for all the great music through the years, I’m so glad you shared so much with us.

Check out David Crowder Band’s latest video. Super creative. Loved it.

I’ve been a little crazed of late and haven’t given the blog the time it deserves (I have some fun posts coming very soon, including my Comic-Con wrap-up), but for now enjoy this bit of Summer Happiness.
