As the DAVID CROWDER*BAND’s headlining 32-city, multi-sellout fall tour comes to a close this month, they continue to receive praise for their innovative show and music. Of their packed show at New York City’s Terminal 5 on Friday, November 13, the New York Times wrote: “David Crowder*Band has been releasing albums for more than a decade and is among the most thoughtful, progressive and exciting acts in contemporary Christian music… They played tough, grinding rock (“You Are My Joy”) and pop-punk (“Foreverandever Etc.”). They covered Hank Williams’s “I Saw the Light”… Songs from its new album, Church Music (sixstepsrecords/Sparrow), were danceable and optimistic: they could have been by the Killers. Throughout, Mr. Crowder, his thicket of hair shooting out radially from his head, was affable. (Jon Caramanica, 11/17/09)” To read the full live review, visit:
Touring in support of CHURCH MUSIC–their latest album that debuted at #11 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart earlier this fall–the band has released a new video for album track “How He Loves.” The track features backing vocals by the DuPree sisters from Eisley. The video was shot in slow motion and in a single take at the band’s amazing recording studio, the Dr. Pepper Studio. Located in the converted barn behind Crowder’s house in Waco, TX, the studio got its name as the house was previously owned by Wade Morrison, creator of the Dr. Pepper soft drink and, according to local lore says, is where Morrison’s horse Pepper the horse lived.

DAVID CROWDER*BAND’s previous four studio albums have sold over one million copies combined and they have sold out numerous large clubs across the country including New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom, The Wiltern in Los Angeles and The Fillmore in San Francisco. With CHURCH MUSIC, their popularity continues to rise. Known for their mix of ambient and infectious electro-rock, the 17 compelling tracks on CHURCH MUSIC may not be what you expect sonically when you think of one of Christian music’s leading bands. The album includes a unique cover of hard rock act Flyleaf’s hit “All Around Me” and, in addition to the Dupree sisters, features backing vocals by Flyleaf lead singer Lacey Mosely.
