Describing the group, MSN writes, “In only a couple of years, David Crowder and his band have single-handedly redefined what contemporary Christian music should sound like. While Crowder is unafraid to make direct and straightforward pledges to his savior, he seems extremely restless creatively and tries his hand at any style that suits him. Even Crowder’s fans in the Christian music community had to be blown away by the album A COLLISION (OR 3+4=7), a literate, pensive and complicated album about death. It won the Dove Award for Best Rock Album, and has even secular fans wondering what’s up next.”
Up next is B COLLISION: THE ESCHATOLOGY OF BLUEGRASS, a companion recording to A COLLISION that hits stores everywhere June 27. Greatly expanding on the acoustic folk and country music ideas that were hinted at on the diversely styled A COLLISION, this inventive new mid-priced release includes a full-length studio version of Loretta Lynn’s “Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven (But Nobody Wants To Die)” as well as flat-out foot stomping concert renditions of “Lift Or Be Lifted” and Hank Williams Sr.’s “I Saw The Light.”
