During the late 1980s, Toby McKeehan met Michael Tait while attending Jerry Falwell's Liberty University (located in Lynchburg, Virginia). Because they shared a love for music and faith in Christ, they decided to form "DC Talk and The One Way Crew."

Toby and Michael released a 2-song demo tape titled "Christian Rhymes To A Rhythm," and shortly afterwards Kevin Max (Kevin Smith at the time) joined them.

In 1989, the guys caught the eye of a small, new record company (ForeFront Records) and signed a contract with them. Soon after, they packed their bags, moved to Nashville, Tennessee, and released their self-titled debut album, "DC Talk." Although the name "DC Talk" was originally a reference to Washington, DC, ForeFront promoted the 'dc' to mean "decent Christian."

dc Talk has now been performing together for over a decade. Since their beginning in the late 80s, they have released a greatest hits collection (titled "Intermission"), achieved double-platinum sales (for "Jesus Freak"), appeared on various television shows (including "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno"), toured with Michael W. Smith and Billy Graham, formed the ERACE Foundation, released four long-form videos, and won numerous awards. Amidst all this, dc Talk has also managed to keep their message focused on Jesus Christ.
