EDITORS’ NOTES

Distilling the best of The David Crowder Band’s hugely influential catalog down to 13 tracks (plus one new tune), All This for a King captures the group’s freewheeling creativity as well as its fervent faith. Crowder and his bandmates won the admiration of listeners beyond the borders of Christian music for their ability to blend folk, rock, pop, and electronica into a uniquely compelling whole. All This for a King touches on the ensemble’s key elements with pulsating techno tracks (“Here Is Our King”), uplifting ballads (“Wholly Yours,” “The Glory of It All”), simmering string-accented tracks (“Open Skies”), and tender acoustic pieces (“How He Loves”). Swirling remixes of “Shadows,” “After All (Holy)," and “No One Like You” capture the group’s boldly progressive edge, fusing dance floor rapture with spiritual exaltation. Fans will especially appreciate the newly recorded “This I Know,” a stomping hosanna of praise that harkens back to Crowder’s folk roots. For both latecomers and longtime devotees, All This for a King offers a no-filler summation of DCB’s finest moments.

About David Crowder Band

Singer/guitarist David Crowder first stepped into the music industry when he realized that over half of the students at Baylor University, a Christian school that he attended in Waco, Texas, were not going to church. He began to actively recruit students for worship services and started writing songs to draw more young people in. He eventually started releasing the songs, leading to his debut album, 2002's Can You Hear Us? The album was released under the name the David Crowder Band, as Crowder was joined by guitarists Jack Parker and Jason Solley, drummer Jeremy Bush, bassist Mike Dodson, and electric violinist Mike Hogan.

Their sophomore effort, Illuminate, appeared in the fall of 2003 and was followed a year later by The Lime CD, which was comprised of two earlier live releases (The Green CD and The Yellow CD) that had been given out to fans who had either pre-ordered prior albums or attended various CD release parties. Sunsets & Sushi appeared in early 2005 before the band's next studio album, the bluegrass-tinged A Collision, was issued that fall. A spinoff of the latter album, entitled B Collision, came out a year later and focused even more on the group's delvings into bluegrass. Remedy was released in 2007, followed by Church Music in 2009. A four-song EP, Summer Happiness, featuring acoustic versions of songs from Church Music, appeared in 2010. 2012's Give Us Rest; Or, A Requiem Mass in C (The Happiest of All Keys) was the David Crowder Band's sixth and final studio album. It was followed in 2014 by Crowder's solo debut, Neon Steeple, which was released under the moniker Crowder. ~ Bradley Torreano
