Derek Webb

Although he works out of the thematically conservative contemporary Christian pop genre, singer/songwriter and guitarist Derek Webb has an agitator's soul and a flair for the controversial, approaches he uses in his music to force careful thought on vitally important issues. Born on May 27, 1974, in Memphis, TN, Webb attended high school in Texas, and was one of the founding members of the Houston-based Christian pop group Caedmon's Call when they formed in 1993, and he remained with the group through several albums before leaving to go solo in 2003. His first solo project, She Must and Shall Go Free, released that same year, demonstrated Webb's refreshingly maverick and uncompromising approach to Christian music, and the album drew a lot of critical attention, both pro and con. A sophomore effort, I See Things Upside Down, followed in 2004, along with a live album, The House Show. The impressive Mockingbird surfaced in 2005, along with the concert DVD How to Kill and Be Killed. In 2007 Webb released matching collections of some of his early songs, One Zero (Acoustic) and One Zero (Remix), along with a highly anticipated fourth studio project called The Ringing Bell. Stockholm Syndrome appeared in 2009. Married to fellow singer/songwriter Sandra McCracken, Webb currently makes his home in Nashville. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

Jesus is awesome!!!!

The notion that Christianity entails not saying 'naughty words' is absurd. Don't take the Lord's name in vain. Don't lie. Speak appropriatel y to the circumstance s . All of that. But don't say 's**t'? That's a recent invention of a mostly American subculture. I've got no problem with that subculture, but don't mistake it for Christianity .
Derek Webb is the best!! I'm just addicted to his poignant lyrics and musical skill. If you ever have the chance to see him live, please do! I saw him perform an acoustic solo show (very cool hearing some of the 'Stockholm Syndrome' songs on one guitar) and he's just excellent, excellent, excellent. My fiance and I decided to use a song from 'I See Things Upside Down' for our first dance at our wedding; we're big fans! :)

You people who are being critical of Derek when is the last time you got your hands dirty so to speak in the world? Christians in America live in a Christian sub cultural bubble and they are so afraid to get infected by the world that their religion has no impact to the broader culture. Jesus modeled a radically different way of living when He was here. He modeled radical love that went into the byways found people where He found them and touched them with His love.I believe if Jesus came back
I am surprised some of you take umbrage at Donna and Zelh's condemnation . Remember, many contemporary Christians, if living in Christ' time, would be angry for the company He kept, His message and love for the poor & downtrodden . Christians are certainly known for shooting their wounded. I pray Derek won't water down his message and lyrics. Watered down messages and lame production copied directly from current pop charts make most Contemporary Christian music totally miss the mark.
The fact that a "Christian" would be upset by the word "S**T" in a song and then that "christian" would use that as a reason to say that the song writer is not a Believer!! this is why the world is turning away for the church today. How can you love the lost when we are so offended by some words in a song.
So, why isn't Stockholm Syndrome available on Pandora? I'm new to Derek Webb, but I thought it'd be nice to seed from a song on that album. Oh well.
First of all, words are words. Saying crap is exactly the same meaning as "s**t" and sometimes I think Christians become so weighed down with proper etiquette and not saying certain "bad" words that we forget that the intention is more important. What makes one word worse than another? Does the Bible not speak more on what the intention behind sin and words are then the words themselves? "Let no unwholesome thing proceed from thy mouth" How is crap, poop etc. any more wholesome than "s**t"?
I have to agree with zelh11. Derek does have talent, and his lyrics can be honest and convicting, but I find it hard to use the terms 'believer' and 'christian artist' to describe someone who uses profanity. Are we supposed to lower our standards to get a point across? Of course it matters more that people (regardless of who they are) are dying without Christ than it does that Derek has used profanity, but that doesn't give him an excuse to do it. And he doesn't do it just once.

If I may, I think it's being just a *bit* blunt and generalizing of Derek Webb to say that Christians "sit like don't give a s**t about 50,000 people who are dying today." Perhaps I'm misunderstan d i n g something, but I find it a bit ironic to say something like that in the same song which he tells people not to "be so damned reckless with the words speak."
Derek is a refreshing burst of candor, honesty, and stunning courage, especially in a genre that is typically filled with sappy repetitive ballads and choruses. His critics should stand in silence and listen to what he's actually saying. Thanks Derek for a being a voice...

He's added a new album, "Stockholm Syndrome" since Sept 1, 2009. It's a definite departure for him (from acoustic to electronic). His lyrics have not changed, though, and are more provoking than ever, especially his inclusion of sh*t on the song, "What Matters More." (Unprecedent e d for the "Christian" label). The title is meant to ask, "What matters more - the fact that Christians hate homosexuals, many of whom are dying without Christ, or the fact that I just said the word sh*t?"
I think derek webb is the best songwriter in christian music today. I don't get into this style of music as much as I do harder rock, but his lyrics are just awesome! Its nice to listen to something more mellow every now and then too!

Excellent synopsis. Need to include the album "The House Show" to make this collection complete.
Derek Webb is the closest thing to the prophet Jeremiah that American Christianity has ever seen.
How about adding his wife, Sandra McCracken

Great song writer....gi v e s you something to chew on.

He speaks the truth! It shows how he isn't in it to make a name for himself but how he is really a believer and in it for Jesus! Thanks Derek
I agree Jason, I am continually convicted and challenged by his words no matter how many times I have heard a certain song.
Webb is a refreshing voice in an often canned genre of Christian music. His songs challenge how we vote, think, and most significantl y how we live. Very few Christian artists truly challenge how we live on a daily basis.
Very encouraging and sincere.
