WACO, Texas (Jan. 22, 2015) – Baylor University will welcome alumnus (David) Crowder and the Crowder Neon Steeple Tour to Waco Hall at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 8.
Tickets are on sale at www.baylor.edu/tickets and at the ticket office on the first floor of the Bill Daniel Student Center, 1311 S. Fifth St. Group rates are available.
Presented by sixsteprecords, Crowder fans will enjoy a night of folktronica, where the porch meets the computer. This tour will feature songs and sounds looking forward to the past and counting the present as sacred. Crowder also will feature the lead single “I AM” and "Come as You Are" as performed at Passion Conferences 2014.
Crowder has been embraced for his lyrically powerful and musically elaborate and unpredictable songs that have been sung everywhere from churches to clubs across the country.
In November 2012, Crowder released his first solo project, “Crowder: iTunes Session,” which delivered nine stripped down organic tracks to many of Crowder’s most loved originals.
Crowder was the well-known lead singer of the David Crowder*Band, named one of the “most thoughtful, progressive and exciting acts in contemporary Christian music” by The New York Times. The band garnered two GRAMMY nominations, nine Dove Awards and 22 Dove nominations and sold nearly 2 million albums and 3 million digital tracks during their career. The band released its final collection of new music with the GRAMMY-nominated project, “Give Us Rest (A Requiem Mass in C [The Happiest of All Keys]).” The record entered the Billboard 200 chart at No. 2 and gave the band the highest debut in its 12-year career.
Continuing to perform as part of the Passion movement and participating in university student gatherings in the U.S. and around the world, Crowder also has penned two books, including “Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven, but Nobody Wants to Die.” Crowder’s solo album debut, “Neon Steeple,” was released on May 27, 2014.
