Tonight I am going to see one of the most provocative and outstanding (living) artists, Derek Webb.
I recall first meeting Derek Webb in 1999 after a show at Calvin College. I’m not expecting him to remember me, but I gave him a significant set of books… We’ll see if he remembers the books.
Derek has produced mainstream music with Christian themes through “Caedmon’s Call”, but has been more on the fringe with his solo work. I think I like the solo work the best. I say that he is provocative because he challenges conventional conservative thinking on the Church, Politics, and daily Christian living. Good stuff!
