DAVID CROWDER*BAND was a Dove Award-winning six-piece, crafts compelling, inimitably progressive electronic rock. The band began when David Crowder from Texarkana, Texas, realized that almost half of the students at Baylor University were not attending church, which he found surprising since it is a Christian university. He and Chris Seay started University Baptist Church (Waco, Texas, United States) in 1995 while he was still a student. Crowder led worship there and continued to do so throughout the year. The church's congregation grew, as did the band's lineup.
