    Tait was a Christian rock band formed by Michael Tait, one of the members of dc Talk and the lead singer of the Newsboys since 2010.

    When dc Talk went on hiatus around 1999, Michael started working unofficially with his own music. As his solo project slowly began to come together, Michael quickly thought of the friendships that within the past few years had become a fundamental part of his career. Pete Stewart came to join Michael, along with the Chapin brothers, Chad and Lonnie, who in 1996 had moved to Nashville, Tennessee to see where they could get in the music business. The band officially formed in 2000 and was named Tait after Michael's father, Rev. Nathel Tait.

    After about a year in the studio, the band released their first album entitled Empty. It was generally well received, and the album even broke onto the Top Contemporary Christian charts. The album included the hit songs "All You Got" and "Loss For Words," and featured songs that handled subjects like skepticism of others ("Spy"), racism ("American Tragedy"), and Michael's outpouring of grief of losing his father, sister, and brother all in the same year ("Unglued").

    After the release of the first album, Pete Stewart took his leave from the group. He was replaced by nineteen year-old guitarist Justin York. Once again the band went into the recording studio in 2002 and worked through 2003 to release a new album. The group was successful, and in November they released Dove Award-winning Lose This Life, which featured the singles "Numb" and the title song. Around the time the album was released, band members also participated in the production of Hero, a rock opera which modernized the life and times of Jesus Christ.

    Tait has not toured since 2007, and in 2010, Michael became the lead singer of the Newsboys.
