Folktronica Fusion | Posted May 14, 2014
David Crowder is no stranger to the world of Christian music. After singing lead for the Dove Award winning group David Crowder*Band for almost two decades, Crowder is finally stepping out on his own. His first solo album with SixStep/Sparrow Records, Neon Steeple, will release late in May 2014. Crowder described his new project as "folktronica," a mix of front porch music and computer/electric sounds. 

The first single from the record, "I Am," has already hit a chord with listeners. Speaking of how God is our constant anchor in storms, Crowder's fans have connected with the song's message and reacted well to the new sound. As far as the worship tunes we all love and expect from David, "My Beloved," "My Sweet Lord" (a duet with country great Emmylou Harris) and "Here's My Heart" from the Passion conferences Crowder works with all come through as strong tracks. "Come As You Are" proves to be a powerful listen on the album, boasting the lyrics "earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal," straight to the weary and worn out hearts of the world. 

On the folk and electronic side of things, we find previously released "This I Know" to be among the sure-fire favorites. "Lift Your Head Weary Sinner," "Come Alive" and "Ain't No Grave" shine bright as Crowder tries out his genre fusion. "You Are," perhaps the best mixture of the two sounds on this record, reminds fans that God truly is everything we need and more. 

Closing Thoughts:
At first, I was a bit skeptical of the new approach Crowder announced he was taking. However, after just one listen, I was hooked. Both the folk elements and the computer side came together brilliantly and produced a new style for listeners to enjoy. This album stands out in its genre and, even though it was risky, created a fresh sound that will intrigue both the solo-Crowder-era new listeners and longtime fans. Neon Steeple was a pleasant surprise and is sure to be a favorite in the Christian music community.
