Derek Webb, “Music, Theology, & Conscience”

Derek Webb is a singer-songwriter who first entered the music industry as a member of the band Caedmon’s Call, with whom he has seen career sales approaching 1 million records, along with 10 GMA Dove Award nominations and three Dove Award wins and six #1 Christian radio hits. In 2003, Webb left Caedmon’s Call to pursue a solo career, releasing six studio albums, a live album, two compilation albums, a covers project, two DVDs and two EPs. He caused some controversy during the last presidential election cycle when he encouraged his fans not to vote if they felt like they were choosing between the lesser of two evils. He also released the article as an audio track in a free redistribution of his 2007 Mockingbird album, which focuses lyrically on the conflict of conscience and allegiance for American Christians.
