Derek Webb This Past Saturday

Sitting back about 75 feet didn't really allow me to get a very good close up shot from the concert, and we were all seated during the entire deal. Therefore, all my shots (less than 10) looked something like this. On the other hand, Derek Webb was great. One of the things I loved about his concert was that there was no band, no flashy super-strobbed lighting effects, no hype and baseless lyrics. It was soul. It was sincere. It was scintillating to meditate on. His new album is slated to be out December 26. From the sound of it, it will be definitely worth your purchase. Too bad Christian radio don't seem to find playtime for artists who actually have lyrics rather than repeats of worn-out worship songs.

I concur. I concur. I think he is just too honest and therefore not enough "positive, upbeat, and encouraging."
Rather, he is honest, piercing, and authentic. And there is an audience for this, as Webb has already realized. But the cool thing is that he cares not for the audience or record sales or air time, but rather what he is before God without the "suit of fig leaves." He is forerunner of things to come (hopefully). Good songwriting, that is.
