“We're really looking forward to the upcoming tour,” says David Crowder. “We have been great friends with the Shane’s and Robbie's band for a long time, and have talked about putting a tour together for a good while. Plus, the thought of seeing these new songs come to life in a live setting, with the visual presence of attachment to lives, is really exciting.”
"We're excited about this tour," says Shane Everett. "We hope folks will come out and join us. It's a band of Texas boys coming together with one heart, and it's going to be fun."
With its engaging live performance, David Crowder Band has captured the attention of such significant media as the New York Times, CNN, FOX News and others. After selling well over 200,000 copies of its sophomore release, Illuminate, David Crowder Band returns with A Collision, its first studio album in more than two years. The already critically acclaimed third national release includes more than 73 minutes over 18 tracks and features the first studio version of the concert favorite, “Here Is Our King,” which released to radio the first week in August.
In addition to other new, groundbreaking songs from the David Crowder Band, the album includes a cover of “Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven” by Loretta Lynn and the band’s first-ever take on bluegrass with “I Saw the Light” by Hank Williams, Sr.
Dove-nominated singer/songwriter duo Shane Barnard and Shane Everett released its first CD/DVD project on September 13. Shot in Super Definition and 5.1 Surround Sound, An Evening with Shane and Shane was recorded in an acoustic setting backed by a full band before an intimate crowd of friends and family at Shane and Shane’s Spaceway Studio’s in Duncanville, TX. The acoustic DVD/CD combo contains nine Shane & Shane fan favorites, including fresh arrangements of “Saved By Grace,” “Psalm 13,” and “Yearn,” and one new song, “Arise.” The new upbeat, emerging hit will be the first single from An Evening With Shane and Shane. In addition to the live performance, the DVD will include instructional guitar lessons and behind the scenes footage with Shane & Shane.
Houston-based Robbie Seay Band released four independent recordings before signing with Sparrow Records/EMI CMG for their August 16 label debut, Better Days. Comprised of Dan Hamilton, Ryan Owens, Chase Jenkins and Robbie Seay, the group leads worship at Houston’s Ecclesia, a downtown community of faith founded by Seay and his brother. The Texas foursome has developed a significant grassroots following by connecting with fans via www.robbieseayband.com selling their albums through online stores and touring.
